Arab Non-Governmental Organizations
Condemn Bloodshed of American Civilians

[September 13, 2001 ]  Arab NGO's denounce the criminal terrorist attack on American and non-American innocent civilians on Tuesday.

Arab human rights organizations have always based their advocacy for individual and collective human rights on one standard; they have always denounced all barbaric attacks on Palestinian and Iraqi as well as other civilians. Likewise, Arab human rights organizations denounce the barbaric onslaught on American civilians. We do hope that the American authorities would comply with the principles of the international law in hunting down and punishing the perpetrators. We also hope that the American authorities would not to carry out any collective punishments, which would increase the number of innocent victims.

Henceforth, the undersigned organizations express their concern about the growing incitement campaign, which is a form of racial discrimination, against Arabs and Muslims in America and Europe -irrespective of who would be held accountable at the end of investigations.
