Terrorist Attacks in Egypt

E-mail Print PDF

We the Turkish American Muslim Community of New Jersey are deeply saddened by the terrorist attacks in Sharm el-Sheik, Egypt, on July 23rd, 2005.

Incidents of terror in various parts of the world are the biggest strikes against the human dignity. The right to live is regarded as sacred and killing a person is equal to infidelity in Islam. We would like to repeat once again that terrorism leads to nowhere.

We would like to stress that any terrorist activity, no matter who does it and for what purpose, is the greatest blow to peace, democracy and humanity. For this reason we never approve of terrorist activities. These last bombings, for they occurred in an Islamic country, showed once again that terrorism has neither religion nor nationality.

We pray for God’s mercy on those who died in the attacks and express our condolences to their grieved families and the entire world.
