Positive Stories For A Change


TUCSON'S JEWS, MUSLIMS TO JOIN IN WALK FOR PEACE -
Arizona Daily Star, 3/3/06
http://www.azstarnet.com/metro/118331

The third annual Muslim-Jewish PeaceWalk will take place this weekend. The three-mile walk will begin at 1:30 p.m. Sunday at the Islamic Center of Tucson, 901 E. First St., and end at Temple Emanu-El, 225 N. Country Club Road, between 3:30 and 5:30 p.m., when a prayer, a meal and music are scheduled. A midpoint break is scheduled for 2:15 p.m. at Himmel Park, North Tucson Boulevard and East First Street. The walk's purpose is to show that peace among people of all religions is possible.

AL-ARIAN'S CHRISTIAN CHAMPION
SHERYL KAY, St. Petersburg Times, 3/3/06
http://www.sptimes.com/2006/03/03/Northoftampa/Al_Arian_s_Christian_.shtml

During his seminary days, Pastor Warren Clark earned the nickname "el hippie." An avowed pacifist, he also believed the ministry should promote nonviolence and social justice. He worked in shanty towns in Argentina during the time of the "disappearances," when thousands vanished at the hands of the military. When he resumed the pulpit seven years ago, he chose First United Church of Tampa, whose core missions closely matched his own convictions - to be open and affirming to individuals of any sexual orientation, and to actively promote peace with justice. Today Clark, 58, has taken on a cause that some perceive to be outside the Christian mainstream: He is an outspoken supporter of Sami Al-Arian.

MUSLIM, CHRISTIAN TO EMBARK ON MISSION TO AFRICA, PAKISTAN

It could be a profile of cooperation; Muslims and Christians joined to save the woebegone.Sheikh Hasan Hajmohammad is co-founder and senior consultant of Baitulmaal (pronounced BAY-too-mall), an Irving-based group that helped victims of Hurricane Katrina, the Asian tsunami and the October earthquake in Pakistan.He will be joined by Eric Williams of DeSoto, head of a company that produces a religious talk show, on a trip to help those suffering drought in Africa and devastation in Pakistan.

What, good news doesn't incite commentary?

Hmmmm.....

:-), StS

Funny huh!

I find that philosophical posts do not elicit as much commentary as political posts. And, on other blogs (most people linked here excluded), utter idiocy, racism and f'ing stupidity top the charts for comments.

It's just that, well, good news kinda stuns me for a while. It takes a bit to recover from a shock like that.

I heard there's a guy out there somwhere who publishes a newspaper of nothing but good news. He said it often gets as big as six pages... :-)

 
At 5:03 PM, March 04, 2006 , Blogger Boris Yeltsin said...

Well, like they've always said in the newspaper business, "We don't write about the banks that didn't get robbed today." Sad, but true.

I like the idea of different religions getting along together. I wonder if this sort of thing happens anywhere outside of America?

 
At 7:56 AM, March 06, 2006 , Blogger Capt. Fogg said...

In the real world, it never happened unless the media promotes it. I would not have known about this if I had not read it here.

I have been asking myself why religions have been abandoning their various ships to the extremists and the violent and maybe the answer is that not all of them have. But again, if it doesn't make the headlines or the TV news, it is all wasted.

Not to rain on the parade (yes, I love puns) BUT>

I wonder what the Sudanese Christian response would be to this? Better yet, how would the Sudanese Muslims respond to this?

My goal is not to promote racial hatred but rather to question the status quo on what that religion truly espouses.

(Please keep in mind I am working to love the individual but despise the activity when I form my thoughts and questions.)

 
At 5:18 PM, March 06, 2006 , Blogger Intellectual Insurgent said...

What difference does it make what the response of people from Sudan would be? Why is that in any way relevant to the intentions of Muslims in Tucson?

If Muslims do something bad, it's because of the religion. If they do something good, are you suggesting that they are not doing it because of the religion? Is there anything Muslims can do short of converting to Christianity that will ever get an approving nod from you?

 
At 7:06 AM, March 07, 2006 , Blogger Possum said...

Ouch! I deserve that.

Yeah, I guess individuals can do something good in the name of almost any religion and I should respect that. The problem I see is that this activity in Tuscon seems to be the exception rather than the norm?

Or is this kind of thing just under-reported?

 
At 8:37 AM, March 07, 2006 , Blogger Intellectual Insurgent said...

It's becoming the norm here in the U.S. but, unfortunately, such activities do not get much press. I've been to the Palestinian-Jewish encounter activities (although I am neither) in DC, where I met an amazing array of rabbis and imams.

Islam is in desperate need of a reformation and, as I have argued before, it is going to be American Muslims who spearhead that effort. The Islamic world is trapped in its own rot for a myriad of reasons. It is up to American Muslims to take the risks people in oppressive societies cannot.
