USCMO Strongly Condemns Terror Attacks in Belgium, Turkey, and Mali


The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), a coalition of leading national and local Muslim organizations, strongly condemns the heinous terror attacks that took place early this morning in Brussels, Belgium and left at least 30 innocent people dead and many more injured. Similar terror attacks took place most  recently in Turkey and Mali and claimed the lives of tens of innocent people.

USCMO is utterly saddened by these repugnant attacks and stands consistent in its condemnation of any and all attacks on the sanctity of human life taking place anywhere in the world, regardless of the perpetrators, targets, or reasons. 
 
The US Council of Muslim Organizations stands in solidarity with the people of Belgium, Turkey, and Mali and sends its sincere prayers and condolences to the victims' families and loved ones. We urge the world to come together in peace and solidarity during this difficult time and rise above the hate and violence the perpetrators wish to spread.

Religions for Peace USA pledge our efforts to bring peace wherever we can, especially for those who need it most.



Our thoughts and prayers are turned to Belgium and all those grieving, crying and seeking relief from terror in Brussels today. Our Executive Director, Rev Robert Montgomery, shares his thoughts: 
 
"True religion inspires genuine wisdom, self-restraint, deep faith or religious reflection, the work toward peace and the well-being of all as one’s neighbors and indeed as members of one human family.  We at Religions for Peace USA pledge our efforts to bring peace wherever we can, especially for those who need it most.

Where there is hurt, let us work for healing.  Where there is injustice, let us stand together and seek courageous wisdom to resolve it.  Where there is suffering, let us spend our lives and our resources to end it.   Let us rise up to what our spiritual truths tell us, not drag them and our fellow human beings into the despair of hatred and death."

Making Democracy Work by Connecting Congress with the Muslim Communities they Serve



REGISTER HERE:  https://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/eventReg?oeidk=a07ec5k2esu3d566688


(WASHINGTON, D.C., 3/16/2015) -- On Monday, April 18, some 300 delegates from more than 20 states will take part in the second National Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.
 
The lobbying effort is sponsored by the US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), a coalition of leading national and local American Muslim organizations. Muslim delegates are expected to meet with a third of the House of Representatives and almost half of the Senate.
 
National Muslim Advocacy Day delegates will promote a legislative agenda in support of equality and social justice, and will outline the domestic priorities of the American Muslim community, including: 
  • Support for House and Senate resolutions recognizing and condemning Islamophobia.
  • Support legislation that enables individuals to build a credit history without taking on credit debt.
  • Support legislation that promotes greater access to fresh fruit, vegetables, and other healthful whole foods in impoverished areas.
  • Address American Muslim community concerns regarding the oversight, management and approach of federal Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) programs.
For more information about the event or about how Muslim organizations or community members can participate, visit the event registration page.
 
 
"With a dynamic legislative agenda, American Muslims are positioned to advocate for core social justice issues that will benefit all Americans, regardless of faith or background," said Robert McCaw, chairman of the USCMO Advocacy Day steering committee. 
 
USCMO Secretary General Oussama Jammal said: "Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill continues to empower the American Muslim community to work constructively with their elected officials and staff on Capitol Hill. It is important that members of Congress have the opportunity to get to know their Muslim constituents on a first name basis."

#SayTheirName #OurThreeBrothers

Three young men, Ahmed Mekki, Muhannad Tairab, Mohamed Taha Omar. 

The Mosque Cares | Ministry of Imam W. Deen Mohammed is mourning the Victims, standing with their Families and the Community.

Taking the life of a human being is never justified.  "If anyone slew a person, it would be as if he slew the whole people; and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people."  (5:32)

We hope the full weight of the law is brought upon the person or persons responsible. We all should continue to work closely with law enforcement, community service leaders, and the broader community to prevent such tragedies from happening again.
