An initiative of Jewish voice for peace
Petition - say no to intolerance
It is our duty to keep law and order and faithfully guard the safety of every citizen. Hate is one of the many sources of disrupting peace in a society and it is our duty to track down the source of such hate and work on mitigating it. We have an obligation to bring and maintain a balance in the society.
We lose the balance and that elusive equilibrium if we let hate mongers, hate sermons and hate lectures creep in our societies.
It is ironic that there is actually shameless campaigning going out to promote hate against another people. How are they different than KKK and the Nazis?
Peace involves using the language and action that mitigates conflict and not enflare it.
We need to dialogue with Spencer, Horowitz, Colter, Santorium and Emerson, the premier group that erroneously creates chaos hoping it leads to peace. My prayers and invitation to these men and woman to have a true conference about the issue, and do it in a civil democratic fair way. That which is sustainable and Just.
Hating Muslims or any one, will not bring peace. Peace comes when one can act and talk peace.
The Jewish voice for peace has taken the initiative to bring about some sense to this senseless spread of hate. Please sign the petition and forward it to your friends. Remember, peace is the moral responsibility of each one of us, if we cannot do anything, at least express our support by signing the petition.

On October 22-26 the so-called Terrorism Awareness Project, will send extremist speakers to campuses across the country to spread a message of intolerance and Islamophobia, in a campaign billed as "the biggest conservative campus protest ever."
The list of speakers include:
> Ann Coulter, who recently made quite a splash with her unabashed Jew-hatred;> Robert Spencer, who calls Islam, "the world's most intolerant religion;"> Rick Santorum, who compared homosexuality to incest and bestiality;> And of course, David Horowitz whose long history of racism has included attacks on affirmative action and the statement that 'guns don't kill black people, other blacks do.'
These and other hate-mongers will be demonizing Islam and portraying a one-sided and bigoted view of a faith held by billions of people around the world.
