UAE calls for fruitful dialogue among civilisations

posted on 29/09/2001: 587 views

The UAE emphasised that any dialogue between civilisations should be based on equality and mutual respect, and seek mainly to build international relations on the grounds of peace, love and integration. 'The dialogue we mean is the one that based on exchange of opinions, experience and facts, recognises others and their right to exist and understands characteristics of each culture without imposing certain cultures on others, and denounces differences and bolsters harmony," the UAE parliamentary section said in an address yesterday at the second conference of parliaments of member states in the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), being held in Rabat. Delivering the UAE address, Ahmed Ali Laha, member of the Federal National Council (FNC), said the Islamic faith in both its spiritual and material aspects gave peace top priority, thus making peace culture a basic pillar of the Muslim community, culture, values, heritage and history.

'Throughout its history, Islamic civilisation has never been in conflict with any other civilisations and the Islamic World has never been party to the international confrontation in the 20th century,' he noted. Islam, he said, took the lead in creating a concerted structure for social, political and economic relations and dealt with human beings on equal footing irrespective of their colour or race.

'There is an urgent need today for dissemination the culture of dialogue and peaceful co-existence between civilisations. Failure of a civilisation to understand another has emptied the dialogue from its essence of honesty, truthfulness, fairness and tolerance,' he said, adding that such a situation had dragged nations and civilisations into a bloody conflict based on racism, supremacy and narrow personal gains. He lambasted Israel for its genocidal and racist crimes against the defenceless Palestinian people. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
