A Call For Interfaith Dialogue

Earlier this week, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, called for an interfaith dialogue between Muslims, Christians and Jews. He added some interesting points:

"The idea is to ask representatives of all monotheistic religions to sit together with their brothers in faith and sincerity to all religions as we all believe in the same God."

"There is a lack of ethics, loyalty and sincerity for our religions and humanity."

He's already met with Pope Benedict XVI, the first Saudi monarch to do so. This call for a conference opens the door to peace, or at least a possible end to Muslim fanatics using the words of the Koran to justify their actions.

The reality is that radicals will always twist the Qur’an to support their views and try to bring about a world caliphate.

This is why peace won't work...

Unless you can temper this kind of hatred, it'll never work. This type of thing poisons the minds of the young and until a generation chooses to change, it will always be with us.

Alas, sad but true. But perhaps the Saudi monarch can get the radicals to turn it down a notch? That, at least, would be something.
