Rabbis & Imams Meet To Talk Peace

The Sydney Morning Herald reports,

Muslim and Jewish leaders from across the world were set to gather in Brussels last night in an effort to quell rising tensions between Muslims and Jews in Europe.

High on the agenda was a call from a senior Muslim figure in Britain for a policy of “naming and shaming” of extremists.

The “imams and rabbis for peace” conference, which brings together 150 leaders of the two faiths, was set up by the Paris-based peace foundation Hommes de Parole (Men of Their Word).

The chief rabbis of Austria, Brussels, Bulgaria and Denmark were among Jewish religious leaders to take part, while a strong contingent from Israel was to include the chief rabbi of Haifa and prominent members of the High Rabbinical Court of Jerusalem.
