On Nov. 15, 2012, day three of the recent eight-day bombardment of Gaza, Ahmed Basyouni and his family were watching news of the attacks on TV in their home in the eastern section of Beit Hanoun.

Attack on Sikh Temple is not an act of random senseless violence

Posted by Mufti Admin on Monday, August 6, 2012, In : Press release 
It is not an act of “random” “senseless” violence.

Sikhs, Muslims, Latinos and Africans are increasingly targets of rising hate in the USA. These attacks are sanctioned by a political culture that tolerates hate speech and promotes xenophobia. As hate is rising in the nation, it is critical that the forces of peace and justice mediate anger into positive energy of relationships. We must build a stronger peace movement for the future of our children and the planet.

It was in the midst of about a hundred labor leaders that Joe Lombardo told me that a slogan being used by Wisconsinites protesting their governor’s union-busting laws is “Walk Like An Egyptian”. I cannot think of a better tribute to the courageous protestors of Cairo’s Liberation Square than this one. I wish someone could tell them that they have inspired not only those in the Arab world, but even those living in the world’s freest nation. Joe Lombardo is co-c...
