Cardinal Scola's 'think tank' reflects on future of Islam

Catholic World News - June 24, 2011

Cardinal Angelo Scola, the Patriarch of Venice, convened an impressive conference last week to discuss the implications of the “Arab spring.” Jean-Marie Guénois of Le Figaro reports that the symposium organized by Cardinal Scola—who also founded the journal Oasis to explore relations between Christianity and Islam—drew world-class experts to reflect on the future of militant Islam, the desires of Arab youth, and the likelihood that the Islamic Brotherhood and similar groups will eventually pursue compromise in order to gain political power.
