Seminar :: Muslims Must Combat the Extremist Cancer

Raleigh : 01-09-2016

The Fountain Table in January covered an important topic that is in the agenda of our community: "Muslims Must Combat the Extremist Cancer". The participants discussed about an op-ed published in The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) where the Turkish Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen has called on Muslims around the world to denounce terrorism, defend human rights in their communities and promote education, actions that he sees as the antidote to Muslims' lingering problems. Gülen urged Muslims to confront "totalitarian ideology" at a time when the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) continues its carnage in the Middle East. During the gathering, it was argued that terrorist violence carried out in the name of Islam profoundly affects all Muslims and that Muslims should join efforts to combat what was called a "cancer" by Gulen in the article.
