ICNA is greatly disturbed by the hostage situation at the Synagogue of Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville, Texas. We have learned that the situation is resolved by the law enforcement agencies and all the hostages are released safely.
As a faith-based representative Islamic organization, ICNA strongly reaffirms that Islam never condones such a crime – it is morally, religiously and ethically unacceptable.
We stand together with the Jewish community to combat such acts of terror that discriminate against color, race or religion. Unfortunately, we are at a time when our national discourse has become extremely polarized. We ask for the community to let law enforcement do their work to get to the bottom of this unfortunate incident.
