In Sons of Abraham, Rabbi Schneier and Imam Ali tell the story of how they became friends and offer a candid look at the contentious theological and political issues that frequently divide Jews and Muslims, clarifying erroneous ideas that extremists in each religion use to justify harmful behaviour. Rabbi Schneier dispels misconceptions about ‘chosenness’ in Judaism, while Imam Ali explains the truth behind concepts like jihad and sharia. The two also speak forthrightly on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, stressing the importance of having a civil discussion and the urgency of reaching a peaceful solution.
