Columnist wrong in cynicism about peace
By Luke Wilson, CAIR-Chicago

In response to the Chicago-Tribune article: “Don't let violence sabotage efforts toward peace"

I was surprised to read in the column by Ray Hanania, "Don't let violence sabotage efforts toward peace," that Christians, Muslims and Jews have "never lived together in peace."

I'm sure that most of your readers, and probably the author too, can attest to the fact that this is not true. I can appreciate the theme of the column. But, as it reads, that one inaccurate statement defeats the entire purpose.

I expect more from the Daily Herald than to allow such naïve generalizations to be printed. A little in-depth reporting might have shown that peace between Christians, Muslims and Jews is not a high-minded ideal, but a process that is going on right now in our city, as well as all over the world. The hundreds of thousands of Jews, Muslims, and Christians in the Chicago area are a daily living testament to this.
