CAIR Condemns Manhattan Terror Attack
WASHINGTON - In a statement, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, said: "CAIR condemns today's horrific and cowardly attack in Manhattan and offers sincere condolences to the loved ones of those killed and injured. Since the goal of such heinous crimes is to divide our nation, it is incumbent on Americans of all faiths and backgrounds to frustrate that criminal objective by standing united in the face of terror."
"Like all New Yorkers, we mourn those who died today, and our thoughts are with the families and friends they leave behind," said CAIR-NY Legal Director Albert Fox Cahn. "In the wake of this tragedy, we know that New Yorkers will not only show our city's enduring resilience, but we will prove that our love and compassion are stronger than anyone who attacks and divides us."
CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
La misión de CAIR es proteger las libertades civiles, capacitar a los musulmanes estadounidenses, y construir coaliciones que promuevan la justicia y la comprensión mutua.
