Dear Saleem and Leo,

Saleem, I would be pleased to join you in accomplishing these tasks. Do you 
think it will be practical to do everything? Alternatively, if you and your 
organization can do part, please let Leo and I know so we can plan on 

Personally, I am eager to see GHA renew its activities in the interfaith 
movement. It would be wonderful if we could join you as co-sponsors.

I urge you to visit out "Interfaith" app on play.google.com and 

Yours in pursuit of harmony and peace,

>Before offer you the GHA positive suggestions for your international 
>interfaith conference (IIC), please, let me one very important remark. If you 
>are reading the GHA projects, you may have noticed that the GHA appreciates 
>Interfaith movement in two inseparable dimensions: peace and harmony, linking 
>them together as: peace from harmony and for harmony. These timeless and 
>universal values, which humanity and religions could not realize until now, is 
>the essence and meaning of the Interfaith movement on the GHA credo. 
>The world religions and their interfaith movement will only be justified as 
>tools and the ways to implement peace from harmony and for harmony. Beyond 
>these values ​​it is meaningless by and large. Unfortunately, GHA not see your 
>support of our major peacebuilding projects: Global Peace Science and 
>Monitoring Peace and War. We question involuntarily arises: Who is All 
>Believers Network (ABN)? Peacekeepers or militarists? If you are peacekeepers 
>and members of the GHA (You even have a Vice-President of GHA -USA that you 
>somehow forgot), then why are you silent and we do not see your support for 
>the GHA peacebuilding projects? 
>We say this that you understand that the GHA support of your Conference 
>possible only in one case: if you will clear articulate the values ​​of peace 
>from harmony, interfaith harmony for peace and global peace science, and your 
>conference will schedule a public discussion (of course, along with criticism)
