Antwerpen. Leaders of the world religions take the initiative for a summit, organised by the Community of Sant’Egidio. Meanwhile a cease-fire is being worked out in Ukraine and the world is wondering how to stop the IS army and avoid the massacre of religious and ethnic groups among the eldest in the world in the Ninive plain.
300 leaders of the world religions come together from September 7th til 9th at the International Meeting People and Religions: Peace is the Future.

Among the participants of the three-day meeting: the Grand mufti of Egypt Shawki Ibrahim Abdel-Karim, the Syrian-orthodox patriarch of Antiochia Ignatius Aphrem II, the Minister of Religious Affairs of Kurdistan Kamal Muslim, the Patriarch of Babylon of the Chaldeans Sako, cardinals, bishops and religious leaders from over 60 countries, witnesses of the persecution against the yazidi, member of the Iraqi Parliament Vian Dakheel, and European personalities such as Zygmunt Bauman, Herman Van Rompuy, president of the European Council, and Andrea Riccardi, founder of the Community of Sant’Egidio and Unesco Peace Prize winner.

The objective is to insulate fundamentalism and to establish an international alliance of world religions in order to diminish the attraction of terroristic organisations that invoke religious scriptures and threaten the peaceful cohabitation of entire populations and religious traditions.
