- 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 ?

-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.
