      The most important thing interfaith is a dialogue. Without it Christians can`t admit that Jews are their older brothers in the faith. Jerusalem is still holy city also for Islam. John Paul II was person who could show us that without supporting the spirit of tolerance we won`t achieve success, agreement and peace. http://www.jp2love.com/celebrities.html
