"Today we learned of the
worst act in history – the extermination of the Jews in Europe, an act
that cannot be explained," said Imam El Hadji Omar Diene, the Secretary
General of the National Association of Imams, who visited the Yad Vashem
Holocaust museum in Jerusalem this week with a delegation of six other
Muslim religious leaders.
"We are all equal
humans, every human, from every race, religion and gender, and no
religious justification can be found to kill and exterminate those who
are different. The tour let us deeply understand Israel and the Jews and
we bless connections between nations," said Imam Diene after the visit.
