Appeal to All Christians to Stop American War Against Iraq
The Islamic Supreme Council of Canada (ISCC) extends good wishes to all Canadians on the occasion of the holiday season and requests them to remember, during this holiday season, the victims of 9/11 and the victims of its backlash against Muslims. It is very disappointing that the American strategy and plan to stop terrorism is creating more terrorism and chaos in this world. ISCC appeals to all Canadians to stop the American war against innocent children and civilians of Iraq. We believe that the US policy makers are trying to execute a wickedly designed conspiracy against Muslims of this world. American government is using Saddam Hussein as a scapegoat. The actual plan is to occupy Iraq.
Saddam Hussein has never been a practicing Muslim. In fact, the majority of Muslims believes that Saddam was planted and guided by American agencies. American agencies created this monster Saddam and now are using him to invade and occupy a Muslim country. America is bringing back the era of colonialism and racism in this world. We believe that Sadddam Hussein can be removed peacefully through intelligence and diplomacy. There is no need to rage a war.
ISCC urges the Prime Minister, Jean Chretien not to support USA in this war of terror and prejudice. The executive council and the members of ISCC are willing to provide any assistance to the government of Canada in order to stop the terror of Saddam Hussein and George Bush. Mr. Bush and his government are governing America through fear and intolerance. On one side the terrorists of 9/11 tried to take away the peace of this world but on the other side the American government is trying hard to make sure that the peace never returns to this world.
Therefore, ISCC will be holding two town hall meetings in Calgary and Toronto to discuss the American aggression against Iraq. In Calgary, the meeting will be held on December 29 at 3:30 PM atWhitehorn Community Centre, 228 Whitehorn Road, NE Calgary. Before the town hall meeting at 3:00 PM Prof. Syed Soharwardy will give a lecture on the topic ” Jesus Christ and Muhammad (Peace be upon them) – The Prophets of Islam “.
The second town hall meeting will be held in Toronto on January 3, 2003 at 7:30 PM at Lions Club of Credit Valley, 20 Rosewood Ave., Mississauga. Both programs are open to public and free.
