Interesting religious dialogue with King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia
Some thing seem to be changing... King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia had a good idea in convening an interfaith conference in the Spanish capital, Madrid, earlier this month. The meeting brought together some 200 representatives of the three monotheistic faiths - Christianity, Islam and Judaism. The Saudi king even met Jewish people - including one from Israel. Fr Samir Khalil SJ, gives some excellent comments (as always, a pleasure to read him!) in AsiaNews.
The Jerusalem Post caught the importance of the event. More can also be read in the International Herald Tribune. And this is how Rabbi David Rosen describes its significance.
