“This single act of an individual probably will overshadow the reality of millions of Americans who lead good lives every day as honorable citizens loving their faith, loving their country and appreciating the sacrifices of those who protect us,” said Ahmed Rehab.
“There are some seven million Muslims in America who are all peaceful, patriotic and support our troops so along with being deeply saddened and horrified by these events we are also concerned that people might call into question our patriotism and loyalty to this country,” said Amina Sharif, Council On American Islamic Relations.
Ahmad congratulated officials at the 2009 Illinois Committee for Honest Government’s (ICHG) Distinguished Service Awards Reception, saying their service to the people of this state “is to be commended and emulated by us all.” She also encouraged elected officials to approach their Muslim constituents who are becoming increasingly involved in the political arena and are actively serving their local communities.
