Title of the panel was incredibly inclusive for each aspect of Abrahamic religions; ‘Shalom, Pax, Salam’. All of the three words represented one thing that basic needs of humanity; peace.  Taking steps into understanding others is an essential factor of peace.

Also, why it is so difficult to live in peace was mentioned from the views of three Abrahamic religions.
