Muslim Scholars send Christmas Greetings

A group of Muslim scholars from around the world wrote a letter, via the website A Common Word, wishing Christians "a joyous and peaceful Christmas Holiday Season commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ [peace be upon him]."

Surprisingly little coverage of this story, other than an article in the International Herald Tribune. A Common Word was launched in an effort to build dialog between Muslims and Christians, in the hopes of using values common to both religions to promote peace and understanding.
