A Word About "Interfaith Relations"

Avraham Avinu is held up as the example for how to deal with non-Jews, but those who advocate for common cause and relationships with idolatrous non-Jews are misrepresenting him. He is known as the Ivri, the Hebrew, because he stood on one side while the rest of the idolatrous world stood on the other. He called to them to cross over to him. He did not cross over to their side to make common cause. For, what "common cause" can a G-d fearing Jew have with idolaters???
