LOS ANGELES, California (November 13, 2007) – The Southern California Chapter of The Islamic Circle of North America wishes to convey it’s feeling of dismay with the Los Angeles Police Department’s announcement of mapping Muslim Communities. We request that the LAPD reconsider its strategy on approaching terrorism here in Southern California. We stand with other Muslim organizations such as the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California, MPAC, and CAIR in a united voice to denounce and reject the LAPD’s plan and any other plan to target Muslims as a community without a reasonable cause.
