09/11/2015 AIFD Remembers 9-11

Dear Friend of AIFD,


We at the American Islamic Forum for Democracy would like to extend our love and ongoing prayers to all of those who lost friends, colleagues and loved ones in the horrific attacks on September 11, 2001. We would also like to express our continued gratitude to our armed forces and first responders, and all those who risked their lives to save others on that day and afterward. We are in awe as we bear witness to your courage.

AIFD was founded in the wake of that horrific attack on our nation and values. As we joined our fellow Americans in grief, we recognized that day as a call to action: we as American Muslims saw that we must do more to combat radical Islam.

Fourteen years after that day, the threat remains real – and grows. ISIS continues its rampage, and too many of our fellow Americans – Muslim and non-Muslim – still refuse to take a stand against Islamism.

Today and every day, we vow to you our steadfast dedication to the cause of liberty and universal human rights. While we have made strides in our mission to advance reform within the Muslim community, we know that our work is far from over – and is more urgent than ever before.

As we remember September 11th and honor those lives lost, we must also continue to focus our attention on America’s vital role in global security and human rights. This week, Dr. Jasser addressed the Syrian refugee crisis and America’s role in the world in an important interview with Fox Business. Click here to view the interview on MSN. For all of Dr. Jasser’s recent media appearances, please visit our YouTube channel.
