Westbury, the “Community For All Seasons,” is proud of the accommodations it has reached for the expansion of the Islamic Center of Long Island. That was great leadership in action. Our diverse community has blended races, cultures and religions together in what is a model for others to follow.
Just as Pope Benedict in his latest book has forgiven the Jewish people for the death of Christ, our nation has never blamed all of Islam for 9/11. Instead, forgiveness and understanding have given us a wider path to a new beginning that can truly lead to world peace and harmony.
The revolutions in the Middle East, especially those that are peaceful, have already led us to a greater world democracy, freedom and equality. There may be a future with a President of the World perhaps with a Constitution much like our own. The actions in our community in Westbury show us that world unification in addition to the United Nations is a promising possibility. Faith in and education of the people of the world can take us there.
