Reunion: Moslem Community Rallying Cry

Zarabes writes (Fr): “We members of the moslem community of la Reunion, are watching powerless the current events in Palestine and Lebanon. Tired of the ambiant silence, we ask the various heads of the island's masjids to hold a common discourse next Friday (July 28, 2006) for the salat of d'jouma or to delegate this task to the officiating Imam on that day. We suggest that all the bayanes that will take place this friday talk about the topic that currently preoccupies the Islamic world i.e. the slaying of our brothers, sisters and children in Palestine and Lebanon.”

  • I am Christian married to Muslim, I wish to join moderates from all sides to press for peace without violence. Have you read the book “Peace is the Way” by Deepak Chopra. It is a guide for peace, he states he set the spark for peace but that the flame must be ignited by populations of people setting the stage. If anyone is interested in pulling together forhumanity please contact me. I think we can overcome the violence by pulling together. My heart is with the world at this time.
