Sayyid Ammar al-Hakim, head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq, considered the dialogue as the right solution for the problems arising out of the different points of view on how to build the state and govern the country. He explained that the difference of opinions is a natural phenomenon in a country where there are multiple religious, denominational, ethnic and political components, while stating that such difference must not necessarily be a cause for the collapse of values such as tolerance, coexistence, acceptance of the other and dialogue.
This came in a speech delivered by his Eminence during the symbolic meeting of political leaders held in his Eminence's office in Baghdad Saturday, 1/6/2013.
In addition, his Eminence called on all politicians, religious references, political leaders, scholars and civil institutions to take a firm position against the exclusion of the other and the attempt of clearing him out of the Iraqi map, stressing the need for a serious, logic, objective and bold dialogue so as to take decisions that maintain harmony and peace in Iraq. He also reiterated the need that the media appeasement bear fruit in order to engage again in an effective dialogue that produces results, pointing that any dialogue must be preceded by the determination to proceed with the settlement of the crisis instead of complicating it.
