← Muslim peace conference condemns terrorism

Good news this may be, but 12,000 Muslims here cannot claim to represent the hundreds of millions residing in the Middle East. It simply proves that some religious people can embrace reason.

Furthermore, did they denounce homophobia? Did they denounce Sharia courts? Did they accept that anyone has the right to criticise their religion, through cartoons or otherwise? Did they accept that women have the right to wear what they choose?

If they did then fair play to them. If not then this conference serves only as a hollow attempt at PR.
