::The West and the Muslim World. A Muslim Position::
Found this publication while I was searching for some intercultural material:
»Appraisal of Western-Muslim relations compiled by six intellectuals from countries strongly influenced by Islam, namely Salwa Bakr (Egypt), Basem Ezbidi (Palestinian Territories), Dato' Mohammed Jawhar Hassan (Malaysia), Fikret Karcic (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Hanan Kassab–Hassan (Syria) and Mazhar Zaidi (Pakistan).
The Report addresses the historical roots of the confrontation between the West and the Islamic world, identifies stereotypes and prejudices, and draws a line through to the causes and effects of the September 11 attacks and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The essays include recommendations and core points for how we can jointly shape the future.«

The report for download (pdf, about 380 KB):
