stop the clash of civilizations

  1. I like this video, and I like its central message.

    My dad used to say that the trouble starts when we speak of “us” and “them”. I’m a big believer that there’s no justice, there’s just us.

    But I have to ask. Does the creator of this video mean that Al-Qaeda and similar organizations just want to get along in a democratic society?
