Dear friends,

Throughout history, human society has suffered from terrorism, violence, and extremism. This suffering has increased in this day and age, causing physical and moral damage to many communities and culminating in an international phenomenon which preoccupies the mind and causes concern to everyone seeking peace, security and stability.

Islam, undoubtedly, has a clear stand on terrorism, violence, and extremism and on their causes as it abhors such phenomena and combats them, calling for cooperation with others to protect mankind from their dangers and consequences. Given its complex nature, terrorism requires scientific investigation which addresses its roots, causes, consequences and the ways to combat it.

In order to clarify the position of Islam on these phenomena and to expound its moderations, goodness and call for dialogue, the idea arose to hold a conference entitled ‘The Stand of Islam on Terrorism, Violence, and Extremism’ at Al-Imam Muhammad Ibn Saud University.


To surf the site of the conference:

Regards,
Electronic publisher.

publisher, Good site.

And not to sound too skeptical, but......
Those that are attending are of the mainstream Islamic faith. They already know what the Kor'an says about violence and murder.

If ya could get some of these radical clerics and Osama Bin laden types there to see that what they teach is against the good book, then you might have a chance  to ebb the tide of murder.

Just a thought

Based on some of the bigoted nonsense that I have heard and read (on this forum and many other places) I can think of more than a few Americans who could benefit from attending this conference.
