As salaam alaykum wa rahmatullah Dear All,
The Muslim American Society welcomes the news of the demise of Osama bin
Laden. The intentional killing of civilians for political ends is
terrorism, and this has been the mode of operation of Al Qaeda as
directed by Osama bin Laden. We pray that this development leads to a
reduction in radical extremism in the world, and that fewer fall victim
to it. Indeed fighting against acts of terror, radical extremism, and
its root causes must continue to be part of our nation’s agenda.
Finally, we pray that bin Laden’s demise brings some solace to the
thousands of families, Muslims and non-Muslims, who have been victimized
by Al Qaeda’s crimes.
