Recently Muslim clerics, academics and senior theologians wrote an open letter to the world's Christian leaders stating both religions should learn to work together since they each believe in worshipping one God and in practicing neighborly love, reported The New York Times.
The 29-page letter, titled "A Common Word Between Us and You," was signed by 138 prominent Muslims and specifically addressed 25 major Christian leaders in the world, including Pope Benedict XVI, who apologized last year for suggesting Islam was a religion of violence.
