Catholic diocese in Italy demonstrates how dhimmitude to Islam remains a serious problem

Robert Spencer describes the sad case of a Catholic representative who's kowtowing to Islam:
Another Ramadan is upon us, and as is always the case, the eager-to-be-fooled infidels are out in force. A Catholic diocese in Italy has just called upon priests and laypeople to seek out opportunities to participate in Ramadan observances, as a gesture of goodwill toward Muslims. When will Muslim leaders tell Muslims to participate in Christian worship to show friendship with Christians? Don’t hold your breath.

The Catholic Herald reported Friday that the Italian diocese of Bergamo is “instructing its priests to participate in Islamic rituals, citing Pope Francis’ directives on interreligious dialogue.” Diocesan officials issued a directive “urging priests to seek out opportunities for interreligious dialogue during the ‘holy month’ of Ramadan by inviting the faithful to join in praying with Muslims and joining in the Iftar ritual meal.”

This directive was the handiwork of Fr. Massimo Rizzi, who is the director of the diocese’s Office for Interreligious Dialogue. Fr. Rizzi is such a hip, up-to-date, Church-of-what’s-happening-now type of priest that he even went so far as to give this letter the date 23 Sha’ban 1445. He wasn’t trying to fool anyone into thinking that the directive had been written nearly six hundred years ago; the date he gave was that of last Monday according to the Islamic calendar.
Even if one doesn't agree with everything in the Hindu/Buddhist/Shinto religions, it's bewildering how "interreligious" conversations don't seem to extend to any of them. Why don't those 3 aforementioned faiths count for such dialogues? Or, why aren't they considered better partners in the same? All that aside, this is definitely awful what's going on, and it will eventually bring down the western world. This is also why one can't be shocked if formerly faithful Christians have become disillusioned. The question then is, why don't even advocates of Judaism try to persuade the disillusioned to try out that instead, along with religions like the 3 aforementioned? Seriously, I think it's about time somebody in Judaism considered whether it might give Europeans new hope, and a better way of being able to manage their lives.
