Nice Talk, But Will Action Follow?

Top Muslim president calls for peace jihad at summit

The leader of the world’s most populous Muslim nation called Friday for a jihad of peace to spark an “Islamic Renaissance”, at a summit where leaders struggled to agree reforms to the main international Islamic group.

Indonesia’s President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono called for greater democracy and efforts to improve the plight of Muslims and spread Islamic values, in a speech to the 57-nation Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) summit.

“The possibility of an Islamic Renaissance lies before us,” Yudhoyono told the summit, but first, he added: “We need to get our act together as an organisation of Muslim nations.

“When the Islamic Renaissance comes it will be the natural fruit of a peaceful and constructive ‘jihad’.”

Ah, if only, if only!
