You are welcome to participate in The Interfaith Freedom March, on Friday, March 25th, 2016. This is to commemorate “Land Day,” 2016. The group will meet 12:30 pm ———- at Qalandia Mosque, West Bank, Palestine, and then march toward the Qalandia Checkpoint.
My friends, it’s no longer possible to say, “Ah, that’s the other side of the World, what does this place have to do with me, my family, my world….”
The people in the Holy Land, Muslims, Jews and Christians alike, are enshrouded by deep suffering, terrible restrictions on freedoms, limitation of circulation, restricted access, unfair confiscation of land, water, etc. The occupation by the apartheid state of Israel is asphyxiating Palestine. Whenever that happens in the World, we all suffer because I truly believe, my friends, we are all connected.
When they are free (of suffering, etc.), only then can we be free!
It’s time we all do something about it, in an effective, non-violent way.
Let this march be a precursor to freedom through love and understanding by bringing all people together, as brothers and sisters and as children of the creator, showing the world that all people want peace in Israel and Palestine.
