CIP Greetings for Blessed Days
Selamalejkum warahmetallahuh wabarakatuh!
Bismillah ir-rahman ir-rahim!
The Center for Islamic Pluralism expresses its sincere best wishes to the three global monotheistic communities, which will all celebrate holy days in the current weeks. First, blessings to Jewish believers for the observation of Hanukkah which marks the miraculous liberation of the Hebrew temple from Hellenistic domination; second, to Christians on the celebration of the birth of Jesus, and to all Muslims everywhere, a blessed Eid al-Adha! Bajram sherif mubarek olsun!
In addition, the news report below embodies a great cause for gratitude among Muslims, thanks to the U.S. authorities.
CIP correspondents in the U.S. are notified that the excellent movie "Behind Enemy Lines," with Gene Hackman and Owen Wilson, which truthfully portrays the reality of war in Bosnia-Hercegovina, will be shown on the FX cable channel on Sunday, December 17, and on Cinemax on Saturday, December 23.
