From All Africa (Egypt)

Dialogue sessions between Al-Azhar and the Episcopal Church, began last Wednesday in Lambeth Palace in London and were attended by Grand Imam Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the Sheikh of Al-Azhar al Sharif at the invitation of the Archbishop of Canterbury in the United Kingdom.

Sheikh Mohii El Din Afifi, Ambassador Abd El Rahman Musa and Dr. Nasir Abdel Dayem participated in the meetings and the Most Revd Dr Mouneer Hanna Anis, Archbishop of Jerusalem and the Middle East, and the Revd Mark Poulsen represented the Episcopal Church.

Participants affirmed that the dialogue between Al Azhar and the Episcopal Church has become an urgent need, especially in light of the violence, conflicts and terrorist events happening in the name of religion. The Grand Imam stated that it is unacceptable to judge religions by the terrorist and criminal acts carried out by some of the followers of these religions.
