Statement From Senator Edward M. Kennedy

From the office of Senator Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts
September 12, 2001

REMARKS OF SENATOR EDWARD M. KENNEDY
SUPPORT FOR U.S. MUSLIM AND ARAB COMMUNITIES IN THE AFTERMATH OF
TERRORIST ATTACKS AGAINST THE UNITED STATES

I know that the American Muslim and Arab communities share the nation's horror and outrage over yesterday's terrorist attacks. They have issued strong statements unequivocally condemning these vicious atrocities and expressing their condolences to the families of the innocent people killed.

In the aftermath of these shameful attacks, there is understandable anger across the nation. But it is wrong and irresponsible to jump to conclusions and make false accusations against Arabs and Muslims in our communities. Above all, we must guard against any acts of violence based on such bigotry. America's ideals are under attack to, and we must do all we can to uphold them at this difficult time.

===================================================
Please thank Senator Kennedy for his position by calling his office.
Also please contact your representative and urge him/her to issue similar
statement.
