CAIR-MI: MICHIGAN MUSLIM LEADERS MEET WITH CARDINAL REGARDING POPE'S COMMENTS
(LATHRUP VILLAGE, MI, 9/28/06) - Muslim leaders met with Cardinal Adam Maida and top officials from the Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit to solidify the Archdiocese's commitment to continue respectful dialogue between Metro-Detroit Catholics and Muslims.
CAIR-MI Executive Director Dawud Walid participated in the one-hour meeting, which was hosted by Imam Sayed Hassan Qazwini at the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn.
"With some religious and political leaders promoting a 'clash of civilizations' between the Christian and Muslim worlds, it gives us hope that our local Muslim leaders and the Archdiocese of Detroit have committed themselves to continue civil dialogue," said CAIR-MI Executive Director Dawud Walid.
