It is not the natural state, but must be established

Tolerance is not a natural state, but must be established anew everyday and  everywhere.

We are only at the very beginning.

Not the advocates of tolerance, but the few radical preachers of hatred and the extremists determine the world agenda, because the masses and the elites in the countries do not take their full responsibility for promoting a world in harmony but remain in their passivity.

The demand for more tolerance must be transferred from the circles of scholars and the speeches of politicians and religious leaders into specific projects.

We need practicable driving belts of transformation that transpose golden ideas into realities. We need many transferable local bridges between the inter-religious speeches and calls of the politicians, on one side, and the local people, on the other side.

We need shining examples of tolerance in religious communities, schools, politics, science, culture, sports and the media – with models of reconciliation and more champions of tolerance from all parts of the world and all religions. Only in this way can we break open the armor of distrust and hatred and create a lasting peace in the conflict regions of the world.
