Here are snippets from statements made by the Muslim Public Affairs Council:

We wholeheartedly support President George W. Bush in the attempt to defeat terrorism. We pray for the safety of our young men and women in Afghanistan who are fighting for a world free of terrorism, and we also pray for the safety of innocent civilians in the region. We applaud the President for his leadership in extending humanitarian aid to the suffering in Afghanistan. We appreciate the President’s assertion that this is a war against terrorism, not against Islam or Muslims or the Afghani people.

and by the American Arab Anti Discrimination Committee:

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) today expressed support for actions by the United States to bring to justice the criminals behind the September 11 attacks in New York and Washington, DC, and to ensure that no such attacks against the American people occur in the future. Arab Americans stand shoulder to shoulder with our government and fellow citizens in opposing those who would attack our country. ADC urges that, when military actions are required, they are targeted precisely at the guilty parties and their accomplices, and that every possible measure is taken to avoid civilian casualties.
