Mr President, it is an appalling tragedy when anyone is murdered by terrorist action, but doubly so when among those killed are people who have dedicated their lives to helping others. Such tragedies are, too often, perpetrated by those who have not only lost all sense of humanity but believe themselves to be acting in the name of their religion.
Religious leaders, whether Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu or any other, must make it plain, again and again and again, that no religion justifies the taking of innocent life. It is the great tragedy of our time that, worldwide, we are confronted by those who believe it is.Skall religiösa ledare verkligen behöva tydligagöra att ingen religion berättigar mord på oskyldiga, igen och igen och igen?
