The Forum for Development, Culture and Dialogue (FDCD), which helped to organize the conference, aims to facilitate discussion on radicalization and extremism prevention and to help resolve conflicts.The conference was arranged by FDCD and Danmission, a Denmark based Christian NGO that focuses on poverty reduction and religious dialogue. Entitled "Danish Arab Interfaith Dialogue," the event was organized to look at ways that discussion between people of different faiths and cultures can benefit them. "We have to learn about each other, dare to find each other and ask about the difficult things, so we don't fall for – no offense – bad news and media who don't do their work properly," Lindhart said.She admitted that measuring the real world effect of such interfaith dialogue was difficult, if not almost impossible. Lebanon-born and raised, Sammak said he was wary of speculating about the future. But said he takes some comfort in the particular qualities he saw as being exhibited by the Lebanese.
