The organizers behind local initiative Rethinking Refugees – Knowledge and Action are broadening their horizons to opening a dialog with Cracovians about Islam, Muslim communities, and their relationships with other faiths and cultures.

It starts with a screening tonight at 18:00 at Kino Pod Baranami of the film Where Do We Go Now?, directed by and starring Oscar-nominated Nadine Labaki. It explores violence between a fractured community of Christians and Muslims and the women from both religions who work together to stop it. Following the film will be a talk with subject experts Karolina Rak, Dr. Hosn Abboud, and Sindhuja Sankaran.

More workshops, discussions, and an evening meal breaking a daily Ramadan fast will follow, information about which can be found here. The events will be in English and Polish with concurrent live streams.

    Why are these people fleeing to Europe if Islam is such a wonderful, loving and tolerant religion? I would like to see minorities flourish in Islamic countries before patronising us to learn more about Islam.

    In response to your answer, western intervention in these countries results in despots and US backed puppets ruling these nations who oppress their people and results in civil war, famine and immigration. If the West left Arab countries alone, stopped exploiting their resources and crippling their economies then these countries would flourish.

    To Gabi:
    First, please do not escape the question asked by Daniel. It was about the conditions and the extremely bad treatment of the minorities, not about the economics. Second, your approach is nothing but self hating b*t. There is absolutely no ‘West’ in Saudi Arabia as well as in many other Muslim countries. While the level of religious or ethnical tolerance is far below the European standard. Just ask the Copts in Egypt or the black people in Lebanon or Hindu in the Gulf or Jews…oops, there are no more Jews over there. By the way, there was no western (unless you call Russia and Iran west) intervention in Syria and Assad is not a US backed puppet. Who is? El-Sisi, Erdogan, Nasrallah? Gimme a break

    Refugees from Islamic countries will never assimilate to a democratic society, they only wish to resettle and continue with their old ways! Look at Sweden for example, they were one of the first European countries to bring thousands of migrants into their country and over 25 years ago. The Statistics don’t lie OVER 40% still unemployed, over 30%have a criminal record, over 49% have no more than a high school education. How does thus expand and grow a country? They cost Billions. All they do is keep having children to help them take over areas. Look at Marseille in France. It’s a Muslim Disaster
