Vatican, Muslims prepare historic meeting with Pope

From the article:

Muslim representatives and Vatican officials begin talks this week that they hope will lead to an unprecedented Catholic-Islamic meeting.

[Quotation from Yahya Sergio Yahe Pallavicini, vice-president of the Italian Islamic Religious Community: ]

"Terrorism is one thing that has to be discussed," he said. "All religious leaders must renew a message of peace in their faith. Then it will be easier to isolate extremists and avoid the wrong use of religion."
