Cadets from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., listen to Safaa Al-shiraida at the Islamic Center of Jersey City Thursday, April 26, 2012, in Jersey City, N.J. The city of 250,000 is one of the most ethnically and religiously diverse places in America, and the cadets are visiting as part of a class at West Point on peacekeeping and reconstruction called "Winning the Peace." The class ends in a three-day crash course designed to make the future officers _ and, ultimately, the soldiers under their command _ more sensitive to cultural differences. (AP Photo/Mel Evans)
