American Muslim organizations are condemning the Boston Marathon bombings and urging Americans of all faiths to join them in praying for the victims and their families.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations also is asking American Muslims to offer authorities any leads they may have to help capture the perpetrators of Monday’s blasts.

CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper says it’s unfortunate that Muslims are often instantly considered suspects in such attacks.

The Muslim Public Affairs Council and the Muslim Peace Coalition USA also condemned the Boston bombings and extended condolences to victims and their families.

  1. […] and urging Americans of all faiths to join them in praying for the victims and their families. http://www.islamophobiatoday.com/2013/04/16/american-muslims-condemn-boston-marathon-bombings/ Peace glo Here I stand. I can do no other. May God help me. Amen. Come, let us worship […]

  2. Well written article. No one should be jumping to conclusions; in fact, that is the set up for elementary “Knee jerk” warfare. EX: The Purple People Eater’s (PPE’S) are the enemy. So some of us execute a terrorist attack on the people, right away a large number of ppl automatically blame the PPE’s and our (some that executed it) feed that frenzy, feeding hate and dissension. You would think that at smart as we are we could manage not to destroy ourselves (the human race), the other creatures that live(d) here, and the planet that sustains it. God help us!

  3. Unfortunately, if this turns out not to be an Islamic act of terror there are still swathes of young men who have martyred themselves to feed the narcissism of a long dead, supposedly illiterate, prophet whose religion of peace mandates barbaric punishment, approves of preemptive war, torture, slavery, temporary marriage, floggings, amputations, crucifixion, the destruction of other religions places of worship, polygamy, animal sacrifice, the murder of satirical artists, the death penalty for blasphemy, the disproportionate division of the spoils of war, inequality of the sexes, …

  4. If a Christian did it, then he is just a criminal, but if a Muslim did it then it is religious terrorism!!??
    I’m from Iceland. . We have some ethnic groups here and the only group I’ve never heard of involved in criminal activity are Muslims. I am christian and have nothing against Muslims. As a matter of fact I respect them.
