law has consistently condemned terrorism and extremism in
all forms and under all circumstances, and we reiterate this
unequivocal position. Islam strictly condemns religious extremism
and the use of violence against innocent lives.
This statement is declares that domestic violence
has no room in Islam what so ever. First of all, it should
be clear that the institution of the family in Islam is based

wife is not allowed to abuse her husband.
With ongoing violence sapping the spirits of Israelis

Jews and Muslims to join forces with concerned
Christians to transcend this cycle of death and
destruction. Jews and Muslims should be spiritual
allies, not adversaries...
