When it IS the best thing to bring children of different nationalities together. What other hope can there be for Bosniaks, Croats and Serbs to see the others as human beings and not as vermin? They really should have more schools in Bosnia like that. Especially as I have read in another article that they have Muslim or Orthodox religion teachers for pupils of these religious groups. But what they also very urgently need is a unified history textbook which clearly shows who tried /tries to split Bosnia apart and who is the aggressor and the victim here; that Serbs, Croats or Bosniaks per se are not evil, but certain politicians and certain ideologies are. After all it is written in the Qur’an that God created Mankind into different nations so that they may learn to respect each other. Sadly, they don’t. Jesus said that one must love his neighbor as oneself, but people do not keep to that either.And the best way for Bosnian Muslims to observe Islam is the traditional way they have been doing for centuries, NOT the wahhabi way! And as for Ramadan: only Muslims must observe it, nowhere it says that non-Muslims have to; and children must only do so if they are 15 or older, so those imbeciles who harassed that boy are either very ignorant or just malevolent. But since Bosniaks are only judged by the yardstick of their religion they might as well commit themselves to it, because being secular has not helped them in not becoming victims of aggression, much in the same way as having converted to Christianity did not help certain European Jews during the Holocaust.
