On this Thanksgiving holiday, Quilliam International takes a moment to share to our friends a message of appreciation and thankfulness. On behalf of all of our staff, Quilliam is thankful for our families, friends and supporters who remain steadfast against the fight against extremism in all its forms and who seek to create healthy and safe communities worldwide.
Our work and efforts are more important than ever before. As our offices in America celebrate this American holiday, our London, HQ’s and allies around the world share in the common vision of solidarity of pluralism.
Executive Director Quilliam US, Muhammad Fraser-Rahim, Ph.D. said:
“As the Executive Director in America, I wish my fellow American and all human beings a special and happy Thanksgiving. We continue to remain vigilant in the face of extreme violence. On this day, we pause to reflect on those values which are the most important for all of humanity. We resolve to carry forward a shared vision of peace and mutual understanding for the benefit of all.”
David Toube, Director of Policy, UK said:
“The strongest force in the world is the bonds of affection between families and friends. It is easy to forget that this is so, in times of intense political polarization. Ultimately, love is the greatest weapon in the battle against extremism. It is the one human quality that will always diffuse conflict.”
