"Dialogue among Civilizations" not "Clash of Civilizations"
In 2000, former President of Iran As-Sayyid Mohammed Khatami addressed the United Nations promoting "Dialogue among Civilizations" vice the "Clash of Civilizations," which is now being advanced within the neo-conservative and evangelical circles.
See speech at:
Last year, UN Secretary General Kofi Annan launched an initiative entitled "Alliance of Civilizations" based off of precepts discussed from the discourse of Khatami.
With the current demonization of Iran, it is noteworthy to point out that their major detractors have become more reclusive and have decreased dialog while Iranian figures such as Khatami have continously called for understanding and reconciliation.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) will be hosting a special reception and dinner for Khatami on September 8, 2006 in Arlington, Virginia.
Below is the most recent speech of Sayyid Khatami on August 26 in Japan addressing the World Assembly on Religions and Peace:
