Tensions across the Muslim-Christian divide are increasing in communities around the country. In addition to the Juan Williams/NPR/Fox controversy of recent weeks, inter-religious hostilities are still swirling in New York; Temecula, California; Gainesville, Florida and elsewhere. For this episode of CLExchange OnAir, we're joined by two gentlemen who are part of the National Muslim-Christian Initiative, an interfaith coalition seeking to educate and encourage peaceful dialogue among Muslims and Christians. Dr. Peter Makari is director of Middle East and Europe Global Ministries for the United Church of Christ and the Christian Church Disciples of Christ. Naeem Baig is vice president and executive director of the Islamic Circle of North America. We'll discuss what their initiative is doing to inspire more understanding and less fear so that communities can break down the barriers that divide them.
