Historically, when Muslims say they want "interfaith dialogue," they really mean "Muslim indoctrination." And this conference was no exception.
Over the past three days, the Muslim World League held another conference in Jeddah. From the Saudi Gazette:
The Kingdom is exerting all efforts to unite Muslims of the world to jointly face various challenges and attempts to defame Islam, Prince Khaled Al-Faisal, Emir of Makkah Region, said here on Sunday.You mean, the "interfaith dialogue" was not meant for Muslims to learn about other faiths? Shocking!
Presiding over the 9th Makkah Conference on behalf of King Abdullah, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, Prince Khaled said it was essential to introduce the correct teachings of Islam to non-Muslims and Muslims living in non-Muslim countries.
The theme of the conference under the aegis of the Muslim World League is ‘Introducing Islam to non-Muslim countries in reality and expectation.”
It has become essential to introduce Islam to non-Muslim countries and present them the true picture of Islam, he said. The recent interfaith dialogue meeting at United Nations at the initiative of King Abdullah is a proof of the Kingdom’s keenness to serve Islam, the Emir said.
And, of course, at the end of the conference, in the final statement:
It said Muslim countries must introduce Islam to non-Muslim countries as part of efforts to improve foreign relations.
“They should also make use of their good relations with Western countries to enact laws preventing the denigration of Islam and Muslim personalities,” said a final communiqué issued after the conference.
