Extract of speech: "Instead of shouting at one another, we must listen to one another -- and learn from one another. As we do, one of our first lessons might well center on those powerful but often neglected chapters in history when Islamic and European cultures interacted cooperatively -- constructively and creatively -- to help realise some of civilisation's peak achievements." H.H. The Aga Khan.
