—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—
JAMAICA, New York (July 29, 2006) – The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), a grassroots organization of American Muslims, requests the government to demand a cease fire between Israel and Lebanon as the UN, and EU have already done.
A humanitarian crisis has been created which is leaving people in a horrible condition. Airports, roads and bridges have been bombed heavily which has severely hampered any humanitarian aid. Hundreds of innocent people have been killed in Israeli air strikes, while over a thousand have been left injured. We call everyone to donate charitable organizations which will help to ease the suffering in the lives of these innocent people who have been displaced over night.
