ICNA Condemns Massacre of Protestors in Egypt


07 28 13

 

 

 
—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—
 
NEW YORK, NY (July 28, 2013) – The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) condemns yesterday’s massacre of scores of peaceful protestors and demands an immediate cessation of U.S. military aid to Egypt. The Egyptian military must safeguard the lives and properties of all Egyptians and must not become a hurdle for Egyptian democracy.

The politics of dividing the Egyptian people into sects and groups for political gain will only further destabilize Egyptian society. The Egyptian people must use proper judgment and engage in inclusive discourse with all political parties to chart out a stable and secure democratic future.

Efforts to prosecute political leadership, including President Morsi, must stop. These actions are a witch-hunt against a legitimate political entity and its supporters.

ICNA urges President Obama to utilize all diplomatic channels in calming the situation.

The undermining of democracy and the suppression of freedom of expression in Egypt require immediate action. We appeal to our fellow citizens to contact the White House, the Defense Secretary and the Secretary of State and demand immediate steps to stop the brutality that has devastated hundreds of lives.

In this month of Ramadan, ICNA requests American Muslims to keep the people of Egypt and all those suffering from oppression and tyranny in their prayers. We ask God All-Mighty to bring peace and stability to places plagued with uncertainty and fear.

 
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.

    Asalamo Alikokm,

    I would like to thank you on behalf of all Muslims for condemning the unjust military operations of Egypt.

    I am requesting you and your organization to provide people with the option of signing petitions and ask the authorities to take required political actions against Egypt’s military massacre immediately. I hope you transform my idea into action and we will do something practical for our brothers in Islam and humanity.

    May Allah belss all of us.

    Shame on you ICNA for taking sides in a still very mercy situation with a lot of un-answered questions and unclear picture of who is instigating the violence!! Any life lost is valuable whether its a ” peaceful ” Morsi supporter protester’s life in Cairo or a soldier protecting his country in Sinai . Truly disappointed.

  • Rahim Malik

    wicked, transgressed and heavily distorted Muslim who did this evil act.

  • Mustafa Kamal

    Stop killing people rite now!!!!

    I stand against taking innocent lives. It has to stop.

  • Wazir Baksh

    This crime is horrific. Its is against all that the modern world stand for. The US administration needs to use its influence to facilitate a peaceful transition. However, it is important that we answer why so much people hate the MB so much? Is it only because of propaganda? I believe the MB mis-managed their victory and got lost in the process to build a new Egypt. They should have formed a national Government of reconciliation rather than using their slim majority to get their own way. This is a globalized world. We need to make space for all as the Prophet did when he went to Madeenah.

    the brotherhood is a group of terrorists and anyone who can’t see that is either stupid or blind , there are no peaceful protesters among them and there is no military coup the truth of the situation is that the army and the people have united against these traitors and anyone who stands with them or aids them , so any interference will not be excepted
