The American Human Rights Council (AHRC) extends its condolences to the Abbas family for the tragic loss and death of Attorney Issam Abbas, his wife Dr Rima Abbas and their three young children due to a fatal car accident that took place yesterday (Sunday- Jan. 5, 2019) on the I-75 highway in the state of Kentucky as they were on their way back to Michigan from Florida.

Every year thousands of Americans die in car accidents. In many of these death, alcohol is a factor. The Abbas family was struck by a pickup truck driven by a person possibly driving under the influence. The most important human right is the right to life. Driving under the influence deprives innocent victims of the right to life.

The loss of Issam, Dr. Rima and their three (3) precious young children is a tragic loss to the whole community,” said Dr Saleh Muslah, AHRC Board President.

“No words can express the grief, pain and sorrow this tragedy has caused,” said Mr. Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director. “The community is united in its grief,” added Hamad. “We send our heartfelt condolences to the Abbas family,” concluded Hamad.
