This program is a multi-faceted serious of events that stretches across varied institutions and segments of society. Born from intellectual analysis of why radical extremism was so deeply rooted in areas of global conflict, Voices of Moderate Islam (VoMI) was first initiated in Afghanistan in 2010. This program brought 40 Afghan local leaders who were under the influence of Taliban radical extremism to Amman, Jordan for religious discussions and than to the Umrah in Mecca. The principles of VoMI were validated as the Cycle of Failure was reversed in two Afghan provinces. The VoMI Program is nested with the efforts established with The Amman Message. Issued in 2005 by H.M. King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein in Amman, Jordan. The Amman Message sought to declare what Islam is and what it is not, and what actions represent it and what actions do not. Its goal was to clarify to the modern world the true nature of Islam and the nature of true Islam. This multi-faceted program has continued to grow and has included 50 separate events in Jordan, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Morocco, and the United States. VoMI continues to achieve its goal of educating people of many faiths on the values and beliefs of Traditionalist Islam.
