The Islamic Society of Delaware joins our fellow Americans in condemning the horrific attack at Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA that has left at least 11 people confirmed dead and many more injured.
We share the grief and sorrow of the nation and offer our heartfelt condolences to the families and loved ones of all those killed and injured in this monstrous attack.
No religious tradition can ever justify nor condone such ruthless and senseless acts of violence. In the eyes of God, every life is sacred and the attack on a single life is akin to an attack on all humanity. We stand with the victims of this senseless act of violence and mourn with the families of the victims and pray for their ease and comfort during this time of difficulty.
We support our law enforcement authorities and urge them to bring to justice those responsible for this act of terror.
