Turkish Prime Minister urges for outlawing anti-Islamism

"At the opening session of the 6th Eurasian Islamic Council, Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan denounced the worldwide propaganda campaign spreading the idea that Islam was in some way a source of terrorism and asserted his commitment to overcome these ideas in all the international meetings he attends.

He called on religious leaders, especialy those in Eurasia to dedicate attention and conduct organized studies on this issue, while declaring that ''problems which the Muslim world has to face can only be solved under the guidance of tradition and reason, a democratic basis and through science, experience and mutual consultation'.' Erdogan recalled the necessity to urge the European Council to adopt a wording in its declaration that accepts anti-Islamism as a crime against humanity, just as anti-Semitism has been accepted and endorsed as a crime against humanity."
