Although this is, and should be, a muslim organised march, I would hope that the leaders of many faiths will lend their support and backing to this march.

Moreover, I hope that "all forms of terrorism" does not mean "the terrorism of Bush and Blair i.e. by illegally overthrowing the legitimate leader of Iraq" or "the terrorism of Israel by, erm, existing"


Exactly what I was thinking. I mean, we've seen plenty of "condemnations of terrorism" before, no? Look for specifics, like say a condemnation of the terrorism of Hamas, et. al...and it's "Oh, well that's not terrorism..."

Extremely good news if it says 'Not In My Name' to terrorism carried out in the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate. Really would cut the ground from under those who try and equate Islam with atrocity.

On the other hand, 'all forms of terrorism' could mean Bush/Blair/Israel ... in which case it could reinforce negative opinions.

Yep, we shouldn't get too excited: but it is something.


I plan to provide the musical support
