This chapter presents the author's account of the difficulties of carrying on interreligious dialogue in what he and other Palestinians in Israel experience as living under occupation. He focuses on a number of historical precedents, including that of the Prophet Muhammad himself and the famed Pact of Umar, and from them makes an argument for mutual co-existence among Muslims, Jews, and Christians. He believes that the fact that there is more than one religion evokes humility. He also suggests that religious plurality may itself be a part of God's design for humanity.

Keywords:   Palestinians, Israel, interreligious dialogue, Qurʾan, Muhammad, Muslims, Jews, Christians, humility
