(6/29/16 – ATLANTA, GA) The Georgia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic relations today condemned Tuesday’s suicide bombings at an international airport in Turkey, which killed over 50 people of various faiths and nationalities.
No group has claimed responsibility but the attack bears the hallmarks of mass-casualty attacks in Paris, Brussels, and Baghdad.
“The fact that these deranged extremists slaughtered people of all backgrounds at an airport in the heart of the Islamic world represents further proof that such murderers do not represent any faith,” said CAIR Georgia Executive Director Edward Ahmed Mitchell. “We condemn this attack on our brothers and sisters in Turkey, just as we condemn all unjust violence, whether it occurs in Orlando, Chicago or Aleppo.”
