      Amman suicide bombing an act of barbarity and cowardice

      MCC urges Muslims around the world to "challenge not just the
      terrorists, but also the philosophy and political doctrine used by them"

      TORONTO - The Muslim Canadian Congress has called the terrorist suicide
      bombings in Jordan an act of barbarism and cowardice. In a statement, Jehad
      Aliweiwi a member of the MCC Board, who has family in Amman, said, "the
      indiscriminate killing of ordinary people in Jordan should remind all
      Muslims that they face an unprecedented challenge. A tiny group of Islamic
      extremists are committing acts in the name of Islam while very few are
      standing up to these bullies."

      "Muslims around the world need to challenge not just the terrorists, but
      also the philosophy and political doctrine used by these cowards to justify
      their murderous deeds," said Jehad Aliweiwi.
      "Invoking Islam to commit Muslim-on-Muslim violence, either physically or
      verbally, is reprehensible and those who show case this terror as an act of
      'resistance' are equally complicit in these crimes," he added. "This is
      neither resistance to US occupation in Iraq nor an act of valour or
      sacrifice; it is simply murder," Aliweiwi added.

      Another MCC Director, Suhail AbualSameed, a Jordanian-Canadian who knows
      some of the people killed in the attack, angrily denounced the use of
      suicide bombing of innocent civilians as a weapon of choice. "Those who use
      religion to advocate killing need to be exposed for who they are. They are
      cowardly terrorists. Those who indirectly justify these acts of terrorism in
      the name of freedom and liberation, are also culpable in these crimes,"
      Suhail AbualSameed added.

      The MCC sent a letter of condolences to the Jordanian Ambassador in Ottawa
      expressing solidarity with the people of Jordan in their hour of sorrow.
