American Muslims for Bush Announced
LOS ANGELES, California - August 5, 2004 - Muslims from all over the United States announce the creation of Muslims For Bush, a group of Muslim individuals actively campaigning among all Americans, particularly American Muslims, to re-elect President Bush. The group plans to present the Muslim point-of-view on many issues, demonstrating why President Bush is the better candidate, not only for American Muslims, but for all Americans.
In comparing President George W. Bush and Senator John Kerry, the founders of the group, Muhammad Ali Hasan and Seeme Hasan, strongly felt that even on issues like the Patriot Act, Iraq War, and Afghanistan War, President Bush management, leadership, and most importantly, vision, have been above expectations, warranting a 2004 victory.
Muhammad Ali Hasan said, "The Afghanistan War is going well! Given a similar amount of time and patience, I'm confident that only positive results will start showing in Iraq. Any man or woman who vigorously fights for the creation of peace in the Muslim World is a person who has our unquestioned support! After the tragic 9-11 attacks, there was only one politician out there, defending Muslims. Senator Kerry obviously couldn't defend us - he was too busy writing the Patriot Act!"
The group mission statement also address American diversity, prosperity, and education, which according to Hasan, are at all time highs: "The time to create world peace is now! No other country out there is going to do it and no other country can."
Muslims For Bush is also announcing $10,000 in prizes for the best artwork, op-ed pieces, and movies, that can demonstrate why all Americans, especially American Muslims, should re-elect President Bush. The top prize, of $7,000, will go to the 30 to 60 second commercial that best argues for President Bush re-election. The winning commercial may be aired a few weeks before the November 2nd election date.
Muslims For Bush encourages all who are interested, regardless of political affiliation, to visit their website.
Details of the campaign and the movie contest can be found at their site. "I encourage everyone to visit the site," said Hasan. "Getting everyone excited about this year election season is the most important agenda here."
