The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations condemned the Orlando, Fla., nightclub shooting in a statement, and said it will call on the Muslim community to take part in a blood drive for those wounded in the attack Sunday. “We condemn this monstrous attack and offer our heartfelt condolences to the families and loved ones of all those killed or injured,” the statement said. “The Muslim community joins our fellow Americans in repudiating anyone or any group that would claim to justify or excuse such an appalling act of violence.”
