A Little More Tolerance

In an article inspired by David Baddiel’s new film, The Infidel, Sarfraz Manzoor tried being Jewish for a month (he’s a Muslim).

After a month of living Jewish, I came away wishing more people – both Muslims and Jews – would step outside of their social bubbles and spend time in the other community. That way they too would be reminded of that banal but powerful truth, that underneath the skull caps and the headscarves, whether we eat chicken soup or chicken jalfrezi, we really are more similar than we are different.

Now, if we can just get everyone else to understand that, the world would be a better place.
