— Surely we belong to God and to Him shall we return’ (Quran, 2:156)
The American Islamic Forum for Democracy extends our heartfelt deepest condolences to the family of Andrew Breitbart and all of his close friends
Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, AIFD President & Founder, had this to say:
Andrew has not only been a long time friend but a fellow warrior in the battle for liberty and the war of ideas. Words cannot express our shock at the loss that our country has suffered today with Andrew’s death.
Andrew, we will miss you more than words can describe. You will be in our prayers forever. We know that you fought for us and from now forward we will fight for you!
While you were with us, we should have expressed to you more our thankfulness and gratitude for the ground you broke for us on so many levels. To new media, the blogosphere, and the war of ideas you are a pioneer who will have a special place in history. Thank you for giving so many of us the ability to find a home where our ideas could be heard. I was truly blessed for the time I had to get to know you. Please know that while we will no longer be able to commiserate on this earth, I will continue commiserating with you in prayer from her e forward.
Know that today all of us warriors in the battle for liberty are Andrew Breitbart!
Andrew, thank you for all that you’ve done, and may the rest of our work live up to the courage you had in standing for the ideas in which you believed and for which you stood. Thank you for believing in us and for exemplifying the courage that many of us strive to emulate. May God protect you and your family always. May your work live on in the work of others. Andrew we love you. Our deepest condolences to your wife and your four children.
