Muslin Leaders Asked to Join Petition to Stay Kevin Cooper's Execution, End Death Penalty

by Human Rights Alert, NGO Monday, Dec. 20, 2010 at 12:46 PM
jz12345@earthlink.net

The requests followed MPAC's stated mission of "promoting the Islamic values of mercy, justice, peace, human dignity, freedom, and equality for all." The petition called upon Governor Scharzenegger to stay the execution of Kevin Cooper and impose an immediate moratorium on the death penalty in California.

Muslin Leaders are Asked to Join the Petition to Stay the Execution of Kevin Cooper, Impose Moratorium on the Death Penalty in California

Los Angeles, December 19 – Human Rights Alert (NGO) and Joseph Zernik, PhD, have asked Director of Religious Affairs Jihad Turk of The Islamic Center of Southern California, and President Salam Al-Marayati of MPAC (Muslim Public Affairs Center) to join the petition [1] to stay the execution of Kevin Cooper and impose a moratorium on the death penalty in California.

The requests followed MPAC's stated mission of "promoting the Islamic values of mercy, justice, peace, human dignity, freedom, and equality for all."

In its request Human Rights Alert has stated that by endorsing the petition, these Muslim leader would substantially strengthen the petition, and demonstrate the ongoing commitment of the Muslim community to Human and Civil Rights in California and the United States.

Tikkun Magazine’s Rabbi Michael Lerner and UCLA Hillel’s Rabbi Chaim Seidler-Feller have recently endorsed the petition. Rabbi Seidler-Feller also described the petition as “important efforts”.

As detailed in the petition itself, reasonable doubts remained regarding the guilt of Kevin Cooper in the case that led to the death sentencing. Five U.S. Judges have previously expressed their concern regarding the conviction in this case.

Corruption of the California courts has been repeatedly documented for over a decade in official, expert and media reports.

A recent United Nations Human Rights Council report referred to “corruption of the courts and the legal profession in California”.

Under such circumstances the petition called upon Governor Scharzenegger to stay the execution of Kevin Cooper and impose an immediate moratorium on the death penalty in California.
