Original Message Subj: Lebanon and Syria Conference

Dear Friends,

I am sending this from an Internet cafe in Beirut, so I hope the formating is a bit better than the last posting on Africa. For the last two weeks I have been in the Mideast to do some research and participate in a most interesting symposium and dialog on Islamic- Christian relations in the context of "September 11th" - i.e., the terrorist attacks on the United States.

The symposium, held in Beirut, Lebanon and Damascus, Syria, was sponsored by the Reconciliation Walk, a well-know Christian initiative that has sought to undo the legacy of the Crusades, as well as the Middle East Council of Churches, and the National Committee of Muslim/Christian Dialogue in Lebanon. The Syrian portion of the meeting was held in Damascus under the sponsorship of the Reconciliation Walk, the Greek Orthodox Church of Antioch and the Patriarchate of the Near East and Antioch.

While the larger subject of Christian-Muslim relations was often overwhelmed by the recent events in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, substantial progress was made in discussing Muslim-Christian relations in the wake of September 11th and the "war on terrorism."
