It is great to have a majlis or council or institute for the elite, but this won't change the minds of school age students or the general public who would have no access to this great ecumenical curriculum. What is needed is an ecumenical, world religions world civilizations curriculum in the public schools, and all governments, but especially governments in the Middle East need to make a commitment to such an education. It is fine to come to the West and talk tolerance and pluralism, or put such language up on websites, as many Middle East leaders and institutions due, and then turn around and spew out the same intolerance and xenophobia to their public to prove they are patriots and to deflect the resentment of their own increasingly impoverished populations. That is what has to change.
