They’re calling it “landmark”. Lets just say that the proof of the pudding is in the eating, or, I’ll believe that a new wind is blowing when I feel it. The danger here is for everyone to drop their guard. The TT smells a hint of hudna in the air. KGS
UPDATE: The Sheik pays us a visit and graciously deposits his ancient wisdom:
Not hudna, da’awa! Its just another effort to convince the Jews that they “have gone astray”, that they should mend their ways, that they have “falsified/forged” their scriptures which deny the coming of the profit Muhammad (the last profit) and that they will be allowed to live under Islamic rule (as dhimmies, protected people) like it always was. Such is the natural order of things and anyone who has “logic & reason” would acknowledge that. But we also know that Jews (that includes me) are stubborn creatures who will not submit, so back to square one…..
I’ll give it 2 thumbs down.
Al-Azhar to start dialogue with Jewish scholars
Whilst the statement failed to mention Judaism by name, Mohamed Elsharkawy, a spokesman for Britain’s Grand mufti, said it was aimed at a Jewish audience.
“I am not at liberty to say how hard it was to draft the document,” he said. “In the process, the people who have taken the document forward have done so at great risk and danger, and so they’ve done that very carefully. There already exists a dialogue with Christians, so anyone with two brain cells can add up to what is being said here”.
