On February 27, 2004 News 10 reported, "A local group of Muslims rallied in Clinton Square Thursday, claiming that since the attacks of September 11th, they've been singled out. At the rally, signs and flags helped carry messages of injustice and discrimination. Women donned head scarves to show support for their Muslim neighbors. The gatherers were inspired by the memory of a day one year ago on which federal investigators questioned dozens of Arab and Muslim families living in Central New York. Group members say their treatment is similar to the way the Jews were treated during World War II."
