CAIR: Muslims Must Donate Blood for Orlando Survivors

The Florida office of the Council on American Islamic Relations called for Muslims to donate blood in the wake of the Orlando spree-shooting that killed at least 50 revelers and wounded at least 50 more at the Pulse nightclub, where the gay bar was celebrating Latin Night.

In the wake of the shooting, the Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-FL) called on Muslim-Americans to donate blood in the city and joined with interfaith leader to condemn the deadly shooting spree.

“We condemn this monstrous attack and offer our heartfelt condolences to the families and loved ones of all those killed or injured. The Muslim community joins our fellow Americans in repudiating anyone or any group that would claim to justify or excuse such an appalling act of violence,” said CAIR-Florida’s Orlando regional coordinator Rasha Mubarak.

CAIR has been declared a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates and was named by federal prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding operation.

“The Muslim community joins our fellow Americans in repudiating anyone or any group that would claim to justify or excuse such an appalling act of violence,” Mubarak said.

The man identified by law enforcement as the spree-shooter is Omar Mir Seddique Mateen, a Port St. Lucie resident raised in a Muslim household.
