PeaceSmiths statement on Congressional Hearings to investigate Muslims

March 9, 2011 at 11:10 pm Leave a comment

PeaceSmiths, Inc. joins other voices in the Long Island peace and justice community who urge Representative Peter King to cancel the proposed Congressional hearings to investigate the Muslim-American community.

We fear these hearings will only further divide our community and undermine our nation’s highest ideals. A commitment to pluralism and respect for diversity are strengths in the struggle against terrorism.
