UAE Information Ministry calls for greater freedom in the Arab World 'In my view, religious extremism that begets terrorism will not recede without a review of Arab and Islamic conditions," he said. "We cannot speak of stamping out extremism without revising the educational system and without rethinking our political state of affairs and economic problems." Encouraging?

Apologies for not linking to the full statement. I had a good search but I think that it is only available in Arabic.

Imagine a world in which religion is no longer a pretext for conflict...
