Today's tensions should lead to tomorrow's aspirations. What we need now is a culture of peace that would help broaden cross-cultural understanding between Islam and the West. With proper knowledge of the culture of the Arab and Muslim worlds, this understanding would help foster tolerance and resolve conflict. We need to sustain a diversity of cultures, not a diversity of imagined clashes and conflicts.
