Islamic Society to hold annual event on Sept. 11
Sep. 9, 2011
It's sheer coincidence the Fox Valley Islamic Society's 12th annual Interfaith Gathering is happening on the anniversary of Sept. 11.
But the event's theme — coming together as people of faith against all forms of extremism — is as pertinent a discussion point today as it was 10 years ago.
"It was a perfect coincidence," said the Rev. Joel Schlachtenhaufen, a retired Lutheran pastor who will lead table discussions with the Rev. Richard Allen, a retired Catholic priest. "(The event) normally is in the summer, but this year it got pushed back and pushed back … into the exact right place."

A word from allah, via its false prophet:
"O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people." (Sura 5:51)
