CIP 2015 Appeal for End-of-Year Donations
by Stephen Suleyman Schwartz
As the common year 2015 ends, the Center for Islamic Pluralism (CIP) wishes the best to our friends, but also must appeal for funds to continue our work.
As subscribers to our website will know, CIP is an international network of scholars, clerics, intellectuals and journalists in more than 36 Muslim countries and Muslim-minority communities.
CIP has stood since its foundation against extremism and fanaticism in Islam.
Our reputation has expanded globally and new contacts are made almost daily, from the U.S. to Africa. Numerous articles and interviews by our members are featured in important media platforms and in multiple languages.
CIP leads in global reporting and commentary on:
1. Wahhabism, the ideology of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia and, in its most vicious form, of the so-called "Islamic State;"
2. Human rights violations by the Iranian clerical regime;
3. The international struggle against Female Genital Mutilation (FGM);
4. Radical Islam – a term we are not afraid to use – in general.
We have opposed the penetration in the West of Islamist ideology and shariah-based legal norms, a concept alien to traditional Islam, which prohibits export of Islamic law to non-Muslim countries and calls on Muslims to obey and accept the laws and customs of the countries to which they may migrate.
We offer partnership with believers of goodwill from all religions.
CIP does not and has never received official funds or backing from any government. We depend entirely on private donations for the maintenance of our activities. Our members and correspondents have dedicated ourselves fully, hourly, and daily to defense of moderate Islam and rigorous combat against the distortion of Islam in the service of violent ideologies. With your help, we will continue in our steadfast opposition to all such intrigues and atrocities
