NEW YORK – An impressive crowd of over 3,000 Muslims and Christians were not deterred by the warnings of severe thunderstorms and hail as they boarded buses, vans, trains and planes throughout the United States and Canada to participate in the Muslim-Christian World Peace Rally, held in New York City, USA.
The participants gathered on the corner of 47th Street and 2nd Avenue, and boldly marched toward the United Nations building. The Muslims and Christians joined by peace activists, humanitarian organizations and politicians collectively initiated the first annual, “Rally for World Peace” of this type.
A newly established group, The United Muslim-Christian Forum (UMCF), hosted the historic event as they publicized their aims which include but are not limited to, Muslim–Christian Unity, taking a decisive stand against worldwide suffering, and launching a vigorous and unyielding advocacy campaign for world peace and against war and terror. During the program, the crowd was awed and invigorated as it was announced that the lifelong humanitarian and advocate for world peace, His Eminence, the Vice Chancellor of the International Quranic Open University, El Sheikh Syed Mubarik Ali Shah Gilani, called via telephone to send his regards and admiration for such efforts.
As they stood, at Dag Hammerskjold Plaza, in the shadow of the United Nation’s building, the theme of the gathering was encompassed in the opening remarks: “On this day, we stand on common ground. We serve notice to the world, that as Muslims and Christians we will no longer be duped or manipulated by a “hidden hand” into fighting, or going to war with each other.”
Amongst the distinguished guests were: the Honorable Earnest Davis, former Mayor of Mount Vernon, New York, Mr. Naquan Muhammad, representative of “The Islamic Political Party of America”, the distinguished Ms. Mary Yelenick, representative of the National Catholic Social Services Lobby, the Honorable Khalifa Hussein Adams Al-Qadri, Deputy Director of the International Quranic Open University, and the Honorable Khalifa Muhammad Atiq Qadri, President of Muslim Veterans of America Inc.
Further into the program UMCF made its dynamic demands clear:
President of the Muslim Veterans of America Inc., Khalifa Muhammad Atiq in his forceful speech demanded to know why 4,000 Jews had prior warning of the devised attack on the World Trade Center and stayed home while Muslims and Christians were kept in the dark and left to perish.
The Muslim war veteran quoted from Andrew Carrington Hitchcock’s popular book, The Synagogue of Satan which stated, “On September the 11th, the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon is orchestrated by Israel with the complicity of Britain and America, under the orders of the Rothschilds (international bankers), which they in turn blame on so-called Muslim terrorists.
This is Stage One of getting the Western World, on behalf of the Jews, to go to war with the Arab world. Here lies another textbook Mossad false flag operation; one should remember well their motto By Way Of Deception, Thou Shalt Do War.
The president of Muslim Veterans of America Inc., went on to show a glaring similarity with what transpired at Pearl Harbor when he quoted from the same book: “Interestingly, back in 1938, President Roosevelt tried his hardest to railroad the United States into the war in Europe to accommodate the Jews in the United States and the world, but when that failed he knew he had to try a different tactic. That was, of course, what happened at Pearl Harbor.”
Today, many books state that the US had broken the Japanese code and had prior knowledge of the pending attack by the Japanese but allowed it to take place to bring about America’s entry into the war.
Earnest Davis, the former Mayor of Mount Vernon, New York, made note that the crowds stand against the rain was like unto their “stand for peace against war and terror and remarked, “Our commitments may not take shape and force today, or immediately, but it will take shape and the annals of history and will make note that today we started a movement that leaves behind all else and moves toward peace in the world.”
Mayor Davis was followed in the program by the distinguished Ms. Mary Yelenick, representative of the National Catholic Social Services Lobby, who added, “What we do as a Catholic organization is what Muslims around the world have been, and still are doing: reaching out to others and standing strong for what is right and good and true.”
At the end of the program, as the rain came to an abrupt end, bringing forth the sun which shone fiercely, the Muslims and Christians joined hands and together with one voice repeated again, and again, Allahu Akbar (“God is Great!”)
It should be duly noted that, the inspiration for the rally took shape after both Muslims and Christians gathered earlier this year to celebrate the august birth of the Holy Last Messenger (peace be upon him).
It was then that both groups vowed that they were “fed up” and would stand together against those who are actively instigating clashes between Muslims and Christians any where in the world.
At this time, the interim board members of the United Muslim-Christian Forum are launching a worldwide membership drive, and will be holding a conference in the very near future.
