Wisconsin Muslims all Condemn Paris Attacks
The Wisconsin Council of Islamic Centers, including the Islamic Society of Milwaukee, are deeply saddened by and unequivocally condemn the savage attacks carried out by the terrorist group ISIS against innocent civilians in Paris. Earlier this week, this same vile group killed scores of innocent people in Beirut, Lebanon. Over the past few years, ISIS extremists have killed thousands of innocent people in Syria and Iraq, mainly Muslims, but also including American journalists, Zaidis, Christians and others.
ISIS has demonstrated once again that it is nothing more than a barbaric movement that lacks any sense of humanity. We reject any attempt by members of this group to associate themselves in any way with Islam or Muslims. ISIS represents everything that Islam condemns. As demonstrated by their actions in Paris and around the world, ISIS represents pure evil and hatred.
ISIS seeks to spread fear, chaos and disorder, whether in France, Lebanon, Syria or Iraq. All people of conscience must stand together, united in their humanity and in their resolve to work together to combat such an evil group. We must also resist those who will try to use the heinous actions of ISIS to spread divisive rhetoric and dissension within our societies. Such reactions, whether aimed at Muslims, immigrants or others, will only feed into the goals of ISIS.
As Muslim organizations, we will do everything in our power to vehemently oppose any group or individual that tries to misuse our faith to justify their criminal and barbaric behavior. The actions of ISIS will only increase our resolve to stand united with all those in our country, people of many faiths and backgrounds, against those who seek to harm all of us.
