CAIR: ZAWAHRI DOES NOT SPEAK FOR MUSLIMS

 

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 11/19/08) - A prominent national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group today condemned threatening rhetoric and racial slurs contained in a new video by Ayman al-Zawahri and said Al-Qaida's second-in-command does not speak for Muslims in this country or worldwide.

In a statement reacting to the new video, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said:

 

"As Muslims and as Americans, we will never let terrorist groups or terror leaders falsely claim to represent us or our faith. The legitimate grievances of Muslims in many areas of the world can never serve as an excuse or a justification for attacks on civilian populations. We once again repudiate Al-Qaida's actions, rhetoric and worldview and re-state our condemnation of all forms of terrorism and religious extremism."

CAIR took particular offense to al-Zawahri's use of the offensive term "house Negro" in reference to President-elect Barack Obama. "Islam rejects racism and seeks universal peace and brotherhood. We repudiate any and all use of racial slurs or insults."

 

The Washington-based council recently welcomed the arrest of two teenagers who allegedly assaulted a New York Muslim of African heritage on Election Night after reportedly shouting 'Obama' and condemned a cross-burning on the lawn of an Obama supporter in New Jersey.

CAIR, America's largest Islamic civil liberties group, has 35 offices and chapters nationwide and in Canada. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.

ADC Press Release:

ADC Denounces Al-Qaeda vile and racist attacks against President-Elect Obama

 

Washington, DC | November 20, 2008 | www.adc.org  | The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) today denounced the racist comments made by Al-Qaeda second in command, Dr. Ayman Al-Zawahri, about President-Elect Barack Obama.  Al-Zawahri, among other things, called the President-Elect a "house slave" and attacked him for denying his father's Muslim heritage.  The Muslim and Arab communities here and abroad reacted with shame to such vile language.  Al-Zawahiri’s message perpetuates division between civilizations by attacking a man who has pledged to bring people together. While proporting to speak as a “Muslim scholar,” Al-Zawaihiri does a great disservice to Islam, a religion which has welcomed members of all races and ethnicities since its inception.

 

ADC National Executive Director Kareem Shora said, "As we've always stated, these people do not speak for Islam, they do not speak on behalf of Arabs, and they are not representative of our community.  Al-Qaeda remains a fringe element in the Arab and Muslim world and we hope that President-Elect Obama will work with all communities to address legitimate grievances, vanquish extremist elements like Al-Qaeda, and bring people together. As His Majesty King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia said in a recent speech at the United Nations ‘We say today with a single voice that religions through which Almighty God sought to bring happiness to mankind should not be turned into instruments to cause misery....Human beings are created equals and partners on this planet.’  It is these voices of tolerance and unity which we must adhere to from the Arab and Muslim world and not the banter of malicious extremists.”
