Sons of Abraham relates the unlikely friendship between the orthodox Rabbi Marc Schneier and Imam Shamsi Ali. Anti-Muslim prejudice was common in Schneier's orthodox New York upbringing, and Ali was taught at the Islamic University in Pakistan that Jews were intent on dominating the Muslim world. Yet these two men forged a lasting friendship in the tumultuous decade following the attacks of 9/11. In Sons of Abraham they tell the stories of their upbringing and share their vision of how Jews and Muslims can work to find common ground. To that end, they analyze some of the religious texts that divide -- but can also unite -- Jews and Muslims. Schneier and Ali then address the pressing issues of the day, such as why Jews should be concerned about Islamophobia, and why Muslims should care about anti-Semitism (and neither man shies away from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, while finding room for principled disagreement). In a time when Jews and Muslims are viewed as incorrigible enemies, Sons of Abraham is an example of a genuine alliance that gives readers a cause for hope.
