Speeches

An aware and wisdom-seeking Muslim believes in himself and his belief, and therefore can fear not the other. Tolerance is a sign of open-mindedness, and the intellectual and behavioral world of Muslims is indeed open and vast. Those who are tolerant believe in themselves and their role in the world, and they are known for their foresight. Intellectuality is compatible with foresight and open-mindedness, and tradition is jeopardized through narrow-mindedness.

Civic responsibility in political society, I believe, refers to the duties and responsibilities of the individual Muslim as a citizen to the society that gives him protection and provides the environment for the fulfillment of his personal potential.

Like other religions, Islam teaches us to love and respect, to be kind and helpful to everyone. Prophet Mohammed clearly prohibited killing those who are not fighting with you and killing women and children even during war. Life is sacred. Saving a life is like saving all of mankind. And killing one is like killing all of mankind.

Human rights, affirmed by the Holy Qur’an, are basic rights in Islam enforced and protected by law, authority, and all concerned in the Islamic community.

Prophet Mohammed came into this world for the blessings of everyone. This is not just for Muslims. It is for everyone, for all regions. And he is a prophet of blessings, a prophet of blessings for everyone.

The pursuit of interreligious dialogue and harmony should not be simply an academic one. We must be aware that we live in a religiously, culturally and ideologically pluralistic world that we can either share or destroy. We must, therefore, be selective in our choices of sacred texts and concepts, and we should give preference to those that encourage greater understanding and cooperation among the people of different faiths and ideologies.

A vicious cycle of anger, hatred, and violence between the Palestinian and Israeli peoples has led to a terrible loss of human life, great suffering, and an ongoing disregard for basic human rights. The nations’ leaders will also have to be bold and courageous enough to face the taboos that have been avoided, namely, the issue of Jerusalem and the holy sites, the borders between the two neighbors, the settlements, and finally—the heart of the problem and the most sensitive aspect—the issue of the refugees and their right to return.

Our land is the land of peace. It is the temple, the birthplace of the Messiah, the place through which the prophet Mohammed passed, the Western Wall and the home of Jethro in Tiberias. Brothers and sisters, God demands that we make peace among ourselves. Speak only that which is good. God forbids us from disparaging others just as He forbids murder and bloodshed.

Israeli Arabs are Palestinians and they are Israelis. We understand the Israelis and the Palestinians, and I think that we have a very vital role in bridging the Israelis and the Palestinians. This is our task, and we are working on it. Unfortunately, we lack the tools—the possibility, credibility and trust from both sides.

Jesus said that in order to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, we must come as babies. That is also the attitude we need in order to bring peace. We have to find a neutral position, get rid of our baggage, and purify our thinking, because we cannot really establish peace unless we are men and women of peace.

In many countries around the world, children are suffering because of war, conflict, hunger, and disease. They are growing up before their time, taking on roles and responsibilities that are not theirs to take. I once met a young Afghan refugee in Pakistan who told me, “When I grow up, I will have an army. I will avenge the death of my father and brother. I will kill those who dishonored my sister.” He was nine years old.

Because I have been given wealth and perhaps a little bit of a name. I use a little of that to share with others. Because of that, people have recognized the kind of work we are doing in Kosovo and the Balkans, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, and now in Iraq. This last is right in the center of Baghdad, educating girls in computer skills and management skills. Our basic target is to help orphans.
