This morning Bosnian Grand Mufti Mustafa Ceric and a number of other Muslim dignitaries visited and prayed at the former Nazi death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau.  This trip was intended to pay tribute to the millions of Jews who lost their lives in this horrific place and as a way to begin to forge cultural ties between two religions that are usually anything but civil.

That’s a side of Islam we don’t always hear about.
