CAIR Condemns 'Heinous' Killings of Egyptian Christians, Deadly Attacks in Denmark
WASHINGTON - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today reiterated its condemnation of the ISIS terrorist group following the killing of 21 Egyptian Christians in Libya.
CAIR, the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, also condemned two deadly attacks in Denmark, one on a free speech event and the other targeting a synagogue.
In a statement, CAIR said:
"The heinous killing of innocent Egyptian Christians in Libya shocks the conscience and must be repudiated by those of every faith and background worldwide. The perpetrators of such monstrous acts place themselves outside any faith or ideology.
"As we condemn the killings in Libya, we also condemn the attacks on faith and freedom of speech in Denmark.
"These violent and inexcusable actions demonstrate once again that mainstream followers of all faiths must join together in challenging extremism and hate."
