Islamic-Christian Conference in Bethlehem Seeks Peace

In a quest for peace, more than 400 Muslim, Christian and Jewish leaders from across Palestine—and around the world—gathered on Wednesday at the first International Islamic-Christian Conference in Bethlehem.

Organized by Religions for Peace – Palestine, in cooperation with the Palestinian Islamic Christian Commission, the event aimed to advance dialogue and cooperation among Christians and Muslims in Palestine, and to enhance the culture of co-existence and mutual respect.

Led by Sheikh Mohammad Husein, Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and Palestine and His Beatitude Michel Sabbah, Patriarch Emeritus of Jerusalem and a Religions for Peace co-president, this was the first conference of its kind in Palestine.
