CAIR’S ‘Not in the Name of Islam’ Petition


CAIR has launched an online petition drive designed to disassociate the
faith of Islam from the violent acts of a few Muslims. The petition on
CAIR’s web site, called “Not in the Name of Islam,” allows Muslims around
the world to help correct misperceptions of Islam and the Islamic stance on
religiously-motivated terror.

CAIR’s “Not in the Name of Islam” petition states: “We, the undersigned
Muslims, wish to state clearly that those who commit acts of terror, murder
and cruelty in the name of Islam are not only destroying innocent lives,
but are also betraying the values of the faith they claim to represent. No
injustice done to Muslims can ever justify the massacre of innocent people,
and no act of terror will ever serve the cause of Islam. We repudiate and
dissociate ourselves from any Muslim group or individual who commits such
brutal and un-Islamic acts. 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, peace be upon him.”
