Olmert to meet Mubarak; Israel Gets Secular Rabbis
(Page 2 - Previous Page)Jack Miles, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "God: A Biography," presented the Christian point of view and stressed the opportunities afforded charitable organizations by the U.S. tax code, while Dr. Azim Nanji, director of the Institute of Ismaili Studies in London explained the Muslim philosophy that says "the delivery of health care has no boundaries".
According to Nazim Karim, editor of The Ismaili magazine, the genesis of the conference came at the time of the Northridge quake, when faith-based organizations first worked together. Now, he said, is the time "to see what can be done practically."
