Peace circles: Exchanging rings in Oslo

Shortly after a synagogue in Copenhagen was
viciously attacked, Muslims of nearby Oslo were determined to demonstrate that “humanity is one.”

Huff Post Religion reports that they did so by
forming a peace circle around a local synagogue.  In return, hundreds recently “gathered around the Central Jamaat-E Ahl-E Sunnat mosque in Oslo to participate in and form a human peace ring.”

These hundreds included people “of all faiths
and ethnicities.”  Among them were Ervin Kohn, “president of the Jewish Community of Oslo” and Mehtab Afsar, “secretary general of the Islamic Council of Norway.”

What a beautiful example for the rest of humanity to follow.

If only they would…
