I Do Stand With Charlie (ADDENDUM)

ORIGINAL POST HERE/TEXTE ORIGINAL ICI

ADDENDUM: J’ai pris le texte suivant d’un communiqué de l’Association Mosquée de la Capitale concernant les attentats en France.

“L’association Mosquée de la Capitale tient tout d’abord à exprimer ses sympathies et condoléances aux familles des journalistes tués lâchement par ces criminels en France.

Nous condamnons vigoureusement ces actes de terreur et lâchetés qui sont contre les valeurs de base de l’islam. La vie humaine est sacrée en islam.  “Celui qui avait tué une âme innocente, c’est comme s’il avait tué l’humanité entière, et celui qui sauve une âme, c’est comme s’il avait sauvé l’humanité entière. (Coran chapitre 5, verset 32)*”

*Je n’ai pas une copie du Coran sur moi, la citation est le leur.

The following text has been translated (by me) from a press release from the Association Mosquée de la Capitale (Capital Mosque Association), a mainstream Islamic organisation in Quebec City.

The Association Mosquée de la Capitale would like to first and foremost express its sympathies and condolences to the families of the journalists who were killed in a most cowardly way by these criminals in France. 

We vigorously condemn these acts of terror and cowardice which go against the most basic values of Islam. In Islam, human life is sacred. “For he who kills an innocent, it is as if he has killed all humanity. For he who saves one soul, it is as if he has saved all humanity. (Qur’an chapter 5 verse 32)*” 

*I don’t own a Qur’an (although I probably should get one as well as a Bible); the citation is theirs.
