Saudi King Abdullah calls on all Muslims to fight terrorists

At 85 years, &to=http://english.pravda.ru/diplomatic/2001/08/23/13196.html' target=_blank>Saudi King Abdullah remains a man full of political ambitions. Having only recently succeeded his long-ailing brother, Fahd, as king, Abdullah now is running for the job of leader of the Arab and Islamic world.

Vowing to fight the endemic problem of terrorism that now plagues parts of the Islamic world, and which also shook the kingdom two years ago when homegrown terrorists unleashed a campaign of violence across the country, the Saudi king decided action was a far better policy than inaction.

In fact, Abdullah adopted the project of another king, also named Abdullah. King Abdullah of Jordan launched an initiative earlier this year to unify the various Muslims schools of thought and to ban fatwas, or religious edicts, from being issues by just about anyone for political reasons, reports United Press International.

According to BBC News, the Organisation of the Islamic Conference statement urges decisive action to fight "deviant ideas". The meeting in the holy Muslim city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia called for changes in national laws to criminalise financing and incitement of terrorism.
