Religiøse ledere sammen for fred.

Dette innlegget kan nok være tung å lese, men det er viktig å merke seg, at de religiøse på begge sider av konflikten, står sammen for fred.

Jeg fikk sendt denne fra min israelske husvert, som igjen oversatte denne artikkelen fra israelsk media..

September 2013, the Vatican. The ceremony of signing the peace treaty. On the porch, along side his holiness the pope, stand together the head Sepharadic rabi, the head Ashkenazi rabi, the person in charge of the Wakf in Jerusalem and the Imam of Al-Azhar University (in Cairo). The photographers and the reporters that gathered together on the White House grass 20 years earlier, now have to be a part of the crowd in front of the porch, and instead of Champaign they drink black coffee.

This vision is not completely hallucinated in the eyes of the Palestinian minister, Sheik Talal Sider from Hebron. The Sider family is a very religious family. Sider himself is very close to Sheik Ahmed Yasin, and until not long ago was one of the Hamas leaders. Since the Oslo agreements he’s running from one meeting to another with other Imams and with Jewish rabies, in an attempt to drug the religious leadership from both sides into what used to be the peace process. Among the rabies that he meets regularly are settlers such as Rabi Shlomo Riskin from Efrat and Rabi Menachem Fruman from Tkoa. Among the Sheiks that arrive these meetings is Sheik Ahmed Tamimi who’s in charge of the Sharaic courts in the Palestinian authority. The peace process failed but Sider and his friends not only that didn’t get desperate, they actually think that this makes their claim even stronger: Only the religious people will succeed where the politicians failed. [….] “The politicians should move aside. They will not manage to make peace. After the religious people will take this issue in their hands, everything will be good” he promises. “[Israelis] would visit freely in Hebron [and Palestinians] would visit Tel-Aviv and Israelis would walk in Tel-Aviv without getting exploded if only the politicians will stop running the business and will let us do it. If we, the religious people, will make peace among us, there will be no more terror attacks or anything”.

Q.: How will this happen? Are you talking in your meetings about specific things? Do you sit with maps? A.: “You might be surprised but we do have maps and we do talk about everything. We have plans also for the refugees and for the settlements, and about the water and about all the other issues. You must understand, according to what the Koran says, all religious people in the world are relatives. We are closer than those who are not religious. The problem is not with the religion. In the Koran it is written: It’s better to let the whole holy Kaaba to ruin, than to let one hair fall of the head of a little “child.” The trouble is that someone here explains the Koran wrongly.” Q.: Who? A.: The politicians. Those who go to war, those who chase after respect, are the politicians. The wars are not only between Jews and Muslims, but also and mainly between Jews and Jews and between Muslims and Muslims. We, the religious people, can get along between ourselves, because we’re very much alike. But who ever don’t like the religious people finds it hard with us. He finds it hard in the family; he finds it hard in life. […] The politicians don’t like people with Kipa and beard. It doesn’t matter if this religious man is Muslim or Jewish, the non-religious don’t like us. That’s why they won’t let us run the talks. Q.: And this is the reason why there’s no peace? A.: Only because of that. I visited the house of your chief rabi, rabi Bakshi-Doron. We met several times, reached a lot of agreements together. But people don’t like to hear about an agreement between the chief rabi and a sheik. They like to hear that an agreement has been achieved between Peres and Abu-Mazen, between Beylin and Abu-Mazen. But nobody would be able to achieve peace without the religious people. If the religious people from both sides won’t work together, there will be no peace. Look how Peres, every time he speaks to the Palestinians, the religious parties in the Knesset give a hell of a time to Sharon. Q.: So the religious people want peace or don’t want peace? A.: They want peace very much, but they want to be the ones to do it, not the politicians. […]

In Fact, meetings between religious people from different religions became a hysteric hit in the last decade. Almost every week a delegation of Cadies is meeting a delegation of priests and a delegation of rabies in the lobby of some luxurious hotel, mostly in Europe and USA. “I attend maybe 20% of the inter-religious meetings that take place in the world and spend few tens of days each year” says rabi David Rozen, who’s in charge of the inter-religious meetings among the USA Jews. “Most of the public is not even aware of this activity, which take place in more than 60 countries”. Rozen, who lives in Jerusalem, met already many Cadies and Imams from Saudi-Arabia, Iran, Libya, and Syria and is talking about warm hugs and deep talks between senior rabies from Israel and Sheiks from countries that their sportsmen would never dare shake the hands of Israeli sportsmen. For example, rabi Lao (Israel’s chief Ashkenazi rabi) arrive the inter-religious summit that took place in Davos last year, and had a warm meeting with sheik Abdalla Nasif , who’s one of the advisers of the Saudi king. “The religious people have some kind of an immunity” says Rozen. “The sheiks, that would not even think of taking to an Israeli politician, can afford meeting with rabies without being declared traitors”.

