    The lasting impression whenever I read these stories and the reactions from some of the public is always this: There is a sorry lack of understanding of religions of the world. The entire matter of kirpan would be solved in elementary school by having classroom visits with talks by representatives of local religions. It would take one afternoon a month at most. An inter-faith component in the curriculum. When you see a kirpan then you realize how stupid the controversy is. But then some people know they are stupid and are proud of it (please forgive me).

    Problem is a lot of the so called "establishment figues" log into the Channel 4 forum, and they should know better!

    Leadership - is it about public approval, or is it about wisdom? You don't have to answer. Just a rhetorical question. :)
