NAHB Condemns Actions of Domestic Terrorist Group Near Seattle.

WASHINGTON -- Following is a statement released today by National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) President Sandy Dunn in response to the terrorist burning of several show homes in Woodinville, Wash. early Monday morning:

"The 235,000-member National Association of Home Builders strongly condemns the criminal actions of the radical and violent environmental group known as the Earth Liberation Front (ELF) in a suburb north of Seattle, Washington this morning, where at least four new homes were destroyed by arson. The FBI has previously identified ELF members as domestic terrorists and attributed many millions of dollars worth of damage to new homes and communities to this extremist group. ELF's heinous crimes do nothing to further the cause of environmentally sensitive home building, and everything to degrade ELF's own image in the public eye as a group of violent thugs who seek to damage and destroy property and put human lives in danger."

"NAHB supports the continued efforts of both local and federal law enforcement in bringing these criminals to justice and putting an end to ELF's unlawful and violent activities."

ABOUT NAHB: The National Association of Home Builders is a Washington-based trade association representing more than 235,000 members involved in home building, remodeling, multifamily construction, property management, subcontracting, design, housing finance, building product manufacturing and other aspects of residential and light commercial construction.
