Bx memorial - 225th st - w kngsbrdg rd and heath av - by fred 10-13-12 -Imam Omar Suleiman, a native of New Orleans, social justice activist and founder of non-profit MUHSEN, and currently imam of Valley Ranch Islamic Center of Dallas, spoke at the Dallas funeral for police officers shot last Thursday: “Are we going to be a pluralistic, tolerant, accepting nation that is guided by a unifying principle that everyone has the right to live with the same level of dignity, and be treated equally by the law, and be free to worship in a way that they please, and live their lives in the way that they please?” he asks. “Are we going to be united by that principal?”

“I went out there to support a cause that is near and dear to my heart. I think there’s no doubt that black lives have not mattered, or have not been treated with the same dignity as other lives, for a very long time,” says Suleiman.  (http://www.pri.org/stories/2016-07-13/imam-louisiana-survived-dallas-shooting-here-are-his-thoughts-race-america)
