Eid Al Fitr — Eid Mubarak
I am feeling rather Grateful Today…
Grateful because I had the chance to share my Story, my Vision, and my Hopes for Peaceful Coexistence, with the Muslim Community of Seattle in the wonderful State of Washington. I was given the opportunity to offer my thoughts and my sincere wishes at the conclusion of the annual religious celebration Eid Al Fitr, at the IMAN center in Kirkland on the shores of Lake Washington…
As it turns out this was a very significant and pivotal moment at the History of my Campaign too, and because I have got the endorsement of the various Interfaith Associations for Tolerance and of the faith communities for Peace — am eager to embrace more articles of unique faiths from across the globe than anyone else. Tall order but I believe achievable…
Today is the biggest Muslim Holiday for a couple of Billion people all around the World. And perhaps we should also remember that this is the best occasion to address the people of the Muslim faith and extend a hand of Love & Friendship, during the celebrations for the end of Ramadan at the time of EId al Fitr… because this is also the time of atonement of sins, forgiveness of wrongs and reconciliation. In short it is a Time for Peace.
And it is this very time that we want more of that. We want more Peace and Love during these troubled times. We want more Tolerance not less. We have been running on the fumes of toleration and we need to build up our Reserves f t all over again. And that’s why at this moment of Divine Peace and Love — I want to wish Eid Mubarak to all of our Muslim Brothers and Sisters making their home here in America and to all of those who have chosen Washington State as their home state. Yet I also want to wish Eid Mubarak to all those Muslim friends all around the world and especially to those local to the community of the I.M.A.N. center in Kirkland Washington.
I share this because this Community welcomed me today with open hearts and enjoyed my Message of Peace, Wisdom, and Tolerance during a time of global intolerance and incivility. And the contrast could not have been greater when the message from all other Politicians is one of Hate and Division in response to the wanton violence erupting all around us — yet I choose to speak of Love and Compassion and also choose to personally make amends and offer atonement for all of our mutual errors and betrayals of trust towards each other…
You know it’s days like this that I connect and share my heartfelt and anguished voice to the benefit of sharing my global experiences from the hotspots of Violence — and it was not different today because I spoke from the Heart about Love and Coexistence in a time of trials and hate from evil people who prefer to stir their witches’ brew of violence and hate instead of seeing our shared Humanity. And we see that there are people out there that find meaning in hatred and invest in death and bloodshed because their hearts are misguided and have lost their way falling for venomous teachers and thus become the serpents’ egg.
I spoke and said that we are all the Sons of Abraham and we best behave like it because otherwise we will end up like Cain and Abel killing each other… I spoke deeply and emotionally and instantly felt the warm embrace of the Community palpably return this Love and Respect to myself as a representative in a long tradition of Leaders who strove for Peace, Justice, and Respect for the better Angels of our Hearts. I am also that kind of Leader that shared the travails of Human Beings that long ago and for a long and difficult time they led their People towards Peace and yet were not afraid to tell the truth and also fight on the front lines for Justice and for the basic Human Rights of the People, always at the service of Democracy.
Am also grateful today to the inspiring Leaders of the Muslim Community of Seattle today, and to Mohamed Jawad Khaki for inviting me and for hosting this one of my famous Peace & Reconciliation talks on the occasion of the Muslim celebrations for the end of Ramadan the EId al-Fitr at his center the I.M.A.N. in Kirkland on the shores of Lake Washington…
Now I want to wish Eid Mubarak to all of my Muslim Friends around the world yet especially to the community of the I.M.A.N. center and to those in Washington State that welcomed me today with open hearts and heard my Message of Peace, Wisdom, and Tolerance in a time of atonement.
A Great Thank you to all who were there and made this possible and those who enjoyed my Talks, so much so, that they invited me to have an evening Dialogue in this amazingly Open & Tolerant Muslim Kirkland gathering, the IMAN Center.
We will reconvene there, on the 15th for a proper series of talks and discussions again with the Leader Mohammed Jawad Khaki and yours truly, Dr Churchill.
Eid Mubarak to You, and all, and today I dare to hope that the Shia people and their Sunni brothers, will come along with the Christians, and the Jews – so that all the children of Abraham can finally feel at home in our ravaged Planet. I believe that if we invest in remembering our commonly held Parents coming down through the Ages of History in a long and halting lineage of great people — maybe just maybe — we will overcome the hate and replace it with Love, even if for just one day…
That is why I want to offer my wishes for a Commonly held Peace and Prosperity to One and All, to both Muslim and Christians and Jews, and to all others too — on this momentous Holiday.
I offer cheers to all who were at the IMAN Center, and enjoyed my Talks so much so, that I was invited to have an evening Dialogue in this amazing IMAN Center, on the 15th for a proper series of talks and discussions with the Leader Mohammed Jawad Khaki and yours truly, Dr Churchill.
God Bless You all.
Eid Mubarak and God Bless America.
Please accept my wishes for Commonly held Peace and Prosperity to One and All.
Accept my Compassion and my Kindness for our shared Humanity and offer a prayer for our Common Father Abraham that so long ago directed us to Love and Respect one another.
Let’s do this as an effort for Peace on this momentous Holiday.
