Dear friends,

Assalamo-Alaikum. May Allah bless you and your families with health and contentment.

First of all, I thank you and your active associates for your pioneering efforts to educate the American Muslim community that their voice can be heard by following the proper democratic procedures stated in the American constitution. You are the heroes of our community, and as a member of the community I salute your work and dedication. 

As you all know, I am deeply committed to the cause of Muslim Unity. I feel that the main cause of our misery is 1) we blame others for our problems, 2) we are not united and 3) no Muslim leader is willing to lead us to an effective unity. The world events strengthen my faith daily that the unity among the Muslim countries is the only way that can help ease the suffering of our teeming millions. It is really disgusting to see Russia - the killer of 1.5 millions Afghans - again actively involved in prolonging the civil war in Afghanistan. The Kashmiris and Palestinians, particularly those living in Jerusalem, continue to suffer. All of you know, the future of Jerusalem is the main issue in the volatile Middle East that has the potential to trigger a sequence of events so staggering as to shake the very foundation of our today's civilization. Unfortunately, the OIC (Organization of Islamic Conference ) has not done anything concrete except to organize meetings. However, the newly formed D-8 Group may have taken the first step towards the goal of unity? I believe the Muslim leaders of north America can play a significant role to guide the Muslim world to Unity, but first they have to unite here in America. Here is one proposal on how to start:

1)  Divide the USA into three regions: an eastern area covered by the AMC-Washington;  a western area covered by the AMA and a central area covered by the AMC-Dallas.

2)  AMC, AMA and AMC will each collect the details of at least one major political organization (non-religious) in each major city of their region, including their president's name and address. 
  
3)  A first unity meeting of all the heads of AMC, AMA and AMC should be held in Dallas and can be organized by the AMC-Dallas. The main purpose of the meeting should be to find a framework for Unity, and to select the sponsor and venue of the second unity meeting or conference.

4) This second unity meeting, named as the PRESIDENTS CONFERENCE, should be held at the previously selected location. The main agenda of this meeting should be to present the ideas - agreed in the first unity meeting of AMC, AMA, AMC and CAIR - to the presidents of all the organizations of the major cities in America. This should result in the formulation of an informal body (American Muslim League - AML ?) A chairman of AML should be selected at the Conference from the current heads of the AMC, AMA, AMC and CAIR. The chairman will work on the creation and establishment of a new BODY that will represent and speak for all the Muslims of America. The AMC, AMA, AMC and CAIR will maintain their current status and activities. 
 
5)  Please remember that unless we speak for all the American Muslims, we will remain only  marginally effective in the American politics and our future generations will suffer. Good luck.

Sincerely,



M. Khaliq Qureshi.
