Senator Edwards Reiterates His Statement of Support

(Washington DC, 9/20/01) The American Muslim Council commends the statement of Senator John Edwards (D-NC) that was made this afternoon in response to Rep. John Cooksey’s ignorant remarks against American Muslims and Arab-Muslims.

Senator Edwards reiterated his opposition to acts of violence against Americans of Arab descent and Islamic faith. “The Arab American and American Muslim community are a vital part of our nation. I condemn all threats and discrimination directed at these law-abiding, patriotic Americans. In our quest for justice, we must be careful to protect the civil rights and civil liberties of all Americans, including Americans of Arab descent and Islamic faith,” said Senator Edwards.
