An international group of Muslim leaders have sent a letter to the world's Jewish community appealing for better relationships between the faiths.
The unprecedented letter, which is being seen as a significant gesture of reconciliation, said: "Many Jews and Muslims today stand apart from each other due to feelings of anger, which in some parts of the world, translate into violence.
"It is our contention that we are faced today not with 'a clash of civilizations' but with 'a clash of ill-informed misunderstandings'."
Taqqiya at it's best. "Clash of civilizations" is spot on. There's little to misunderstand about the Quran and it's exortations to "kill the Jew, wherever he is".
Signatories of the letter include Professor Akbar Ahmed, a former High Commissioner of Pakistan to Great Britain, who also signed a similar statement earlier this year from Muslim scholars to Christian leaders around the world.
The new letter said: "Deep-seated stereotypes and prejudices have resulted in a distancing of the communities and even a dehumanizing of the 'Other'. We urgently need to address this situation. We must strive towards turning ignorance into knowledge, intolerance into understanding, and pain into courage and sensitivity for the 'Other'."
There's nothing like cutting a persons head off in the same way they would slaughter an animal as a method of dehumanizing
It added: "There is more in common between our religions and peoples than is known to each of us. It is precisely due to the urgent need to address such political problems as well as acknowledge our shared values that the establishment of an inter-religious dialogue between Jews and Muslims in our time is extremely important.
Shared values? Give me a break. Kill the apostate; Islam is superior; no tolerance for the beliefs of others; free speech banned, it goes on. What shared values?
"Failure to do so will be a missed opportunity. Memories of positive historical encounters will dim and the current problems will lead to an increasing rift and more common misunderstandings between us."
That's because immigrant Muslims in the West are deliberately provoking us with ever more ludicrous demands in order to provoke a violent backlash.
One signatory, Sheikh Michael Mumisa, a Cambridge University lecturer, said the letter was the first in modern times sent to the Jewish community with the backing of scholars and Muslim leaders.
"The message in this letter conveys to the Jewish community a genuine desire for mutual respect, for dialogue and deeper understanding," he said.
Why don't they try putting that into practice. As for us respecting them first they should give us a reason to respect them since everything they do only deserves contempt, ridicule, loathing.
"The final stage of history will be the subjugation of all Christian countries under Islam and the extermination of every single Jew - this according to the Palestinian Authority (PA) religious leader during Friday's Sermon.
The Jews are so evil, Ibrahim Mudayris teaches, that they cannot be subjugated like the Christian countries, and therefore the only solution awaiting them is death - literally the extermination of every Jew. In his words: "The day will come and we shall rule America, Britain, we shall rule the entire world, except the Jews."
In the sermon Ibrahim Mudayris reiterated many of the often-repeated PA justifications for the anticipated genocide, including the following hate messages:
The Jews have inherently evil character traits that Muhammad warned Muslims about in the Koran.
The Jews have been the source of conflict throughout all of history: "The Jews are a virus similar to AIDS, from which the entire world is suffering."
The persecution of Jews throughout history is presented as natural responses of self-defense by numerous countries against the evil of the Jews. Britain, France, Portugal, Czarist Russia, Nazi Germany, all persecuted and/or expelled Jews - as acts of self-defense and revenge.
Zionism was created by Britain in order solve its Jewish problem by sending them to Israel.
God has predetermined that the Jewish problem will be solved with the extermination of the Jews.
God has predetermined that the Christian -Islam interactions will end with today's Christian countries under Islam.
Israel has no right to exist and will be destroyed.

A guy who thought Muslims sincere
Said "There's nothing to fear from Taqiyya!"
But he found out he shouldna
Agreed to the Hudna
The day he got slit ear to ear.
Beware of Muslims bearing interfaith letters
