1. Language usage in the marker
This marker really emphasizes that the terrorists were Muslim. Whatever the intent of the authors, it will read as exclusionist to Americans who are of the Muslim faith. Statistically speaking, Muslims are no more or less likely to be terrorists than any other religious group, although they are more likely to be targeted for hate crimes than Americans of other religious backgrounds.
