are living in an era in which the world is desperately in need of peace,
friendship, and solidarity. The tensions and conflicts that so defined
the twentieth century continue in this new century, and innocent people
all around the world continue to suffer from them.
Despite the urgent need for solidarity and cooperation, certain circles are inciting conflict, particularly conflict between the world's two greatest and deep-rooted civilizations. This issue needs to be scrutinized, as the war of civilizations that they envisage would have disastrous consequences for humanity. One of the best ways of preventing such a disaster is to strengthen the dialogue and cooperation between these civilizations. This is not a hard task, as there are no fundamental differences between Islam and the Judeo-Christian western world. To the contrary, there is much common ground between them. Considering the current situation and the nature of the world's problems, these shared values will make the cooperation necessary for solving them possible.
ideological struggles, indeed, continue to divide the world. However,
Muslims are not at one pole and Jews and Christians are not at the opposing
pole. In fact, one pole represents people who believe in God's existence
and unity, and the other pole represents the unbelievers, who believe
in such anti-religious ideologies as materialism and Darwinism. There
is only one way to defeat the alliance of the various groups of unbelievers
on an ideological level: eradicate the negative and destructive influences
of anti-religious materialism and further the cause of a society dominated
by morality, happiness, tranquility, security, and prosperity. This will
be done by forming an alliance of all conscientious people, namely, sincere
Christians, along with religious Jews and Muslims, who will come together
and unite in this common cause.
There have been conflicts and disputes between members of these three religions in the past, but those were the result of the erroneous reasoning and evil motives of certain states, nations, and individuals who pursued their own economic and political gain instead of the central beliefs of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. One of the common aims of these divinely revealed religions is to ensure the happiness, security, peace, and tranquility of all people by opposing conflict.
Therefore, this dialogue and alliance will be based on the sincere believers' quest for justice, peace, and support for all people. The resulting dialogue will not be restricted to meetings and conferences, but will cement an alliance between people who advocate common values, fight for the same cause, and seek permanent solutions to common problems. This alliance will be one of the main contributing factors to tranquility at a time when Prophet Jesus' (peace be upon him) second coming is expected.
