In the first section, Akbar Ahmed discusses his involvement with Jewish-Muslim dialogue over a period of several decades in both the United Kingdom and the United States. Subjects discussed include the UK’s seminal Runnymede report on anti-Semitism, which led to a second commission examining Islamophobia. He discusses the similarities and connections between anti-Semitism and Islamophobia. The author then discusses interfaith dialogue in the United States and the ways in which members of both faiths came together in the aftermath of 9/11. Finally, the author discusses the current state of Jewish-Muslim dialogue in both the United States and the United Kingdom.
