US Muslim Groups Stand Together To Denounce The Paris Terrorist Attacks


A coalition of eight leading U.S. Muslim organizations held a Saturday press conference in Washington D.C. to denounce the horrific Paris terrorist attacks that killed over 120 people. The U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) released a press statement on Saturday condemning the acts of terror. The statement read:

The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), a coalition of leading national and local Muslim organizations, strongly condemns the abhorrent terror attacks that took place yesterday in Paris and left over 150 innocent people dead and scores injured. USCMO stands consistent with its position against all forms of violence against innocent people anywhere in Turkey, Beirut, Syria, Paris, and on our soil irrespective of the perpetrators, targets, or reasons. These repugnant acts of violence defy the sanctity of every innocent human live and shall always be condemned and rejected.

The US Council of Muslim Organizations sends its heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims and to the people of France and stands in solidarity with them against terrorism and violent extremism. We ask the American Muslim community around the nation to hold candle light vigils in memory of the victims and in support of their families.

The USCMO coalition includes representatives from eight different Islamic organizations–the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), American Muslims for Palestine, Islamic Circle of North America, Muslim Alliance in North America, Muslim American Society, Muslim Legal Fund of America, Muslim Ummah of North America, and the Mosque Cares.

CAIR, the largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy group in the nation, also released a separate statement, saying:

These savage and despicable attacks on civilians, whether they occur in Paris, Beirut or any other city, are outrageous and without justification. We condemn these horrific crimes in the strongest terms possible. The perpetrators of these heinous attacks must be apprehended and brought to justice.

Many Muslim leaders in the United States are speaking out and standing with the people of Paris in these tumultuous times. Their voices may go unnoticed amidst the chaos, but they are speaking out against the terrorists who are committing crimes against humanity, and perverting the teachings of Islam to justify their murderous acts.
