The Council on American-Islamic Relations, CAIR, joins Americans of all faiths, and all people of conscience worldwide, in condemning Thursday’s bomb attacks in London as barbaric crimes that can never be justified or excused. American Muslims offer their sincere condolences to the loved ones of those who were killed or injured in the attacks and call for the swift apprehension and punishment of the perpetrators. In 2004, CAIR launched an online petition drive, designed to dissociate Islam from the violent acts of a few Muslims. The petition states in part: “We refuse to allow our faith to be held hostage by the criminal actions of a tiny minority acting outside the teachings of both the Quran and the Prophet Muhammad.” To view or sign the petition, go to: www.cair.com.
