NYC government identifies 2 more victims of 9-11 attacks

As the 22nd memorial of September 11, 2001 approaches, at least 2 more victims of the horrifying jihad attack were identified by the NYC government:
Authorities in New York City identified two additional victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks on the World Trade Center, according to an official statement released Friday.

The man and woman are the 1,648th and 1,649th persons, respectively, to be identified using advanced DNA testing of remains recovered from the tragedy, the New York City Government said in a statement. The individuals’ names were not released publicly per the request of their families.

The man’s remains were recovered in 2001, while the woman’s were recovered in 2001, 2006 and 2013, per the statement. The last time a victim’s remains were identified was in September 2021. Officials also identified 60 additional human remains of previously identified victims. However, 1,104 victims — 40% of those killed in the attacks — have yet to be identified, according to the statement.
While this is important news, it's a terrible shame the same city government is allowing mosques to use loudspeakers, and no doubt, this is being done even at the expense of 9-11 victims:
Did the 9/11 hijackers and plotters succeed? Can it finally be said, nearly twenty-two years after they murdered nearly three thousand people in New York and Washington, that they have attained their objectives?

Back in 2003, Osama bin Laden wrote a letter to the American people in which he explained, “The first thing that we are calling you to is Islam.” Twenty years later, that very call will resound from loudspeakers all over the city that was his chief target on Sept. 11, 2001. (All the 9/11-was-an-inside-job types can find bin Laden taking responsibility for the attacks here). New York Mayor Eric Adams on Tuesday announced what Gothamist described as “new NYPD rules” that “will allow mosques in New York City to broadcast the Muslim call to prayer without a permit.”

Adams couched this rule change in language designed to give the impression that he was doing something for people of all religious communities, but ended up making it clear that he was making a special concession to Muslims only: “For too long, there has been confusion about which communities are allowed to amplify their calls to prayer,” he said. “Today, we are cutting red tape and saying clearly, if you are a mosque or house of worship of any kind, you do not have to apply for a permit to amplify your call to Friday prayer.” Well, great, but the only “house of worship of any kind” that has a call to prayer, and particularly one for Friday, is a mosque.

As given to shallow demagoguery as any other Democrat politician, Adams concluded grandly: “You are free to live your faith in New York City.” That’s swell, although the religious freedom of Muslims in New York City wasn’t really restricted before this. Adams appears to be completely indifferent to the fact that there are non-Muslims in New York City as well as Muslims, and there has been controversy over the broadcast of the Islamic call to prayer over loudspeakers for years. Back in 2016, Gothamist itself reported that neighbors of one city mosque found the call to prayer “too noisy,” and noted that they had “filed 156 noise complaints against Masjid al-Aman.” It’s grand that Muslims are free to live their faith in New York City, Mayor Adams, but do the neighbors of mosques have any right to enjoy a non-intrusive, noise-free environment, at least insofar as such a thing is possible at all in New York City?
Regrettably, that's not what the leftist NYC government supports at all. This year looks to be one of the saddest yet when you consider what dhimmitude much of the world degenerated into even long before 9-11.
