A series of videos produced for the National Park Service shows American Muslim students blaming hatred against their faith on the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The story was first reported by Sancho Panza in the Independent Journal Review. The videos also promoted Islam as a pioneer in women's rights and addressed a "general ignorance about what Islam is."
"Islam within itself, Islam itself means peace," the government video states. "Islam brings nothing but peace if you truly look into it."
The video was posted on the website for the Women's Rights National Historical Park. It was filmed at the AnNur Islamic School in Schenectady, N.Y. by a National Park Service intern.
According to the park's website, the three-part series features children as they "discuss their experiences and challenges with negative Muslim stereotypes and assumptions."
