MEDIA ADVISORY, July 13 /Christian Newswire/ -- We at Arabic Christian Perspective have heard many times the claim that Islam is a religion of peace. We believe that this is not true. By reading the Qur'an, one will see that the suicide bombers are not fringe fanatics on the outskirts of Islam, they are actually the faithful and true who obey the teachings of the Qur'an and the life of Islam's prophet, Muhammad's. Suras 4:3, 9:5, 47:4 and 61:4 are clear examples of Allah's command to fight against non-Muslims. Islam is responsible for the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States of America, the July 7, 2005 London Underground bombings and the March 11, 2004 Madrid Train bombings, yet a growing group of people believe Islam is a religion of peace.
For the last three years we have been asking Muslim leaders to argue their side of this topic, but have received only three death threats or people who were not willing to meet our requirements listed below. To those who believe that Islam is of no harm to the UNITED STATES and its Freedoms, it is your responsibility to find a person who meets our requirements and is willing to debate the above topic.
We seek the highest level of Islamic scholars for this debate. To insure this, participants must provide a complete resume, including a degree in Islamic studies with five years minimum experience as an Islamic leader, and/or show proof of affiliation with any formally recognized Mosque, Islamic Center or Islamic organization. Participants must be knowledgeable in the Qur'an and Hadith as well as fluent in both Arabic and English and have forensic skills. The resume also needs to include a reference list of well-known Islamic scholars who can establish the participants' credentials. A standard form is included for your convenience.
We are scheduling this debate in Southern California for September 22nd, 2007. If the opposition fails to respond or declines to participate in the debate, our world-renown Middle-Eastern scholars will speak on the fact that Islam is a religion of terrorism according to the teachings of the Qur'an and the life of Islam's prophet, Muhammad. The goal of the debate is to seek the truth about Islam and disclose any misconceptions or deceptions currently being circulated within the Western culture.
If you support the position that Islam is a religion of peace and desire to debate this topic, or find someone to represent you, you must respond by August 11, 2007.
This will be a public event and all media and government officials are invited to attend. Pastor Saieg is available for interviews regarding this matter.
