London (PRWEB) February 25, 2007
Pave the Way Foundation (PTWF) founder and President Gary L. Krupp was invited to address 100 Ambassadors to the court of St. James at St. James Palace in London. The Ambassadors to Iran, Cuba, Syria, United States, Egypt, Jordan and many others attended this most important event. The event was sponsored by the Three Faiths Forum, an inter-religious organization in London, UK. Pave the Way Foundation has built an international reputation for its work in improving relations between the religions through historic gestures. Mr. Krupp spoke of the dangers of religious extremism in every religion and stressed that the governments need to reach out to religious leaders; to create a cadre of leaders to loudly and immediately respond to malevolent acts committed in the name of religion.
Forthright in his comments, Mr. Krupp believes it is just a matter of time before someone uses a WMD to kill millions of people in the name of religion. Stressing the importance of active engagement, he stated that we risk everything we have devoted our lives to building if people of good will continue to simply ignore the events which may lead to a catastrophic event. Government cannot respond to religious diatribes and claims of heavenly rewards for violent acts. Only the intervention of religious leaders can influence spiritual beliefs and this is essential today. In addition, Mr. Krupp stressed that the media must be made a partner in this effort. All of the condemnations against extremism can be made but are useless if no one hears them. While the governments are spending trillions on homeland security and defense, nothing is being spent on the cause of it all, extremists found among every religion.
Representatives from the World Economic Forum's C-100 Committee participated in the conference and invited representatives of Pave the Way Foundation to come to Amman Jordan and address the C-100 committee to make a better world in May.
About Pave the Way Foundation: PTWF is dedicated to achieving peace by bridging "the intellectual gap," promoting tolerance and understanding, by enhancing relations between religions through cultural, technological and intellectual gestures. The Foundation has a simple yet monumental vision: To enable all the world's religions to mutually realize that extremism, politics and personal agendas must not be allowed to poison the true benevolent message common to all faiths. Bigotry and hatred must be abolished by the faithful embracing their similarities and savoring their differences.
