CEJI contributes to Jewish-Muslim understanding conference in the European Parliament
A conference to tackle islamophobia and antisemitism in Europe was organised by the FFEU (Foundation for Ethnic Understanding) and hosted by the British MEP Afzal Khan at the European Parliament. The conference with religious leaders and representatives from civil society organisations took place in Brussels on 29 September. The conference was welcomed by CEJI - A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe and featured CEJI Board Member Ronny Naftaniel (pictured, 3rd from left) and our training co-ordinator Stéphanie Lecesne.
"By attacking the Jews and the Muslims, they are attacking our entire society. This is democracy that calls into question," said Rabbi Albert Guigui.
During this press conference, European Muslim members have once again denounced the acts perpetrated by the "Islamic" state recalling that it violates the core values of Islam.
