The Council of Muslims Against Antisemitism (CMAA) has denounced Saturday’s coordinated terrorist assault on Israel that left more than 700 dead and at least 150 others kidnapped.
“The Council of Muslims Against Antisemitism and its Board strongly condemn the murderous attack on Israel and it’s civilian population by the terrorist organization Hamas backed by Iran,” CMAA President Raheel Raza said.
“As the details of the atrocities committed by Hamas are unfolding, we find that Hamas acted no different in their brutality than ISIS,” she added.
The CMAA also shared comments from a number of prominent Muslim thinkers “debunking the Islamist ideology and recognizing the truth,” including:
Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, founder and president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy — “Today we are all Israelis!”
Haras Rafiq, senior research fellow at ISGAP and trustee of Muslims Against Antisemitism UK — “This attack and escalation by Hamas is reminiscent of al-Qaeda’s attacks on 9/11 in its damage and proportional deaths/injuries. At a time when the region states are either at peace or negotiating peace, it is a deliberate tactic employed by Hamas and its backers to delegitimize peace and derail ongoing negotiations. We must not let the terrorists win!”
Noor Dahri, executive director, Islamic Theology of Counter Terrorism (UK) — “I strongly condemn these heinous crimes by Hamas against Israel. This was a war against Israel. It is time for the international community to stand with Israel and stop Hamas aggression for good.”
Dahlia al Aqidi, Iraqi-American journalist — “Iran-backed Palestinian terrorists launched an invasion against our ally Israel committing ghastly war crimes. They are celebrating their slaughter in Gaza and The West Bank. We must fully support Israel’s right to defend itself and stand strong on the front lines against terrorism. This is a time for choosing not fence-sitting. I stand unequivocally with Israel.”
Mohammad Rizwan, journalist for the National Post, Washington Post, Telegraph and Khaleej Times — “The unprovoked aggression unleashed by Hamas-Hezbollah terrorist-infiltrators inside Israel stunned the world. The well-planned and well-coordinated attack by Iranian backed Hezbollah and Hamas combined, is a dare-devil attempt to derail the impending Israeli-Saudi peace deal and a desperate bid to thwart the peace process in the Middle East underlined by Abraham Accords. Once this condemnable aggression is played out, the bogey of terrorism should be laid to rest once and for all. Thoughts and prayers for the victims of this abhorrent act of aggression.”
