Muslim scholars issue warning to Pope Benedict

Some 138 Muslim scholars issued a joint message to Pope Benedict saying the world's Christians and Muslims must make peace with each other.
The "survival of the world" is at stake if Muslims and Christians do not make peace with each other, leaders of the Muslim world will warn the Pope and other Christian leaders today.

In an unprecedented open letter signed by 138 leading scholars from every sect of Islam, the Muslims plead with Christian leaders "to come together with us on the common essentials of our two religions" and spell out the similarities between passages of the Bible and the Koran.

The scholars state: "As Muslims, we say to Christians that we are not against them and that Islam is not against them - so long as they do not wage war against Muslims on account of their religion, oppress them and drive them out of their homes."
I know of not one single person or nation "waging war against Muslims" in the name of Christianity. I can't say the reverse is true.
