Former Chief Rabbi of Great Britain Jonathan Sacks joined Glenn on TheBlaze TV Tuesday night with a challenge to moderate Muslims whose religion - Islam - is now at the epicenter of a series of violent conflicts growing worse with each passing day.
"I’m really speaking to the moderate Muslims who remember the great traditions of Islam and saying separate yourself away from radical Islamism, which is, I think, an unholy alliance between religion and the pursuit of political power," Sacks said. "Those two things are very separate. You bring them together, they’re an explosive mix."
When Glenn asked how we can get past all the hatred, distrust and vengeance, Rabbi Sacks said we need to bring moderate Muslims and religious Christians and Jews together to demonstrate violence is not the way.
"If we can pioneer in Britain and America a new way for the three Abrahamic faiths together, we can hope in the fullness of time to raise leaders who will give rise to and express a different voice in Islam," Sacks said.
Glenn invited Rabbi Sacks to join him at a future time, perhaps in Glenn's studio, for a roundtable with moderate Muslims to give them an opportunity to be heard.
"Glenn, you’ve got a deal. I could not wish for anything more," Sacks said.
Rabbi Sacks is the author of The Great Partnership, which Glenn has been recommending to his radio listeners recently. His newest book, Not in God's Name explores the roots of violence and its relationship to religion.
