The Global Peace Walk Project '95:

One thousand four hundred and fifteen (1415) years ago, Prophet Muhammad
(peace be upon him) delivered the message of the Oneness and worship of Allah
(God) and the cardinal principles of Peace, Justice, Unity, and Equality of
humanity. Islam is a religion of and propagates peace. The greeting of Muslims
is "Salaam" (peace)

The Muslims in Columbia are, therefore, happy to know that the United Nations'
50th Anniversary "GLOBAL PEACE WALK '95" strives to foster peaceful co-
existence among the peoples of the world.

As you march towards San Francisco, we want you to remember the Islamic
greetings of "PEACE" and hope that we, all, are successful in attaining peace in
the world.

Good luck.
