Coalition for Peace urge Obama to protect the free world from radical Islam

published on January 20, 2009

Washington DC (Jan 20th, 2009): On Tuesday Jan 20th , Jewish, Hindu and Christian Organizations are joining forces in response to alarming terrorism situation in the world fuelled by radical Islam, to tell President Barack Obama, “Yes we can – and must – defeat the jihadists”. Calling them Coalition for Peace these groups plan to demonstrate in Lafayette Park in front of White House from 1-4:30PM.

All their banners will essentially urge Mr. Obama to “protect the Free World from radical Islam.” To accomplish this, they say, the President, in the name of world peace, must reform radical Islamist madrassas so that these schools stop teaching hate; seize Saudi assets in order to pay for the Islamists’ crimes against humanity; force Iran to halt its nuclear-weapons program that has directly threatened Israel; and recognize that Pakistan has played a double-game with the US, presenting itself as a friendly ally of America, while, at the same time, hosting terrorists who are plotting to murder all non-Muslims, especially targeting their next-door neighbors in India.

The demonstrators will point out that the same ideology that led to the terrorism that struck Mumbai in November and, during the last ten years, resulted in the murder of some 18,000 Indians (in 60,000 terror incidents), has plagued Israelis for decades. The same ideology that threatens to wipe out Israel has been brutal to minorities in Islamic countries such as Pakistan and Bangla Desh where in last 60 years the minority population was reduced from 25% to 1% in Pakistan and 30% to 7% in Bangla Desh.

“Islamist terrorism is a problem not just for Israel and India, but for the entire Free World. It is also a problem for Muslims who yearn for freedom of thought, as opposed to the tyranny imposed on them by Islamist theology,” said Narain Kataria, of Queens, one of the organizers of the protest. The demonstrators argue that radical, political Islam, fueled by oil revenues, “is nothing short of a threat to humanity and freedom of thought.” “It is absolutely essential for the US, the world’s only Super Power, to take the lead in exterminating terrorism from the face of the earth. Mr. Obama, yes, you can,” said Mr. Kataria.

Various organizations that have agreed to join the rally include Americans for a Safe Israel, Hindu Human Rights Watch, the Jewish Action Alliance, Zionist Organization of America, Christians’ Israel Public Action Campaign, Christians and Jews United for Israel,
Indian Americans Intellectual Forum, Maccabean Resistance Movement. The Jewish Voice and Opinion of Englewood, NJ, is also supporting the effort. “Joining the Coalition for Peace, which will also reach out to similar-minded Christians and moderate Muslims,
is one of the Jewish community’s best options for making a difference in the struggle to overcome Islamist terrorism,” said Susan Rosenbluth, editor of The Jewish Voice and

must prevail upon Mr. Obama to join us in this battle for peace” said Mr. Dosapati.
