Press Release from Davos - Archbishop Thabo in the wake of Boko Haram attacks in Nigeria and Paris

A press release
issued from Davos:


Davos, Switzerland - In the wake of the latest Boko Haram attacks in Nigeria
and the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris, Archbishop Thabo Makgoba, Anglican
Archbishop of Cape Town, spoke out against the use of terror tactics
masquerading as a religious obligation.

Speaking during an interfaith panel at the World Economic Forum in Davos on
Wednesday, the Archbishop said:

“History is blood-spattered with religion used as a pretext for violence.
Enough is enough. Violence in God’s name is never justified. Religions should
never be used a vehicles of hate - never.”

Archbishop Makgoba joined David Rosen, Rabbi and International Director,
Interreligious Affairs, American Jewish Committee in Israel and Hamza
Yusuf Hanson, Co-Founder and President, Zaytuna College, at the panel which
discussed the use of violence in the name of religion.

He will also participate in a discussion on Business Ethics on Friday, January
23.
