The sanctity of human life transcends that of all the holy places including Mecca, the Vatican or Jerusalem, a group of prominent Imams in France told President Shimon Peres on the eve of the commemoration of the first anniversary of the terrorist attack on a Chabad school in Toulouse.

The Imams from the most important mosques were part of a Muslim delegation that also included representatives of the Egyptian, African, Moroccan and Senegal communities in France. Peres was pleasantly surprised by the attitude of the Imams who in the course of their discussion expressed appreciation for the manner in which Israel permits freedom of worship for people of all faiths.  They also voiced support for Israel's fight against terror.
