>> Dear GHA members, interfaith friends,
>> An excellent idea matured within the GHA: the idea UN Decade of Interfaith 
>> Harmonious Education for 2014-2024, which requires a logical and 
>> organizational completion. 
>> The first and most important. Implementation of this idea will significantly 
>> enhance the harmonizing social mission of States, the UN members, and 
>> religions and their churches in the life of society through the development 
>> of global harmonious interfaith education. The issue of enhancing the social 
>> role of the state and religion through harmonious education is very 
>> important for both of them in our time of burgeoning social and religious 
>> conflicts in the world. The harmonizing social mission of state and religion 
>> is very relevant and for the population, which faces growing global 
>> challenges demanding from them adequate responses in a non-violent way of 
>> global harmonious interfaith education, rather than on a way of global 
>> militarization and violent solutions.
>> Second. The need for global interfaith harmonious education has reached a 
>> new level to meet the challenges of globalization in the 21st century. The 
>> existing system of national, common and elite education does not respond to 
>> the global challenges of our time and fails to prepare the young generations 
>> for non-violent harmonious solutions to any social problems. This is a key 
>> flaw of modern education that can be overcome only in harmonization as in 
>> interfaith perspective, and through harmonization of science and religion.
>> These two key global motives determine the relevance and necessity of the UN 
>> Decade of Interfaith Harmonious Education for the years 2014-2024, which 
>> will give a good start and order for the most favorable global trends of 
>> spiritual and educational nature. The common good of this UN Decade is so 
>> obvious that it requires no special logical proofs.
>> Organizing to complete this idea may proceed from its initiation within the 
>> UN by any organizations involved in the UN one way or another. This can be 
>> the Interfaith Coalition of Partnership with the UN, or the head of any 
>> state who can offer this idea in the UN General Session. Obviously, the most 
>> logical initiator of this idea may be Jordan's King Abdullah II as the 
>> initiator of the World Interfaith Harmony Week in the UN, 2010. In this 
>> regard, we propose to add the GHA offers to Jordan's King in the GHA Project 
>> of Interfaith Harmony as a new, ninth point with the following content: 
>> Initiate in the UN, as a development of initiative 2010, a proposal of the 
>> UN Decade of Interfaith Harmonious Education for 2014-2024, which will 
>> strengthen a harmonizing mission of state and religion in global society in 
>> a non-violent peacemaking way of qualitative renewal of the education system 
>> in the world, especially in the direction of interfaith harmony instead of 
>> militarization.
>> We offer within three days, until March 5, inclusively, to discuss this 
>> proposal and include it in the GHA Interfaith Harmony Project, in section 9: 
>> www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=541. 
>> We understand that the common benefit of this proposal is so obvious that it 
>> requires no special discussion. There may be a difference only in the 
>> formulations of this proposal. Therefore, in this case, we will take your 
>> silence as a sign of consent and approval of this proposal and welcome all 
>> of its amendments to improve it. Thank you for supporting this proposal. 
>> Best harmony wishes,
>> Dr. Leo Semashko, GHA President
