Islam absolutely condemns and forbids terrorism and extremism. The Quran, Islam revealed text, states: "Whoever kills a person, it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind."  Islam promotes the sanctity of human life, dignity of all humans, and respect of human, civil rights. Islamic teachings uphold religious freedom and adherence to the same universal moral values which are accepted by the majority of people of all backgrounds and upon which the US Constitution was established and according to which the Bill of Rights was enunciated.
