|Mr.Soliman will attempt to demystify the concept of Jihad and explain how it is not synonymous to terrorism
ASIS International, the world’s premier association for security professionals, has announced that Fadel Soliman, Director of the Bridges Foundation will be a keynote speaker at ASIS Europe 2013.
As a keynote speaker Mr. Soliman will attempt to demystify the concept of Jihad and explain how it is not synonymous to terrorism.
Fadel Soliman is a member of the International Union of Muslim Scholars who received his master’s degree in Shariah in 2008. Besides being an electronics engineer Fadel is an international speaker, orator, and presenter of Islam. He has presented to more than 60,000 people all over the world in churches, universities, and governmental departments, including the U.S. Department of Defense, as well as at international events, such as the Frankfurt International Book Fair in 2004.
Fadel trained over 13,000 Muslim youths on how to present and refute misconceptions about Islam through the Bridges Foundation’s workshops in more than 17 countries.
Fadel founded the Bridges Foundation in 2005, an international organisation specialising in introducing the reality about Islam to non-Muslims, and training Muslim public speakers and presenters. Bridges videos — in which Soliman debates the arguments of extremists in English and Arabic — helped in the de-radicalisation of many Muslim youths. Over 200,000 DVDs of his films were distributed around the world by Muslim organisations in an attempt to combat Islamophobia.
The ASIS 12th European Security Conference & Exhibition will take place on 14-16 April 2013 in Gothenburg, Sweden. It will cover a wide range of security issues in 33 high-level educational sessions divided over 3 parallel tracks.
The conference will also feature:
- Three keynote presentations
- Dedicated sessions for Chief Security Officers (CSOs) and their deputies organised by the CSO Roundtable of ASIS International;
- An enlarged exhibition featuring the latest in security technology and services, and;
- Unrivalled networking opportunities at the President’s Reception, lunches and networking breaks.
