To brothers and sisters of Muslim religion working in the school as
students and teachers.
who teach and study in different schools in Italy or who belong to
associations dealing with educational problems, want to assure you
that we trust in the dialog with you and we consider you friends and
brothers. After the terrorist attack to the Twin Towers some of our
media, of our rulers and of our Italian and European fellow-citizens
have shown an attitude of mistrust, and sometimes of superiority and
of ostility toward the Muslim world, but we don't share this at all.
At the same time we think unfair and unacceptable that for the punishment
and prevention of the crime a lot of innocents are murdered indiscriminately
and that the western powers are going to lead this war in the Ramadan
month, devoted to prayers and fast for the Muslims.
we are angry for passive attitude of European Union versus IsaraŰli's
action against president Arafat, for bloody repression against palestinian
people, and for continue breach of United Nations decisions and of
right to life in Palestine*.
think that the prejudices towards the Muslims are completely unfair
as they come from the western countries that have conquered and colonized,
in recent times, most of the Islamic countries and of the whole world.
Moreover, we can't forget that the International Monetary Found, western
governments and western big multinational companies for some time
constantly condition prices and market worldwide.
Nevertheless the mistrust and the prejudice of the common people of
our country come from ignorance and from media deformations and exaggerations
too. The common people of our country, as we do, do not really know
as you think, as you pray God, as you live your daily life, or as
you live the school experience. This message is therefore an invitation
to the dialog among schools, among classes, teachers and students,
hoping that knowledge can bring us toghether.
People who are intrested in entering our network to exchange news,

First we suggest you the following great themes:

we invite you to spread this message, that we are sending in Arabic
too, in the schools and everywhere you think it right. If people are
interested in getting in touch with us by mail in English, French,
or Italian language, you could give them the mail adresses that are
availables in www.didaweb.net/mediatori.
We are sorry, but we cannot understand the Arabic and we can
only offer a correspondance in western languages.Nevertheless
we know that the Arabian tradition of culture has permitted to Europeans
to read not only the great philosophers Ibn Sina and Ibn Rashd, but
also the Greek Aristotle, translated from Arabic.
that in a near future all peoples know, at least a little, the languages
and cultures of the other peoples.

We think we correctly interpret the intentions of our former subscribers,
adding now this declaration: We strongly condemn the attack of Israeli
against the leader of Palestinian Authority and the inactivity of western
governments and particularly of our European Union. All that contribute
to get worse the athmosphere of suspect and hate between cultures and
