US-Saudi-Interfaith

WHITE HOUSE (AP) _ President Bush plans to take part in an interfaith session at the United Nations. The Nov. 13 meeting of the U.N. General Assembly was initiated by Saudi King Abdullah, who's been promoting dialogue between Islam and other world religions. White House Press Secretary Dana Perino says the president wants to promote interfaith harmony, adding that the U.S. supports the universal right "to practice one's religion.'' Saudi Arabia bans non-Muslims from openly practicing their religion, but Abdullah has urged Muslims to reach out to non-Muslims to show that Islam is not a violent religion. Perino says President Bush "believes that it doesn't matter what religion you are. He believes that we all pray to the same God.''
