SH. Nasr
On Islamophobia

from an UN video*, December 7, 2004; length 23 min
[Listen only or download the audiofile]

“It is very easy to learn intolerance;
but it is very difficult to unlearn intolerance.
That is because of the tendency of the human self, or human ego, to draw thick walls around itself and to always identify 'the other' as the threat, as the opponent.
This tendency becomes particularly dangerous when many different forces concentrate together to create 'a wave' within a society against a particular group or peoples.”
