The American Human Rights (AHRC-USA) condemns in the strongest terms the latest wave of terrorist attacks in Qaa-Lebanon, Istanbul-Turkey, Karada-Iraq, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Qatif and one of the holiest Muslim Mosques, the burial place of Prophet Muhammad located at one of the holiest sites in Islam, the city of Medina Al-Munawarah, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on the heels of the last days of the holy month of Ramadan and on the heels of welcoming Eid Al-Fiter. These series of terrorist attacks are crimes against humanity that continue to shock the world’s conscience.
The cycle of targeting innocent lives has been posing a true challenge to the whole world. The culture of terror is rapidly growing and rapidly spreading fear, destruction and terror. This deep rooted challenge requires a deeper study into the causes for its existence, resources and support system in order to effectively defeat it and liberate the whole world of such threat.
AHRC-USA affirms that human life of every victim of war, terror and hate is equally precious regardless of the faith, color, nationality or origin of the victim or the perpetrator. The huge toll of human lives that these terror attacks have claimed should serve as a constant reminder that terrorism is our common enemy and that terrorism recognizes no religion or border.
AHRC express its condolences to all the victims and their families and wishes all the injured a speedy recovery. Together, we stand united against terrorism at home and abroad.
“The recent attacks present a clear proof that terrorism is a threat to all of us” said Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director. “It is time to stop the politics of division and to focus instead on the common threats- hate and terrorism,” added Hamad.
