Muslim leaders warn of 'crisis'

Muslim leaders warn of 'crisis'

Leaders of 57 Muslim countries have ended their summit with a warning that the Islamic world is in crisis because of the threat posed by terrorism.

The Organisation of the Islamic Conference statement urges decisive action to fight "deviant ideas".

The meeting in the holy Muslim city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia called for changes in national laws to criminalise financing and incitement of terrorism.

It also called for new school curriculums to purge extremist ideas.

The declaration also said that fatwas, or Islamic religious edicts, must only be issued by those who are authorised to do so.

A BBC analyst says there are doubts over whether the organisation can fulfil its aims, as its meetings are all too often an occasion for stale rhetoric. Story from BBC NEWS:

KEYWORDS: globaljihad; islam; muslim; terrorism
This may be the first time I’ve ever seen the Muslim community come-out against terrorism, or "deviant ideas" as they call it, since the Egyptians were fighting their "raticals" some 20 or 30 years ago. Is it possible that these backward, darkage countries are finally figuring it out?

Would this be happening if the United States didn't have the courage to stand up almost completely alone against religious terrorism?

...that's a rhetorical question.

I think I see a little sweat forming on the brow of some middle east officials finally.

The chickens are coming home to roost and they damn well know it now.

"They dont know Christ. It will never end."

Well if your a Christian then you know your statement above about it never ending is incorrect.

It all depends on what your definition of is is. Terrorism/Terrorist is probably a synonym of American Zionist pig!

Buddhists seem to be getting along fairly well with everyone.

Of copurse it's a crisis now that the cat is out of the bag and most of the world can see what islam is all about--and it ain't the religion of peace.

I'm sure that this only applies to Moose-Slimes killing other Moose-Slimes. No where in the Koran does it say that killing us is wrong so let's not get too excited.

According to Howard Dean and Murtha, it's time to cut and run.

If they want to fight "deviant ideas" does this mean they are ready to abolish Islam???

Yes, slaughtering "infidels" falls under the categories of "resistance" and "jihad" or "upholding the faith" according to the cult of death. They only get worked about about "terrorism" when Zarqawi blows up fellow Muslims - if only he'd stick to massacres of Christians, Jews, etc. he'd be much beloved in the Muslim world.

I'll bet it did. Mecca is inhabited and run by Wahhabis.

Probably not. Just more "meetings all too often an occasion for stale rhetoric."

Otherwise, they would not be hosting this stark raving lunatic Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at Mecca like if he was even a halfway sane tyrannical thug.

I think samadams2000 means it will never end in this Age, i.e. before the Second Coming. That is especially true if they are strict adherents to what their books say, especially regarding the Last Hour (hadiths). The exact scenario that God Himself comes to summarily defeat in Zechariah 14 (parallel to Revelation 19).

Hit targets in Iran and Syria, piecemeal, until the terrorism in Iraq stops. If it won't, destroy the entire political infrastructure of both countries.

Any other so-called Arab countries want to ride along?
