Rabbi Sacks: Religion not the primary cause of violence and war


The rise of militant Islam has been accompanied by an upturn in reports of anti-Semitic incidents across Europe.

The murder of four Jews in a Paris supermarket on the same day as the Charlie Hebdo attacks was the grimmest example of this.

The former Chief Rabbi, Lord Sacks, believes that a return to religious values is needed if we are to counter the attraction of terrorism for disillusioned young Muslims.

It’s one of his main arguments in a new book on confronting religious violence.

Lord Sacks spoke to Andrew, 14 Jun 2015
