US Council of Muslim Organizations Statement on Steven Sotloff's Murder

Media Contact:
Oussama Jammal
Secretary General

Muslim Coalition denounces ISIS for Steven Sotloff's Murder
(WASHINGTON DC - 09/03/2014) - The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), a coalition of several national and local organizations, today condemns a terrorist and anti-Islam group for a video purporting to show the gruesome beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff. 

The murder of innocent civilians is immoral, illegal, barbaric, and in direct contravention of the major tenets of Islam and Islamic law. No cause or purpose is served by this heinous act other than a clear manifestation of this group's cruel and un-Islamic nature.

"We are outraged that we once again find ourselves in the position to condemn this organization that calls itself the "Islamic State", also known by the acronym ISIS, for killing Mr. Sotloff, especially so soon after its members murdered journalist James Foley," said Oussama Jammal, USCMO secretary general. 

"We recognize that all innocent life is sacred and so we also denounce this group for the rampant violence, terror, murder and mayhem it is spreading throughout the region against Muslims and non-Muslims alike. They do not represent me, American Muslims or the world's 1.5 billion Muslim. ISIS must know that such a dreadful acts will never be condoned and will be strongly deplored," Mr. Jammal emphasized.

During these difficult days, the USCMO also reminds the public to avoid spreading Islamophobia by using the actions of ISIS to characterize and demonize all Muslims, globally and here in the United States. We unequivocally denounce ISIS, its mentality, and tactics under any circumstances. 

"We at the USCMO offer our heartfelt condolences to Mr. Sotloff's family. We pray they find solace and we pray that Mr. Sotloff's murderers will be brought to justice," Mr. Jammal said. 

The USCMO also demands the immediate release of British hostage David Cawthorne Haines, who was seen in the current video and whom the group threatened to execute as well.

Founding members of USCMO: American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA), Muslim American Society (MAS), Muslim Legal Fund of America (MLFA), Muslim Ummah of North America (MUNA), The Mosque Cares (Ministry of Imam W. Deen Mohammed).
