Pope calls on religious leaders to reject violence

On his four day trip to Turkey, Pope Benedict XVI has called upon religios leaders to reject violence.  According to the report here:
The Pope called on all religious leaders to reject attempts to wield political power and called on them to “utterly refuse to sanction recourse to violence as a legitimate expression of religion”.
That’s an outstanding message for the Pope to deliver.  Now if only we heard the saem message from Sunni and Shiite clerics.  It wouldn’t hurt for a few Rabbis to chime in too.
