The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), the largest coalition of leading national and local Muslim organizations, applauds law enforcement for their quick apprehension of the perpetrator responsible for terror attacks in New York and New Jersey over the weekend. USCMO condemns all such acts of violence in New York, New Jersey, and Minnesota as intolerable and anti-Islamic.

USCMO sends its heartfelt condolences to all those injured in the attacks and wishes them a speedy recovery.
