Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
- Chinese proverb















April 2nd/2002

Please respond, firmly but POLITELY to this racist article published in the Edmonton Journal, as soon as possible.

Exerpts:
"Why can't some Muslims agree that killing innocent non-Muslims is unacceptable?"

"Part of the problem lies with Muslim civilization itself"

"But even by the barbaric standards of the Arab Middle East, Yasser Arafat and the Palestinian terrorist organizations that operate freely under his writ have hit new lows."

June 5th Comic - Edmonton Journal
















JUNE 7 APOLOGY

On June 5th CEPPal initiated a national and international call to express our collective disgust with the one-sided and racist comic ran by the Edmonton Journal.

The Journal received over 800 emails and countless phone calls, out of which ONLY ONE contained profane language!! In response, over two days the Journal ran 10 letters to the editor complaining about the comic and a formal apology from the artist himself (see below). Thank you all for your efforts, TOGETHER we can be a force for positive change!
