Condemning the barbarous acts of ISIS and
the South Africa Xenophobia:

April 27, 2015

The news of the cold-blooded and inhumane killings of migrant Ethiopian Christians in Libya by the international terrorist group, so called, ISIS, has sent shockwaves throughout our Ethiopian community in Sydney and its surroundings.

The Ethiopian Community members in NSW are outraged, appalled, and anguished by the barbaric and immoral killings. We are deeply saddened and angered by this great tragedy and join the worldwide condemnation and expression of outrage against these monstrous acts of an extremist political Islamist group that has spilled the blood of countless people in the Middle-East and Africa.

We believe ISIS does not represent Islam or Muslims. Its vicious acts of terrorism are in absurdity to the teaching of the Holy scripture and the Prophet and have nothing to do with Islam and its principles that call for justice, kindness, fairness, freedom of faith and coexistence, which we Ethiopians are proud and always been exemplary in satisfying this since the commencement of Islam .

As we condemn the killings in Libya, we also condemn the attacks on innocent immigrants in the Republic of South Africa. These violent and unforgivable actions demonstrate once again that mainstream followers of all faiths must join together in challenging extremism and hate.

The Ethiopian Community Association, on behalf of Ethiopians residing in Sydney strongly condemns the recent brutal killings of the helpless and innocent Ethiopians in Libya by the Islamist extremist terrorist group called ISIS which doesn’t represent the mainstream Muslim and we also strongly condemn Xenophobic killings in South Africa

Our Association joins all the peace loving people around the globe in expressing our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims whose lives have been taken in gruesome killings in Libya and South Africa.

May God their souls Rest in peace!
Ethiopian Community Association of NSW
