Rally Condemns Terrorism

A simple but powerful message defined a Muslim-sponsored rally held April 25 in Patriot’s Square Park in downtown Phoenix: the targeting and killing of innocent civilians is absolutely wrong. The rally is believed to be the first of its kind in the nation – a public gathering of Muslims, in solidarity with people of other faiths, unequivocally denoun-cing terrorism. Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a Phoenix physician and chairman of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, organized the event. Jasser said it’s time to “rally together around certain absolute, moral truths that make civilized life possible. God has created all these spiritual paths to lay down certain eternal, absolute laws so that humankind can live in peace. The killing of innocent people out of revenge, hate or retribution is against those absolute laws. People can justify their actions all day long, but we as Muslims are saying … that those acts are against every thing for which we stand.” Go to this link at the Jewish News of Greater Phoenix for the entire news story
