I very much doubt believers would actually risk their soul fraternizing with the 'enemy' in any meaningful way...

In spite of your doubts it already happens all the time and has been happening for a long time. Many of the most dedicated people working for social justice and world peace are "believers" and they work with atheists and agnostics all the time. Some famous examples are Daniel Berrigan and Martin Luther King. I've also personally worked with many believers on these issues and I've often been impressed by their dedication and commitment.
