Baroness Williams stresses importance of Jewish-Muslim interfaith initiatives
by Sandy Rashty
Baroness Williams stressed the importance of Jewish-Muslim interfaith initiatives in Britain in the wake of the increasing violence in Israel.
Speaking ahead of the formal launch of the Jewish-Muslim women's group Nisa-Nashim on Wednesday evening, the parliamentary under-secretary for the Department of Communities and Local Government said: "I think [interfaith initiatives] are always important, but obviously now it is a good time - in terms of diffusing some of those tensions for people who share common values together."
She said both communities valued "the importance of family, education, achievement in employment and the importance of their faith."
