|Muhammad Ali paid a morale-boosting visit Thursday to rescue workers in the rubble of the World Trade Center. |
The Muslim former boxer and his wife, Lonnie, said they were saddened that some blame Islam for the terrorist attacks.
``Islam is not a religion of hate,'' said Lonnie Ali. ``It's a religion of love.'' Wearing a blue Fire Department baseball cap, the three-time heavyweight champion offered this message to people of different religious backgrounds: ``Rivers, ponds, lakes and streams - they all have different names, but they all contain water. Just as religions do - they all contain truths.''
``I can't tell you how much we appreciate his coming,'' said Richard Sheirer, director of the city Office of Emergency Management.
