I'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony...


So sweet. I haven't cried this much since Optimus Prime died.

Yeah, I know, I'm a bad person.

Seriously though, apparently this thing draws very much on the various Sufi traditions and one point worth making - setting aside any broader debate regarding how wholesome Sufism is or whether or not Islam as a whole is fundamentally a happy religion of peace and pink marshmallows - is the fact that in fact the bits of the Islamic world (and the travelling Salafist self-detonating terrorist roadshow we're currently butting heads with from London to Iraq) with whom America tends to have beef also tend to be the places and the people that have been the keenest to suppress Sufism.
