German chancellor renews calls for Islamic religious authorities to speak ‘clear words on the demarcation of peaceful Islam and terrorism in the name of Islam’
Islam itself is not the source of terrorism and it is critical to include Muslim countries in the fight against Islamist terror, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said.
Ms Merkel, who has been critical of the US ban on travel from seven Muslim-majority countries, made her remarks at the annual Munich Security Conference, with US Vice President Mike Pence in the audience.
The Chancellor said European countries could not fight Islamist terror alone and urged predominantly-Muslim countries to join the fight.
“I think, those countries, first and foremost have to give a contribution. Because only in this way we would be able to convince people that it is not Islam that is the source of terrorism. But a falsely understood Islam,” she said.
Ms Merkel also renewed calls for Islamic religious authorities to speak “clear words on the demarcation of peaceful Islam and terrorism in the name of Islam”.
