Three Cheers for These Good Muslim Citizens!


Lest we forget…it’s too easy to focus on the backward bigots like the FPI, though we need to do so, and  often – they’re a menace to Indonesia and their counter-parts in other countries are bad news wherever they rear their heads.

But have you heard about Muslims For Life?

Thanks to the Examiner, these excellent Americans came to my attention last week, and I am delighted to offer them as an example of how a responsible religious minority earns a respected place in Western societies.

Muslims for Life
  • To honor the victims of 9/11 on its 11th anniversary, Ahmadiyah Muslim Community, USA, has launched the second annual Muslims for Life campaign (http://www.muslimsforlife.org) nationwide to collect 11,000 units of blood and help save as many as 33,000 lives to reiterate the message that Islam values the sanctity of life. The blood drives will be held this year at all our mosques and prayer centers across the nation and in collaboration with other community organizations.

In 2011, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA launched this campaign to honor the victims of 9/11 on its 10th anniversary. Nationwide, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA was able to collect a total of 11,803 pints of blood and thus exceed our goal.

Three cheers for the Ahmadis!

Good citizens in America as they are here! Yet how shamefully they’re treated here.
