One’s faith can both end conflicts and ignite them. The current American wars, whether or not we choose to ignore the rhetoric about a clash of civilizations, has nonetheless found us in Islamic countries. By lashing out against the insurgencies, often with unintended casualties, we alienate swathes of the population with whom we seek to ingratiate ourselves with. Under the new administration has outreach to Muslim communities and leadership, particularly in Iraq and Afghanistan, improved? If so, how and what initiatives have been put in place?
