Everyone has agreed that extremism and terrorism are intractable diseases that do not know race or color, even when followed by some of the religions followers, with a diversity of races and colors.  Religion and moderation remain a fort for the protection and prevention from falling into the clutches of these deadly diseases. There is of course, a social responsibility in the treatment and prevention of this phenomenon; all society segments and institutions have to bear these responsibilities, starting from the family, the school, as well as reaching the ministries, and civil society groups. Attendees confirmed that our country is targeted by enemies, because of the various blessings our country enjoys. Thus, the community has to keep awake for these enemies.

It is noteworthy that the project, in its first day, was accompanied by a workshop, titled "How to protect the young people from online extremist dialogues." In addition, there were two training courses in the field of intellectual dialogue during the second and third days, with an average of 10 hours. The dialogue is set to target all segments of the society, male and female, through the development of targeted capabilities in the prevention of extremism from the aspects of knowledge, of skills and of compassion.
