Dialogue with Muslims

From Time Magazine:

One Western leader who has made a point of listening to the concerns of the
Christians of the Muslim world is Venice's Cardinal Angelo Scola, host of the
two-day encounter at the 17th century Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute.
Scola is rapidly becoming Catholicism's most influential voice — beyond the Pope
himself — on matters related to the Muslim world. From Venice, which for
centuries has served as a bridge betweeen civilizations, the Cardinal founded
Oasis, a cultural and study center and twice-annual journal that gathers
perspectives from Catholics in Muslim countries. The initiative is both as a way
to safeguard the rights of Christian minorities, and to promote mutual
understanding between the Church and Islam.

I think, people should listen each other. Muslim World and Christian World should be communicated. Dialogue is the only way to undestand better and live together.
