Netherlands: Joint Christian/Muslim/Jewish declaration

Netherlands: Joint Christian/Muslim/Jewish declaration

Over the past couple of days I've collected several Christmas stories, which I'll be posting throughout the day.

"Dialog teaches us to work together," says Christian, Muslim and Jewish organizations in a joint declaration for Christmas and New Year's.  "Through dialog we contribute to a peaceful society, By conducting dialog we know to deal with diversity."

The declaration is signed by the Council of Churches in the Netherlands, the Contact Organ Muslims and Government and the Dutch League for Progressive Judaism.  The declaration will be officially presented Jan 4, during a television broadcast of the Dutch Islamic Broadcaster (NIO).  This is the first time that the organizations publish such a joint declaration.
