On the eve of celebrating the birth of the Prophet the three Sunni Muslim leaders sign a joint statement “for a clear religious information”. The ceremony was held at the Dar el-Fatwa in Beirut. In five points, the declaration rejects confessional fundamentalism and reaffirms the freedom of worship and coexistence.
It appears that Sisi’s address to the scholars of Islam is bearing some fruit.
Reform, recognition of the need to cooperate with Chrisitans and others in a pluralistic society, and recognizing the rise of Salafi as a threat in their own mosques are all absolutely essential in order for any semblance of peaceful coexistence.