The European Union, the Vatican, the White House, the world economical forums and a numberless of private donators and organizations donate milliards of dollars in order to enable rabies and cadies to arrive from one meeting to another, hoping that they will bring the political fruits. But in order not to destroy the good atmosphere, most of the meetings abroad are ending with general statements for the peace and against violence, without talking politics. “In some of the meetings the atmosphere was fantastic as long as we didn’t get into details,” says rabi Bakshi-Doron. “The moment that we touch the holy places, the meeting usually explodes. About four or five years ago I went to a meeting in London with three more rabies and with some respected sheiks. One of our rabies started to talk about Jerusalem. One of the sheiks said that we don’t have anything to do with Jerusalem and that everything which is written in our history about first temple and second temple are inventions. The rabi told him very politely that there’s a problem with his theory, because the Islam cannot exist without the Jewish and the Christian stories. That moment the meeting exploded. They said that they would never speak to this rabi and never showed up again.”

In the beginning of the year took place in Alexandria the first international meeting of the flying wise men, which discussed openly the conflict in the Middle East. The meeting, taking place under the promising title ‘the summit of the three religions’ was the idea of the archbishop of Canterbury in Britain, a regular participant in those meetings which decided to make them the crane to bring the redemption. The archbishop sent his ‘minister of foreign affairs’ the canon Andrew White, which arranged the meeting with rabi Melchior and with coordination with president Mubarac. Choosing Egypt was made, among others, to ensure the participation of sheik Hasan Tantawi, which in his role as the head Imam of Al-Azhar University, he’s the head authority of the Muslim Shara in the world. In addition participated in this summit rabi Bakshi-Doron, rabi Fruman, rabi Yitzak Ralbag, sheik Sider, sheik Tamimi, the Greek-Latin Patriarch Mishel Sabach, the head of the Anglican church George Kari and heads of various churches from Israel and Arab countries, including Syria and Lebanon. At the end of the meeting all participants were supposed to sign a ‘historical declaration’ that would announce that the conflict is not of a religious nature will call for the renewal of the negotiation and will condemn the terror attacks. The summit received warm greetings from leaders all over the world. […] Tantawi’s signature on such a declaration has a status of Fatawa, and there were some people that hoped that it would make the Jihad and the Hamas activists to think twice before the next terror attack. At the end of the meeting all the participants called for all blood shed to be stopped, including the terror attacks. […] In Nigeria, which also suffers from a terrible violence between Muslims and Christians, the parliament decided to adopt the summit’s decisions and turn them into a state law. The summit received also the blessing of the Pope, and in April, Tantawi and Melchior arrived the Vatican and had there another small summit, in which they repeated the same declarations. During the Alexandria summit, activists of the “Muslim Brothers” gave away brochures calling sheik Tantawi and the rest of the Imams to leave the summit, fearing that the decisions might have practical impact of some sort. Eventually, Tantawi indeed did not sign the paper. The participants passed the paper among them and thought that everybody signed. Only later, when White took the signed paper to Britain, he discovered that Tantawi’s signature is missing. When asked about it later on, Tantawi said that he did not sign since the negotiations are with the Palestinians and as an Egyptian he’s not a side in the conflict. But right after the summit Tantawi took the sting out of the paper declaring that terror attacks are not allowed, unless done in a war against occupation. Later on sheik Tamimi published a similar declaration. […] “I was not surprised that they retreated from their declarations”, says today rabi Bakshi-Doron. “In the night before the summit I sat together with Sider and Tamimi for three hours. Tamimi told me honestly: ‘of course that the terror attacks are against the Islam, but what do you want, that I would be assassinated’?” […]

Except from the summit expected in London, the Alexandria summit participants’ are planning to have more of these summits in other Arab countries, and mainly are looking for a way to get to Saudi-Arabia
