On November 9, 2001, the St. Petersburgh Times reported that "any other year, the events of Islamic Awareness Week at the University of South Florida would be an opportunity for USF Muslims to share what they know about one of the world's great religions. This year, though, the recent terror attacks have created an urgency to get their message out about the true meaning of Islam and counter what they say are misconceptions and distortions being fostered by fears and ill-informed media sources."
