AIFD thoughts and prayers are with the people of Boston after senseless attack
PHOENIX (April 16, 2013) – Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, a devout Muslim and author of “A Battle for the Soul of Islam: An American Muslim Patriot’s Fight to Save His Faith” issued the following statement on behalf of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) on the horrific attack on Boston, MA.
“The American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) sends it heartfelt condolences to the victims of the horrific attack on the City of Boston. Incidents like this remind us of the need to be constantly vigilant in the protection of this great country and all of our people.
There is evil in this world and we must be prepared to fight against it in all of its forms. The trauma and death of the innocent including the death of a young eight year old boy are a stark reminder of this fact. We are reminded of how vulnerable we all our as we struggle to maintain normalcy in our free and open democracy. But we also can find solace in the resiliency of the American people.
While it is early in this investigation, we pray for our law enforcement officials to be able to swiftly find the culprits of this heinous act and bring them all to justice.
Terror in all of its forms is a symptom of a much greater ideological battle and we will not eliminate these incidents until we take the battle to the enemy and destroy their ideological position”
