American faith leaders - representing Christians, Jews and Muslim - will reach out to the people of Iraq with a television ad (which I have endorsed) supporting their desires for justice in the prison abuse scandal. From FaithfulAmerica.org:
The torture scandal continues to grow, and with it the outrage of the Arab world. As our leaders continue to blame a few rogue soldiers, a cycle of mutual suspicion and dehumanization between the Arab world and the United States deepens.
We need to send a message directly from us, the people of the United States, to the people of Iraq and the Arab world telling them that, as Americans, we stand shoulder-to-shoulder with them in demanding justice for these sinful abuses committed in our name.
To do this, we’ve filmed a television ad with Christian, Jewish and Muslim faith leaders to be broadcast on Arabic-language television in the Middle East. You can view the ad using the link below. If you feel the message expresses what is in your heart, let the world know by endorsing the ad. You can even donate to help put it on the air.
As the number of endorsers grows, we will add that figure to the end of the ad. The more people who endorse the message, the more effective it will be. Please send this e-mail to anyone you think might want to get involved.
Please watch the ad, endorse it if you are a person of faith, and send money if you can.
