American Egyptian Strategic Alliance (AESA) Condemns Attacks on US Embassies in Libya and Egypt

Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

WASHINGTON, Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Egyptian Strategic Alliance (AESA) (www.americanegyptiansa.org) strongly and unequivocally condemns the heinous, deadly violence perpetrated by extreme elements in both Libya and Egypt against members of the United States diplomatic corps. 

As Americans we take pride in and appreciate the work that these diligent civil servants carry out in safeguarding and advancing the interests of the United States and all Americans, including Egyptian Americans, across the globe.

Further, we would like to express our deepest sorrow and regret for the unfortunate death of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, as well as the other members of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Ambassador Stevens was an exemplary individual who dedicated his life and career to fighting the mutual distrust and lack of respect for the other that has at times marred the relationship between the United States and the Arab world and that ultimately led to his untimely death.

As Egyptian-Americans, we also stand united in our unquestionable condemnation of the "video," denigrating the Prophet Muhammad. It is obvious that the video was a deliberate and premeditated attempt to insult, in the basest terms, a billion Muslims without regard to the impact it would and has already had.  

At the same time, we repeat that there is no justification that would excuse or validate the wanton, irrational violence in attacking our embassies in Libya and Egypt.

Finally, we as Egyptian-Americans are proud to be Americans and remain confident in the knowledge that what happened yesterday in Egypt does not represent the true values of a people who stood up more than a year ago, united, cross and crescent, in their rejection of bigotry, injustice and tyranny in all its guises.

ABOUT AESA
As a 501(c)(4) organization, AESA strives to assist decision makers in defining and shaping U.S. policies towards Egypt, and in furthering the creation and protection of a civil society which is based on the universal values of human dignity, democratic process, freedom of speech and individual rights.
