Gulf Times reports on the U.S-Islamic World Forum:
The US-Islamic World Forum which concluded yesterday called on the religious leaders to play a significant role by launching diplomatic initiatives among others to end violence against humanity at different levels.
Reading out the policy recommendations at the valedictory session of the three-day conference, Episcopal Anglican Bishop of Washington John Bryson Chane said moral purpose was at the very core of Judaism, Christianity and Islam and it was high time religious heads reaffirmed this reality.
Bishop Chane urged spiritual leaders to confront and end all sorts of religious extremism, including the dominance of one religion over another, or others, and domination of a nation over another.
The Washington-based bishop also appealed to leaders to provide humanitarian assistance for all those whose lives are severely affected by war, poverty, illiteracy, violation of human rights, natural disasters and religious extremism.
