Hate will not win says EML President following German shootings

Today dawned with the horrific news that at least 11 people have been killed in what appears to be a far right-inspired shooting.

Our thoughts are with the families of those who died and with the survivors following the incidents at shisha bars in the German town of Hanau 25km east of Frankfurt.

German counter terrorism prosecutors have now taken over the investigation into what is being described as a xenophobic attack.
The perpetrator, according to various media, expressed extreme rightwing views in a letter of confession he left behind.

The shisha bars are known to be patronised by members of the Turkish and Kurdish communities, but at this stage little is known about the victims of this horrific attack.

However, regardless of the victims' faith, culture or identity EML offers the deepest sympathy to all of those affected by this horrific incident.

EML President Alfredo Maiolese, a leading figure in Europe's interfaith community, said: "The horrific scenario emerging from Hanau has shaken all of us to the core. Our thoughts are with every family which has been affected by this heinous crime.

"It makes those of us in EML, including our global network of peace ambassadors, more determined than ever to continue to promote our messages of love and understanding between all people of faith and none."

EML Secretary General Yvonne Ridley added: "The motives behind the attack are still being investigated but credible information emerging shows this hate crime was rooted in the rise of the far right.

"There is too much hate in the world today but our message of peace and mutual respect will continue because it will always be far more powerful than the hate which fuels the fire of xenophobia, Islamophobia, anti-semitism and other forms of hatred."
