Invitation to a Panel Discussion



With top level representatives of the three Abrahamic Religions in Germany, Wednesday, April 6, 2005, 7 p.m., at the Schweisfurth-Foundation in Munich, Nymphenburg Castle.


The topic of the evening:


A Vision for Peace in the Middle East – and Worldwide:

Peace of the Religions at the Temple Mount


In all peace negotiations so far, one spot has painstakingly been avoided: the Temple Mount. All parties involved seem to be mesmerized by the problem. The following proposal aims at freeing all parties from such a fixation and allows an image of a successful reconciliation to take effect: It is the image of a common sanctuary of the three Abrahamitic religions at the tabooed spot – above the top of the mount and spiritually including the old temples of Israel and the Dome of the Rock.

That way all parties can win, no one needs to lose: The Muslims will receive the long hoped for universal recognition of the spirit of Islam’s dignity and honor, the Jews will get – as a symbol of having the right to be in this land – a new temple including the spiritual permission to step inside, and the Christians, too, will get what they hope for: a deeply humane solution.
