Hundreds of millions of peace and God-loving families and individuals in the Muslim mainland either lost their freedom and/or live cornered between repressive authoritarian regimes, militant religious organizations, and foreign invaders. The "Great Repression" is the root cause of violence which hurts tens of millions of peace-loving civilians in the Muslim mainland. The violence now is trickling into Western nations and no one sees light at the end of the tunnel. Faith leaders in the USA and Europe, however, are in a unique position to take initiative, show goodwill, help humanity, and play a major role in inspiring God’s peace on earth. This is opportunity knocking: "The harvest is great, but the workers are few” (Luke10:2). Will you be one of them?
To assist faith leaders in getting off to the right start, “Dear Pastors and Priests" draws a vision of a new future. The vision is based on a new grassroots, faith-leader-lead, world peace initiative that builds on the shared beliefs, virtues, and values of the three main Abrahamic faiths. The "Judeo-Christian-Islamic Covenant (JCIC)” peace initiative is consistent with the beliefs of most Jews, Christians, and Muslims, conservative and liberal alike. The objective is to overcome the continuing threat of radicalization and terrorism and to end the victimization of the innocent in the name of God or country—in both the Western and Muslim worlds. Finally, the book outlines an easy-to-follow personal plan of action to help faith leaders engage and realize the peace for which they pray.
