International Peace Conference-2006
In 2006, the U.S. Federation for Middle East Peace organized its 3rd Annual International Peace Conference under the auspices of his Excellency Mister Amer Mousa, Secretary-General for the Arab League Headquarters in Cairo, Egypt, and the International Muslim Youth Organization.
Sally Kader, USFMEP president, was one of the key speakers at the event held September 20-22, 2006 at the Arab League.
Attendees were ministers and members of parliament, governors, diplomats, religious leaders and scholars and Fmr. US Congressman Richard Swett traveling with members of the USFMEP Delegation hailing from Australia, Ohio, New York and Washington D.C.. This Conference is an annual event which the USFMEP has held in Cairo for the past three years. The objective of the conference is to spread the Federation's peace message among the Middle Eastern countries and to celebrate a day of non-violence in all nations.
It is a day of global cease-fire, when all countries and their people are asked to halt hostilities for the entire day, and at noon, local time, to observe a minute of silence for those whose lives were claimed by hostile confrontations.
