We understand that true Islam does not approve of terrorism in any form. Islam respects all individual rights, and states clearly that none of them can be violated, even if doing so would be in the community's interest. Islam orders peace, and the Qur'an demands from each true Muslim that he or she be a symbol of peace and support the maintenance of basic human rights. If a ship is carrying nine criminals and one innocent person, Islam does not allow the ship to be sunk to punish the nine criminals, for doing so would violate the innocent person's rights.
We hope that the world of the new millennium will be a happier, more just, and more compassionate place. For this purpose, inter-faith dialogue should develop as a necessary process, and the followers of all religions should find ways of coming closer together and assist each other. Respecting the universal values of humanity's common heritage may help us to solve many serious problems in a peaceful manner.
