To: All Community organizations
We are honored to invite you to the commemoration of the Worldwide Day of Jerusalem. The last Friday of Ramadan has been designated by Muslims worldwide as the "Jerusalem Day".
It is urgent that you and your membership support this community event. It will take place on December 14th, 2001, at the Islamic Institute of Knowledge in Dearborn, starting at 7:30 PM.
Events in the Middle East have recently taken center-stage in the US government's policy making as a result of the September 11th tragic attack. The Muslim community in America is under attack, as you already know.
The Islamic Institute Of Knowledge boasts a membership of over two thousand and has been a pillar of the Muslim society in Michigan for the past two decades. It has recently completed the construction of a new school costing over seven million dollars.
Together, we must brave the storm and steer through these difficult times. The Muslim community needs your courage, vision and unwavering commitment to civil rights. It also needs to hear from its leaders and be guided by their wisdom.
We look forward to confirming your attendance at this important community event.
We thank you in advance for your kind consideration of this request.
