On October 10, 2001, the Los Angeles Times featured an editorial that began "as Osama bin Laden's call for all Islam to rise up in holy war against the United States echoes chillingly worldwide, it is heartening to hear increasing numbers of American Muslims denounce fundamentalist hatemongering. These moderates deserve strong encouragement as they seek to define their faith's proper place in America and to shape Islam for the world."
