What Would Rabbi Gordis Write To Rabbi Rosen?

I have been informed that 

Rabbi David Rosen is endorsing a new Saudi interfaith initiative in Austria by joining its 'board of directors'.
The group is called: King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue (KAICIID).

There were other Rabbis at the launch of KAICIID, including Chief Rabbi of Moscow Pinchas Goldschmidt.  [Update: and Prof. L. Schiffman]

Such Saudi interfaith organisations are set up precisely to legitimise and mainstream figures involved in financing terrorism and propagating Islamist ideology and of course, anti-Semitism. The Rabbis along with several Christian clerics who have joined KAICIID, or participate in its activities, are playing the role of 'very useful idiots'.

The president of the Muslim World League, Abdullah Al-Turki, was also at the launch of KAICIID.

I wonder what Rabbi Daniel Gordis would write, after his tangling with Rabbi Brous.
