Christians, Moslems, and Jews lived in peace and harmony in medieval Spain. This sharing of time and place was called CONVIVENCIA. Even to this day, in parts of the world, the three religious traditions co-exist side by side, each tradition having mutual respect for the others.
There is absolutely no legitimate reason that a renewed spirit of CONVIVENCIA cannot once again bring these three great religious traditions together.
As long as our political leaders continue to promote fear, hatred, bigotry, and mistrust, the world will remain in turmoil.
If our political leaders would expend the same effort promoting world peace as they do in promoting world war, we could embrace our brothers and sisters throughout the world in a spirit of love, joy, and peace.
