AIC is saddened by the news of the taking of hostages by an ISIL-supporter in Sydney, Australia on December 15, 2014 and today’s terrible news of the murder of over 120 people–most of whom were children–in Peshawar, Pakistan by the Taliban. AIC condemns in the strongest terms these cowardly, vicious acts committed by radicals. In this holiday season, we hope their souls find peace.
