I found this great post on Atlas Shrugs. Apparently Muslim Veterans are going to lay a wreath Honoring those Muslim Americans that were part of D-Day. The only problem is—THERE WERE NONE. I think all US Veterans of all backgrounds should be honored and on the other hand I think that people who lie about their service are amongst the most despicable people around:
Look, I am suspect of any World War II veterans group established in 1997 – uh…… huh? And it is common knowledge that the Muslims were conspiring with the Nazis. FACT. But facts are irrelevant when it comes to the Islamic narrative. Bill Warner sent me this latest outrage by CAIR — but remember if they keep repeating it, it becomes part of the conventional wisdom. Just ask Israel. Bill writes;

Bill adds, “I am as close to an expert on the invasion of Normandy as you can get, my father and his 3 brothers were at the invasion of Normandy, my Father (Robert Warner) parachuted into St. Mere Eglise France at 2:30am on 6/06/1944, D-Day, with the 82nd Airborne, there were no Muslim parachuter’s on 6/06/1944.”
