  • Ugh. Are people so close-minded they're blaming this on the Islamic community? That's disgusting. The next time you see a Jew, remind them of that Jesus thing, eh? Or better yet, yell at those Christians for all the witches they burned and the towns they pillaged in the name of God. Yeah. No one needs to be pointing fingers, until they look at the history of their OWN religion.

  • “We condemn this cowardly attack in the strongest terms possible and ask that the perpetrators be punished to the full extent of the law. No religious or political ideology could ever justify or excuse such wanton and indiscriminate violence. The attack was particularly heinous in that it targeted the all-volunteer army that protects our nation. American Muslims stand with our fellow citizens in offering both prayers for the victims and sincere condolences to the families of those killed or injured.” -- CAIR

  • “The soldier who led this attack was either mentally unstable, or was motivated by a perverted ideology for which there can be no justification. ISNA is proud of the many Muslim men and women who serve loyally in the United States military. We are grateful for the sacrifices made by all US soldiers, who represent the religious, racial and ethnic diversity of America, to defend the Constitution and our name

  • Our immediate thoughts and prayers are with the wounded and with the families of the fallen, and with those who live and serve at Fort Hood.

    We strongly emphasize that this attack and its perpetrator are in no way representative of Muslims or the peace-loving religion of Islam. The individual(s) who perpetrated this attack blatantly acted against the teachings of Islam. The Islamic Center of Greater Austin stand with their neighbors and join scores of other local and national Muslim organizations in offering prayers for the victims, condolences to their families, and assistance where needed.

  • Central Texas Muslims include many veterans and active-duty personnel in the US Armed Forces, and countless Muslims have served in the US military with distinction and honor. We call on all Texans to come together at this time and emphasize our common values, respect for the law, and duty to our country.

    Dear General Hood:

    I am writing on behalf of the Muslim American Society (MAS), and our thousands of members throughout the United States, to express both our shock and our deep sadness in the aftermath of the shooting at Fort Hood that killed eleven individuals and left many more wounded. This unprovoked and unconscionable act of violence against American military personnel and civilians alike is utterly reprehensible, and against every tenet of faith and morality..

  • I say you worry about the millions of babies killed by abortion.

    Answer by Anonymous at 11:56 PM on Nov. 10, 2009

  • Unfortunately I have to agree with the anon. (not the abortion one) Posts like this are always posted with good intent, but they turn in to pools of hate. It's sad and disgusting the way the Muslim population has been and is continuing to be persecuted. But until we humans can understand the meaning of the word peace, someone is always going to get the short end of the stick... It's sad but true!
