CIC 2006 Award for Lifelong Community Service Award - Dr Ismail Zayid, Halifax
A Note of Thanks
Dr ISMAIL ZAYID*
Dear Brothers and Sisters and Friends,
In this brief note, I wish first to apologize for missing this great function. I had to be in Amman, Jordan, to be with members of my family, who have been scattered across the globe since the Zionist destruction of our village, Beit Nuba, in June 1967. We are to be gathered to celebrate Eid Al-Fitr, in Amman.
Above all, I wish to thank the Canadian Islamic Congress and express my acceptance with all humility this very generous and highly esteemed award, that you were gracious to honour me with.
This, my friends, I believe is the call upon all of us to stand and maintain our struggle to defend and guard our land, people and faith.
Let us stand together and continue the struggle and thus justice will prevail and we shall overcome.
