A new interfaith center backed and funded by Saudi Arabia opened in Vienna this week. The center is named for Saudi King Abdullah and is part of an arrangement between Austria, Saudi Arabia, and Spain, with strong support from the Vatican. The center’s board includes three Christians, three Muslims, one Jew, a Buddhist, and a Hindu. Some have opposed the project, arguing that Saudi Arabia practices a radical form of Islam.
