Interreligious Dialogue and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: An Empirical View

Show Summary Details

Preview

The challenges of accommodative cultural interaction are clearly evident in this chapter, which shows that a religiously based intercultural dialogue is imperative to moderating perception. By emphasizing the commonalities of Judaism and Islam, such dialogue is, in its view, the best means for altering narrow-minded Israeli and Palestinian viewpoints. The chapter's argument is invigorated by empirical findings drawn from meetings the author and his colleagues have engaged in with religious Palestinian Muslims.
