I thought they already had one of those


Reuters - top Saudi cleric calls for code of conduct to curb violence. Quote:

A top Saudi Muslim cleric called on Friday for a global code of conduct for leaders, scholars and young people to halt a further slide into violence and "terror" in the Middle East.

[...]

He said "there was an urgent need to prepare a global code of conduct in which the leaders and scholars would deliver their messages and in which the youths would set their thoughts right and the path of the new media is set right," SPA added.

Newsflash, buddy. You guys already have a code of conduct. It's called your religion.

If your religion encourages violence and terror, then your people are already obeying your religion's code of conduct. Good for you.

If your religion instead abhors violence and terror, then your people are disobeying your religion's code of conduct. So do something about it - they're your people, not mine.

If your religion both encourages and abhors violence and terror depending on which way you look at it, then your religion is no moral code whatsoever, in which case I don't see why you're wasting your time with it.
