Former Israeli President Peres Meets with Pope, Proposes UN for Religions

Carsten Koall/Getty Images(ROME) -- Former Israeli President Shimon Peres met with Pope Francis at the Vatican on Thursday, during which he proposed the founding of a United Religions organization -- modeled after the United Nations -- to fight terrorism.

Peres said he would like to see a religions charter, similar to the UN charter, written in the name of all faiths that would clearly state that mass slaughter has nothing to do with religion.

"It would be the best way to combat these terrorists who kill in the name of their faith," Peres said.
