IN the NEWS - "Peace" by Friendship?

"In a rare move, major religious leaders ― from Pope Francis to the Dalai Lama ― issued a joint
appeal Wednesday asking people to follow a simple bit of advice: Make friends with people of other faiths.
Our advice is to make friends to followers of all religions,” Ayatollah Sayyid Fadhel Al-Milani, one of the U.K.’s most senior Shia Muslim clerics, said in a video recording.
Personal contact, personal friendship, then we can exchange a deeper level of experience,” the Dalai Lama said.
Pope Francis chose to speak about his long friendship with the Argentinian Rabbi Abraham Skorka, who also appeared in the video. 
My religious life became richer with his explanations, so much richer,” Francis said of Skorka. “And I guess the same happened for him.”
Make Friends” is an initiative of the Elijah Interfaith Institute, an interfaith organization with offices in Israel and the United States. In a press release, organizers said the project’s mission is to counter the idea that people view each others’ religions with distrust or disdain ― and to potentially even reduce violence conducted in the name of religion."
