To Charlie Hebdo and all the victims of the Paris attacks - 10 January 2015.
There was a time when I rejected my neighbour if his religion was different to mine. But now, my heart has become a receptacle for every being: a meadow for gazelles and a cloister for monks, a temple for idols and a kaaba for pilgrims, the tables of the Torah and the scrolls of the Koran, because I profess the religion of love and I go wherever it strides. Love is my creed and my faith.
Ibn Al-Arabi (1165 – 1240 AD)
