Free Muslims Condemn London Terror Attacks
FrontPageMagazine.com | Friday, July 08, 2005
Washington, D.C.--The Free Muslims Coalition (FMC), a national Muslim organization with 15 chapters world wide, condemns the London terror attacks and calls on the silent majority of Muslims to stand up against the terrorists who commit evil in their name.
Again, the world has to witness another terror attack where innocent people are killed, and lives destroyed. Not surprisingly, a group calling itself "The Secret Organization of Al Qaeda in Europe" has posted a claim of responsibility for the series of blasts in London.
The statement of responsibility was published on a Web site that stated: "Rejoice, Islamic nation. Rejoice, Arab world. The time has come for vengeance against the Zionist crusader government of Britain in response to the massacres Britain committed in Iraq and Afghanistan. The heroic mujahedeen carried out a blessed attack in London, and now Britain is burning with fear and terror, from north to south, east to west. We warned the British government repeatedly. We have carried out our promise and carried out a military attack in Britain after great efforts by the heroic mujahedeen over a long period to ensure its success." "We continue to warn the governments of Denmark and Italy and all crusader governments that they will receive the same punishment if they do not withdraw their troops from Iraq and Afghanistan."
This statement shows that the criminals who committed the terror in London are proud of what they did and they are threatening additional attacks in the future. Moreover, notice that the terrorists use positive language to describe their crimes as if they were committing righteous acts. The irony is that the terrorists of Al Qaeda, similar to other terrorists, genuinely believe that they are moral and that they have right on their side.
For this reason, the Free Muslims Coalition constantly argues that the war against terrorism and, in particular, terrorism committed by Muslims is an ideological battle that cannot be won without the help of Muslims themselves. The Free Muslims Coalition was created to do just that but we need the help of other Muslims and other Muslim organization to counter the ideology of hate that comes from Al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.
In May of 2005, the Free Muslims Coalition, along with the American Islamic Forum for Democracy led a Muslim March Against Terror in Washington, DC. Many Muslim organizations refused to join us believing that such a march was not necessary. We hope that the latest terror attacks in London will convince other Muslim organizations that marches against terror and other expressions of oppositions to terrorism are necessary and essential.
