—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—
 
JAMAICA, New York (October 27, 2011) – In a press release issued today, the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) congratulated the people of Tunisia on the democratic elections held this week, the first in nearly 50 years.

“We congratulate the people of Tunisia and the Ennahda party on the post-revolution democratic elections. Despite decades of torture, imprisonment and exile the Ennahda party remained committed to democracy and maintained a dignified struggle in face of adversaries. Its leadership led the Arab Spring and eventual transformation to democracy.
ICNA hopes that Western countries, including the United States, will wholeheartedly support this transformation and the choice of the Tunisian people.
We hope that the Arab regimes that are attempting to crush and resist the popular will of their citizens will follow the example of Tunisia and heed and respect the democratic process.”

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.
