NICOSIA -- Gather 29 devout Jews, Muslims, Christians and radical secularists from 15 countries in the divided capital of a war-wounded island, in the heat of summer, miles in any direction from the nearest sea coast, and what do you get?The answer, hard though it may be to believe, is something like a happy family.[...]"There are only two rules," Mr. Seligman explained to the fellows at the first session, in an air-conditioned lecture hall at the University of Nicosia. "You have to attend every event, and you have to behave as if your group does not have a monopoly on suffering."
You don't have a monopoly on suffering
I know its just an experiment. But it goes to show what can be achieved when you get the right message across, when you condition people believe that no one is the "victim".
That's the lesson Muslims all over need to learn. Closer to home, that's a lesson the Malays need to embrace.
