Quran Chapter 5 “The Table”

28 Nov

“For this reason We ordained for the Children of Israel that whoever slays a soul, unless it be for murder or for serious crimes, it is as though he killed all humanity;  and whoever keeps it alive, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind.  And though certainly Our messengers came to them with clear arguments, even after, many act excessively, beyond bounds.” Chapter 5 “Maedan–the Table”,Verse 32

NYC Community Groups Challenge Mainstreaming of Hate

6 Apr

NOTE: APRIL 2011

Increasingly Muslim New Yorkers are finding that Islamophobic scare tactics are spreading– hate is becoming mainstreamed. Only 10 days ago we organized a press conference against islamophobic training materials being used at NYPD. We trust this practice will indeed cease. But now we find speakers with a long history of virulent Islamophobia being included in an important discussion of Homeland Security in the New York State Senate.
