On May 5, 2003 the Tucson Citizen reported that "the interfaith vigil for peace at the Islamic Center of Tucson [AZ] continues - even after President Bush on Friday announced an end to major combat operations in Iraq... The war in Iraq may end, but the round-the-clock Interfaith Vigil to Stop Violence will not end until there is peace in the Middle East, said Moji Agha, the founder of the Universal Coalition for Interfaith and Intercultural Knowledge and Action... 'The war is over, and yet the violence continues,' he said yesterday. 'If the violence stops, please let me know. We'll be more than happy to stop' the vigil."
