"I know that the days since September 11, 2001, have been ones of great sadness and anxiety for Muslims across Canada. Because the cold-blooded killers who committed the atrocities in New York and Washington invoked the name and words of Islam as justification, many of your faith have felt constrained when expressing your sympathy and solidarity with the victims. This despite the fact that many Muslims also perished in the attacks. Worse, some of you have been singled out for denunciation and violence, acts that have no place in Canada, or any civilized nation, and have made me feel shame as prime minister. I wanted to stand by your side today and to reaffirm with you that Islam has nothing to do with the mass murder that was planned and carried out by the terrorists and their masters. Like all faiths, Islam is about peace, about justice, and about harmony among all people."
