The world watched with horror the recent terrorist attack that claimed the life of a beloved high school teacher, Samuel Paty. Saudi Arabia led other Muslim nations in condemning the attack. In Egypt, Dar Al Efta, the highest religious authority in the country, condemned the senseless violence that undermines Islam’s priority of maintaining the sanctity of human life. And protesters filled French streets in uproar over the attack on teachers and what they see as French values.
