European Muslim Imams Begin Peace Tour to Terrorism-Hit Cities

Muslim imams are marching and praying against terrorism in Europe, condemning extremism committed in the name of religion.

Bringing a message of peace, some 60 Muslim imams based in several countries in Europe have embarked on a bus tour throughout the continent, visiting cities that have been affected by terrorist attacks.

In condemning extremist violence and armed religious fundamentalism, the imams seek to share their message of a peaceful Islam, according to Deutsche Welle.

The bus tour, called the "March of Muslims against Terrorism" commenced in Paris on Saturday with prayers at a site on the Champs-Elysees where a policeman was killed earlier this year by an Islamist militant.

Seeking to change the hearts and minds of young Muslim men and women in Europe who may be headed along a path of violence, the imams are condemning the use of religious beliefs to justify violent actions.

In sending a "message of humanity and brotherhood against terrorism," the imams will pray on Sunday at Berlin's Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, where in December 2016 a Muslim extremist drove a truck into a Christmas market, killing 12 and wounding dozens.

The religious leaders have expressed that their tour is, in part, a prayer for the victims of terrorism and a means to show that Islam, as with all religions and cultures, can co-exist with other beliefs.

Without knowing them, I think I already like these guys, and what they are trying to accomplish! :-)
