The American Human Rights Council (AHRC) joins peace loving people across the world in condemning the multiple coordinated terrorist attacks that struck innocent people in Paris, France. AHRC expresses its sincere condolences to the French government, the French people and the victims’ families for the loss of their loved ones and wish all the injured speedy recovery. Indeed, this is a very alarming tragic development. We echo President Obama statement that the attack is “an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share.”
The Beirut attack and the Paris attack clearly indicate that terrorism is a global threat and that terrorism recognizes no borders. Terrorism is our common enemy resulting in horrific crimes against humanity that can’t be tolerated under any circumstance. Effectively dealing with terrorism requires a global effort. Terrorism is a threat to the human rights of everyone with the right to life being the first of these threatened rights.
AHRC calls upon all the countries of the world and people of conscience to rise to the global challenge of terrorism. It is time to address the deep roots of this challenge and create an effective strategy to contain it and defeat it.
“Again we see a terror attack perpetrated on innocent people trying to live a normal life as human beings. From Beirut to Paris, regardless of the identity of the victims and the identity of the perpetrators, we see terrorism stealing precious lives and we condemn it,” said Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive director. “Terrorism is a global challenge that requires a global response,” stated Hamad.
