The 4th Annual Abrahamic Dinner co-organized by Niagara Foundation and Rochester College in Detroit, Michigan, received a large attendance.

At the event, the three Abrahamic religions’ representatives, namely, Sheri Schiff of the Holocaust Museum, Dr. Rubel Shelly, professor of religion and philosophy at Rochester College; professor of history at Wayne State University, Dr. Saeed Khan offered their remarks.

“Bases of Interfaith Dialogue” was this year’s theme in the event series, covering a weighty topic every year.

The consensus among the speakers was that more efforts should be paid in order for love and peace to be established in society. It is not only a social responsibility but also a religious duty for members of the three religions. It’s time for everyone to take an action as social transformations start with individuals, the speakers urged.

The choral performance by Rochester College students livened up the night as the conversations among over 100 guests extended through the hours.

The Process Behind Turkey’s Proposed Extradition of Fethullah Gülen

By publicly campaigning for Gülen’s immediate extradition—before a formal request had been submitted—Turkish officials reinforced the idea that the United States is somehow protecting Gülen or resisting the extradition process. That is not true. There will be critics of any eventual decision, just as there are critics of the delay in reaching a decision. Whatever the result, both governments should communicate the decision with consideration for the long-term relationship and should operate on the assumption that the other is acting in good faith.
