#Cyberpeacefare #What Everyone Needs to Know About Islam #John L. Esposito


- "Islam is second largest of world's religions. Third largest religion in America.

- We had always talked about the Judeo-Christian connection but never about the Judeo-Christian-Islamic tradition.

-Why, if Muslims recognize and revere many of the major patriarchs and prophets of Judaism and Christianity (including Abraham, Moses and Jesus and God's revealed books, the Torah and the Messages (Gospels) of Jesus ?

-Many of the questions, which have come from people in very diverse audiences, reflect a predisposition to believe that there is something profoundly wrong with Islam and Muslims.

-The encounter between the West and the Muslim world, between Islam and the Judeo-Christians is not a clash of two separate and antithetical worlds.  Jews, Christians and Muslims are children of Abraham, part of a Judeo-Christian-Islamic tradition.

-If we are ever to achieve such mutual understanding, an essential part of the package must be knowledge of what Islam teaches and what Muslims believe about Islam as well as what we believe about them. 

(Highly recommend read book for educated views about common heritage and tenets of Judaism-Christianity-Islam.  Too much Islamic Ignorance and phobia out there in US Presidential Elections.  Also, checkout Wikipedia Cyberpeacefare, Interfaith Interoperability Dialogue.)  Need differentiate between Radical- Militant-Extreme  Islam Political Terrorism and Moderate Islamic Citizens.  CyberPeaceGadfly
