TERROR ATTACK:
THE AFTERMATH

MUSLIMS STAND TO HELP VICTIMS OF TERROR ATTACKS
(WASHINGTON, DC - 9/11/2001) - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a prominent Washington-based Islamic advocacy group, is calling on Muslims nationwide to offer whatever assistance they can to help the victims of today's terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, D.C. In an alert to the American Muslim community, CAIR suggested that the following actions be taken: Muslim medical professionals are asked to go to the scenes of the attacks to offer aid and comfort to the victims. Muslim relief agencies should contact their counterparts to offer support in the recovery efforts. Individual Muslims should donate blood by contacting the local office of the Red Cross. (Call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE or 1-800-HELP-NOW.) They should also send donations to those relief agencies that are on the scene of the attacks.

::: TERRORISM IN AMERICA :::
As the dark clouds of dust and rubble begin to clear away, the consequences of such a horrific catastrophe that has changed thousands of innocent lives and the skylines of New York, are beginning to be realized. Indeed, the Muslim Students Association of CSUN, along with the whole Muslim community of North America, joins their fellow Americans today in condemning and abhoring these acts of terrorism and sympathizes with the victims of this tragedy.
