CAIR Welcomes Elimination of Osama
Anaheim, CA: A prominent national Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization has welcomed the announcement of the elimination of Osama bin Laden as a threat to America and the world.
In a statement issued following President Obama’s announcement of bin Laden’s death, the Greater Los Angeles Area office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-LA) said:
“We join our fellow citizens in welcoming the announcement that Osama bin Laden has been eliminated as a threat to our nation and the world through the actions of American military personnel. As we have stated repeatedly since the 9/11 terror attacks, bin Laden never represented Muslims or Islam. In fact, in addition to the killing of thousands of Americans, he and Al Qaeda caused the deaths of countless Muslims worldwide. We also reiterate President Obama’s clear statement tonight that the United States is not at war with Islam.”
