I strongly Condemn Tom Tancredo for his latest Anti Muslim Threats and should be labeled as a Terrorist.Where is the FBI, United Nations, International Laws about this pathetic Terrorist. Terrorist and he is running for President.. God Help us....
Terrorism is a term used to describe violence or other harmful acts committed (or threatened) against civilians by groups or persons for political or other ideological goals. Most definitions of terrorism include only those acts which are intended to create fear or "terror", are perpetrated for an ideological goal (as opposed to a lone attack), and deliberately target or utterly disregard the safety of non-combatants. Many definitions also include only acts of unlawful violence.
Responding to reports that Rep. Tom Tancredo repeated his 2005 threat to blow up Muslim Holy sites in the event of a nuclear attack on America by Islamic extremists, the Anti-Defamation League again criticized his comments, calling them "outrageous, inflammatory and un-American."
ADL Mountain States Regional Office issued the following statement:
Representative Tom Tancredo's comments threatening to blow up Muslim holy sites in the event America suffers a nuclear attack by Muslim extremists are outrageous, inflammatory and un-American. Although the threat of Islamist extremist terrorism is real, Rep. Tancredo should know that extremists come in all faiths, and do not reflect the values and beliefs of the vast majority of the members of the religious groups to which they belong.
The Congressman's inflammatory comments do nothing to advance America's role in the world as the leading voice for religious freedom and should be soundly condemned. ADL will continue to speak out against anti-Muslim rhetoric, which has no place in our democratic country, especially by political leaders.
