IOWA STATE UNIVERSITY professor asks students to write an account of 9/11 from the al-Qaeda terrorists point of view

That’s right, we are just so tired of hearing all the weeping accounts of mass devastation, lives in ruin, loved-ones lost, businesses destroyed, worldwide panic, yada, yada, yada. So, let’s look at 9/11 from a happier perspective – that of the 9/11 Muslim terrorists themselves.

Breitbart  According to a report from The College FixProfessor James Strohman, who teaches International Relations, asked students to write a 500-word essay giving a “historical account of 9/11 from the perspective of the terrorist network. In other words, how might Al-Qaeda or a non-Western historian describe what happened.”

“Don’t worry about the fact you don’t agree with the terrorists, the point of the exercise is to consider completely different perspectives,” the assignment continues. 

People soon reacted angrily to the assignment on Twitter, describing it as “sick” and “shameful.” 

However, ISU’s communications officer told The College Fix that the exercise was “no way an attempt to diminish the tragic events of September 11, 2001, nor was it designed to support the goals of Al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.”

Professor Strohman, who is a registered Democrat, has taught at the university for over 10 years and has “written extensively on American government and politics. He is also a member of the Iowa Employment Appeal Board.”

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I decided to use photos to present al-Qaeda’s point of view:

“Look, Muhammad, wouldn’t that be a fantastic spot for a new NYC Mega Mosque”

“Hey Jameel, did you bring your video camera?”

“How hot do you think it is up there?”

“Not to worry, Abdul, the world will blame it on the evil Zionists”

“Hussein, come look, I think that jumper is a Jew”

“Nothing like being coated in albestos dust in the morning”

“Hey, Ahmed, How the hell did we miss that damn cross?”

“Gee, we never expected the whole building to collapse. Allahu Akbar!”

“UH OH, I hope we didn’t destroy the mosque that’s in the Pentagon”

Oh, look, crispy critters”
