On December 3, 2001, The Hartford Courant featured an article on Ali Antwar, a Connecticut Muslim leader. "As the president of the Islamic Association of Greater Hartford, Antar was among the first Muslim leaders in the state to challenge the demonic image of his faith created by Osama bin Laden and other Muslim extremists. In the immediate aftermath of the attacks, the 61-year-old Bristol resident was repeatedly interviewed on television and radio. He continues to promote understanding by contributing newspaper opinion pieces, speaking at forums and organizing ecumenical and educational events, including a tour of his Berlin mosque."
