Muslim, Christian, Jewish leaders at Saudi-backed conference condemn jihadist violence

Senior Muslim, Christian and Jewish leaders united to condemn violence by jihadi militants at a Saudi-backed conference on Wednesday.

“Some organizations that are affiliated with Islam are perpetrating some actions in the name of jihad. This is not Islam at all,”said Abdullah bin Abdulmuhsen Al Turki, secretary-general of the Muslim World League.

Nizar bin Obaid Madani, Saudi minister of state for foreign affairs, decried the emergence of factions in the Middle East “that use terrorism and violence in the name of religion.”

The conference in Vienna was organized by the King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz International Center for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue (KAICIID), which is sponsored by Saudi Arabia.https://m.facebook.com/panafricanliberationmovement?_e_pi_=7%2CPAGE_ID10%2C2241236943
