Skip to 0 minutes and 13 secondsHave you read the news today? Do you see how terrorism, extremism, violence, and the surge of the far right in Europe are threatening our societies? How they fuel fear in our lives. Fear of the other. Of other communities, of other people, of other cultures, of other beliefs. But we can do something about this. We can understand and contrast our fear of the other. We can break down stereotypes, prejudice, and mistrust. We can extend a hand of friendship across borders, religions, and beliefs. We can do this through interfaith, which can take place at all levels. Among religious leaders, experts and politicians, but also, and most importantly, at the community and grassroots level. Among people.
