Islamic Center of Palm Beach calls attacks 'deplorable and heinous'
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – The South Florida Muslim community is condemning the attacks in Paris.
The Islamic Center of Palm Beach issued a statement Saturday morning, calling the attacks, "deplorable and heinous."
French President Francois Hollande is blaming ISIS for the series of attacks across Paris Friday night that left at least 128 dead and many more injured.
In their statement, the Islamic Center of Palm Beach said, "Islamic scholars around the Muslim world have clarified that specific verses in the Quran related to warfare cannot be misconstrued to justify hijacking planes, suicide bombings, murder, or other criminal acts that are explicitly forbidden in the Islamic faith."
