Welcome to the
Muslim Coalition of Connecticut
"Building Bridges in the Community"
PRESS RELEASE January 19, 2017
The Muslim Coalition of Connecticut condemns in the strongest possible terms the bomb threat made against the Jewish Community Centers in West Hartford and Woodbridge.
Whereas no bomb was found at the preschools at 335 Bloomfield Ave, West Hartford and 360 Amity Road, Woodbridge, (Thank God) nevertheless, this act of hatred and mindset has no place in our society.
We offer our sincere sympathy and declare our solidarity to our Jewish Brothers and Sisters. We understand the nature of these threats can only cause fear, anxiety and confusion in the Jewish Community. We can relate to this kind of fear and assure our Jewish Brothers and Sisters that we stand with them in deflecting this repugnant behavior against them or any religious group. A threat to any religious group in our community is a threat to all groups.
We call upon the Police and investigating agencies for a swift apprehension of the perpetrator(s) and just punishment.
If the Muslim Coalition of Connecticut can be of any help please do not hesitate to contact us.
