Who will sign
the Declaration of Peaceful Intent?
Christians, Jews, Muslims?
Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists?
Non-adherents to any religion?

It's Easter: the death and rising of Christ. A week after Purim: the saving of the Jews. And here today, the Declaration of Peaceful Intent - to help identify who does and who doesn't have a peaceful intent. And I'm asking for your help.

I've written about this before, in December. Then there were only 2 Declarations, one for Christians and Jews, another for Muslims. Now there are 7 - for Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, and non-adherents of any religion.

Why bother with this? We hear over and over, that the vast majority of Islamics have peaceful intent. And anyway, we also hear, there are as many violent passages in the Old Testament as in the Quran. And - yet another popular claim - all religions are basically the same.

The claim that the mast majority of Islamics have peaceful intent led 3 Australians to create a Declaration for Christians, and an equivalent Declaration for Muslims. That way members of both religions could declare (or not) their peaceful intent, and renounce (or not) any passages which show a less than peaceful intent.

I got involved because one of the Australians contacted me. I thought it was a brilliant idea. I still do.

You can find out about the Declaration:

Included:
- an interview with one of the developers, Harry Richardson (who has written a very popular life of Mohammed);
- a video of the first Muslim faced with the Declaration - watch him NOT sign!!!
- and a video of the first Christian faced with the Declaration.

And then, here is the BIG PROJECT.
http://westindanger.com/declaration-of-peaceful-intent.html
Please join in. Please help.

Help get proof of declared peaceful intent - or of the refusal to declare peaceful intent:
- Download and print whatever Declaration is right for you and those you intend to ask.
- Pass out the Declaration, maybe (if this fits for you) at your church, synagogue, temple, mosque. Ask your friends and family.
- Special interest: the response of Islamics/Muslims.
- Collect signatures, and/or count how many people refuse to sign.
- Send in your results, along with comments about the experience.

Please sent to:
declaration [which is at] WestInDanger.com

A suggestion: pass the Declaration to anyone who says Islamics/Muslims have, in general, peaceful intent. It is their task to prove this, instead of just uttering easy empty words. Let them go to all the Islamics/Muslims they know, as well as to any local mosques or Islamic community centers, and report back to you. If they should be reluctant to do this, ask them why. They should be delighted to prove they are right.

I've learned a lot, putting together the Declarations. I vaguely knew some of the differences between the religions. But I had no idea about, say, the main Sikh religious text. You may also find it interesting to read the different Declarations, each developed with a member of that religion.

Note: there will be a lot more about this project. Maybe we will get some quick results.

And now, as always, all the best to all who care and dare,

Elsa
