Thursday March 11, 4:09 pm ET 


WASHINGTON, March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The Council on

American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today condemned

deadly bomb attacks in Spain that left some 190 people

dead. The blasts tore through commuter trains and

stations on Thursday morning at the height of Madrid's

rush hour.


In its statement, CAIR said:

"These vicious acts of terrorism deserve the strongest

possible condemnation by all civilized people. We call

for the swift apprehension and punishment of the

perpetrators. Those who carry out such crimes only

generate revulsion for whatever cause they espouse."

CAIR, America's largest Islamic civil liberties group,

also reiterated its long-standing condemnation of all

acts of terrorism, whether perpetrated by individuals,

groups or states.

NOTE: CAIR offers an e-mail list designed to be a
