DOHA (AFP) - Mohammed bin Mubarek al-Khalifi, head of Qatar's Shura Council, announced the setting-up of the centre at the opening a meeting in Doha of scholars and clerics from the three religions -- Christianity, Islam and Judaism.

He gave no details about the project.

Discussions at the conference were to include Islam's image in the West and Muslim woman and the West.

During last year's Doha Conference for Inter-Faith Dialogue, 13 rabbis were among the delegates who debated topics such as the controversial publication of cartoons in European newspapers depicting the Muslim Prophet Mohammed, which enraged Muslims worldwide.

Gas-rich rich Qatar, a close US ally, has hosted an Israeli trade mission since 1996 and visits by Israeli officials are relatively frequent despite the two countries not having diplomatic relations.
