Arab World Has Roots from the Bible; Kivumbi Full Speech During Launch of Moslem Voice Project at Hotel Africana.
25th October 26, 2013
Am grateful for the invitation and the opportunity given to me to make my remarks in respect of the Launch of Moslem Voice Project under the theme of “The role of Muslim community in Nation building: Have they equitably benefited from their efforts.”
My name is Kivumbi Earnest Benjamin, The Founder & President of Heal The Planet Global Organisation; am a young politician ran for MP Kampala Central in the last elections.
My roots with the moslem community is so deep and became deeper when I read in the words of scriptures about the origin of the Arabs. The Bible makes it clearly that when Prophet Ibrahim as you call him fathered a son by the name of Ishmael in Hagar a slave woman, God did not take the life of the baby boy, instead sent an angel in the wilderness created a fountain of water to offer to the thirst lad and a prophecy was made upon him that he would be a great nation thus the emergency of the Arab world. If therefore God allowed and knew the raise and future of the Arab community, its therefore wrong to oppose and fight Muslims.
I have held an exclusive Interview outside there with our Guest of Honor from the American Embassy and posed various questions of US relations with the Arab world and Islam.
The world must distinguish between Terrorism and Islam a religion that advocates for peace and love.
It still lingers and disturbs my mind why you Muslims around the world are still divided. Am surprised every year as you send pilgrims around the world to the Holy Mecca & Medina in Saudi Arabia an Islamic nation which has continued to side with enemies of fellow moslems to kill innocent people in Syria. Turkey and Saudi Arabia are making a grave mistake to fight Assad and kill innocent moslems.
I have greatly challenged US & her allies for attacking and killing Col Mwamah Minyer El-Bin Gadaffi, we have opposed the over throw of President Mohammad Mousse this is not fair.
Your Hon sir I beg to sit down but we must know that there’s a lot our fellow moslems have contributed towards nation building and I a Born Again Christian has had good relations with moslems.
Thanks so much for listening to me.
