On July 26, 2004 WRAL News reported, "Muslims from the Islamic Center spent Sunday morning with Jews at Temple Beth Or in Raleigh... The National Leader of the American Society of Muslims addressed the group. Omam Earl Mohammed first visited the Temple in November 2002... Sunday's participants spent most of their time speaking to each other. Leaders of both faiths say the constant unrest in the Middle East makes it hard for people to understand they are religions of peace and say extremists exist on both sides. They know their meeting will not end years of conflict, but it is a start."
