DEBUNKED: Disturbing Show of Support for 9/11 Hijackers

The Elk County Tea Party brought to our attention the following:

In case you are not able to read the sign below, it says,

We will be closed on Friday, September 11, 2009 to commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Ali (A.S.).



Imam Ali flew one of the planes into  the twin towers.

Nice  huh?

DEBUNKED

As one reader pointed out, this is a bit of a myth. Imam Ali was not a hijacker on 9/11, but rather Imam stands for religious leader and Ali was a 7th century religious figure, according to snopes and several other sources.

    I came accross your website a few days ago, and have been enjoying it since. However, I was disappointed that you passed along what is essentially a spam email that has been shown to be false. See http://www.snopes.com/rumors/photos/martyr.asp

    Good catch. I’m a bit embarrassed to say I intended on checking up on that before posting it, but ended up spending most of the day installing the new forum feature instead and honestly forgot about it 🙁

    I’ll update the story with the information you have shed. Thank you!
