On November 10, 2001, the Star Tribune reported that "about 450 people met Thursday night at Luther Seminary in St. Paul [Minnesota] to seek common ground between the two faiths. Mark Swanson, director of the Islamic Studies Program at Luther, said, 'Muslims and Christians must work together in times of crisis.' He 'rejects' claims, he said, that the current situation is a clash between Christianity and Islam."
