In a statement released b the nation’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy group, CAIR stated: “On the 5th anniversary of the tragic 3/11 Madrid attacks, we once again condemn and repudiate all those who seek to justify the killing of civilians in order to achieve political or religious goals. Our position is clear. We unequivocally condemn all acts of terrorism, whether carried out by al-Qaeda, the Real IRA, FARC, Hamas, ETA, or any other group designated by the U.S. Department of State as a ‘Foreign Terrorist Organization.’”

The statement also avowed that condemnations alone will not end terrorism, and asserted its commitment to the basic Islamic principal that no one has the right to take another innocent life.
