A local Kitchener imam, Muhammad Abuelezz, and a New York-based journalist and professor, Paul Moses, came together at Conrad Grebel University College on March 8, 2013 to share an 800 year old story. At this public talk entitled "The Saint and the Sultan: Religion, Conflict and the Search for Peace," Moses described the meeting of St. Francis of Assisi and Sultan Malik al-Kamil during the Fifth crusade. Abuelezz responded with the implications for Muslim-Christian relations today.
