Dakar, Senegal
Rabbi Arthur Schneier met recently with Senegalís president to discuss Israelís relations with the Arab world and ways to implement a tentative peace accord in Darfur.

The private discussions between Rabbi Arthur Schneier, the president of the Appeal of Conscience Foundation, and Abdoulaye Wade took place earlier this week in Senegal.

Rabbi Schneier was part of the U.N. Alliance of Civilizations High-Level Group, which visited Senegal with the aim of issuing recommendations to United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan on how to close the gap between Islam and the West.

While in Senegal, Rabbi Schneier called on the United Nations to organize an international conference focused on the issue of textbooks that foment chauvinism and racial hatred.
