Interfaith Dialogue Continued

The basic question about interfaith dialogue:
Can radically different religions understand each other's inner faiths, foundational beliefs, and deepest convictions?
If yes (like I and apparently RIETS Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi K. J. Wieder believe) then the Rav zt"l is wrong in Confrontation and interfaith dialogue is possible. If no, then than the Rav is correct and there is nothing more to say.

However, if we are correct and interfaith dialogue is possibility, then the next question is whether such dialogue is prudent or productive. The answer might be no, but then this is no longer the Rav's framework.
