UNITED NATIONS, September 28. /TASS/. Fighting against terrorism can be compared with the third world war and should be responded "with equal intensity", Jordan’s King Abdullah II Ibn Al Hussein told the 70th session of UN General Assembly on Monday in New York.
"That means global collective action on all fronts," he said. "But make no mistake; the more important war is the one we wage on the battlegrounds of the heart, soul and mind. And in this fight, all countries, all people, must come together."
"Today’s global fight is not between peoples, communities or religions," the Jordanian King said. "It is between all moderates, of all faiths, against all extremists, in all religions. Leaders of every country, every belief, every neighborhood, need to take a clear and public stand against intolerance of any kind. This includes respecting all places where God is worshipped, whether mosque, church, synagogue or temple," he explained.
The Jordanian monarch stressed the importance of countering attempts to propagate information of extremist nature. "We must not let our screens, airwaves, broadband and social media be monopolized by those who pose the greatest danger to our world. We too must populate our media, and more important, the minds of our young people, with the purity and power of moderation," he said.
King Abdullah also noted the importance of global initiatives for tolerance and dialogue. "This has been reflected in the Amman Message, and A Common Word, and, four years ago, we helped create the UN’s Global Interfaith Harmony Week, an annual event to focus all people, especially young people, on the essentials of tolerance and co
existence," he reminded.
