Dozens of Muslim leaders, led by Iman Hassan Shalghoumi, head of the Imams Conference in France, visited the Barkan industrial zone in Samaria on Friday.
The extraordinary delegation met with Samaria Regional Council head Yossi Dagan and Sheikh Abu Khalil Tamimi of Ramallah, as part of the international hasbara (public relations efforts) activities of the Samaria Council and the Elant organization in France.
Imam Hassan Shalghoumi of France, known for his pro-Israel views, spoke about the visit to the factories in Barkan which employ both Jews and Arabs. "We saw a company in which Israelis and Palestinians work together. I salute them. I support the policy of the head of the Samaria Regional Council to expand and deepen the dialogue. Let us pray that there will be more people, mothers, sisters - that no mother will cry - neither Israeli nor Palestinian. "

"To my right is a woman who lost her husband a year ago, left alone with six orphans. Which right allows you to take a life? The Torah of Moshe forbids murder. And also for us, the Muslims, murder is a horrible sin. The greatest sin is to take a life. The solution is dialogue."
"There will soon be an international peace conference (the Bahrain conference) and there are those who refuse to go. I think it's wrong - one should always go and engage in dialogue. Sit around the same table even if you disagree - dialogue can save us." Shalghoumi also mentioned the activity of the BDS in France, saying that it contradicts the laws of the Koran.
Sheikh Tamimi of Ramallah said that "every problem can be solved through negotiation and dialogue...."

The Imams of France and Italy might have gained a disciple in the Imam of Ramallah. Or it can just be taqiyyah. Time will tell. Mean time it behooves us to keep our powder dry and our minds open.
