ICNA Condemns killings by ISIS

-—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—-
 
(NEW YORK, NY, Sept. 4, 2014) – The Islamic Circle of North America denounces the horrific execution of journalist Steven Sotloff and hundreds of others by the terrorist organization Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

“The mind-numbing brutality of ISIS is in absolute opposition to the values of any faith,” said Naeem Baig, president of ICNA. “We are incredibly saddened at the loss of life, and our prayers are with loved ones in this time of sorrow.”

The terror organization has been condemned by Muslims within the United States and across the world, who are disgusted by their abhorrent violence and cruelty.

They have massacred hundreds upon hundreds of civilians in towns across Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, creating and spreading an atmosphere of intense fear.

In its fifth chapter, the Quran states that “Because of this did We ordain unto the children of Israel that if anyone slays a human being-unless it be [in punishment] for murder or for spreading corruption on earth-it shall be as though he had slain all mankind; whereas, if anyone saves a life, it shall be as though he had saved the lives of all mankind. And, indeed, there came unto them Our apostles with all evidence of the truth: yet, behold, notwithstanding all this, many of them go on committing all manner of excesses on earth.

Last month ICNA condemned the murder of journalist James Foley by the criminal group, and issued a statement against ISIS.

 
The Islamic Circle of North America is a leading American Muslim organization dedicated to the betterment of society through the application of Islamic values. Since 1968, ICNA has worked to build relations between communities by devoting itself to education, outreach, social services and relief efforts.

  • Proud American

    Please start calling this terrorist group as “QSIS”, (Al Qaeda Separatist in
    Iraq and Syria) as suggested by Mufti Shawqi Allam of Egypt). Please write to every organization that still uses the incorrect term ‘ISIS’ or ‘IS’, and write comments in articles by International news organizations correcting the name. They might have captured some physical space, but do not cede them any mental, intellectual, or moral space by letting them use Islam’s name.

    You should also condem ISIS when they kill Muslim minorities not just Westerners.
