Peres, Paris mayor and interfaith leaders denounce terrorism

Former president Shimon Peres met with the mayor of Paris and leaders of French religious communities to make an interfaith denouncement of terrorism.

“We gathered here today Jews, Muslims and Christians to say loud and clear – that we must fight terror, we must go against those preachers who are using God’s name in vain to promote bloodshed and incitement,” Peres says, according to a statement released by his office. “There is no God in the heavens that permits terrorism, there is no God willing to murder the innocent – babies, children, here in Europe, in the Middle East or the rest of the world.”

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo calls on “rabbis, church leaders and imams to sit together, fight against the hatred and work towards advancing peace.”

“We must be accessible to the youth of Paris and together fight against violence and terror,” she says.
