This chapter presents a response to comments in the previous chapter. Against the widespread perception in the West of Muslim responsibility for ethnic cleansing, this chapter cites statistics to the effect that the vast majority of people who died in the Bosnian War did so at the hands of Orthodox Christian Serbs. And in Rwanda, nearly a million Christians were killed by other Christians in three short months. It argues that these tragic statistics are conveniently forgotten in the West, a failure of memory that makes the Christian-Muslim dialogue difficult. The chapter also pleads for interreligious dialogues to be concerned not only for the marginalized of one’s own religion, but for all the marginalized of the world, regardless of religion.

Keywords:   Muslims, Christians, interreligious dialogue, ethnic cleansing, Bosnian War, Rwanda
