Op-Ed: Too Good to Be True

Below Op-Ed by Rumi Forum President Emre Celik appeared in Huffington Post on 12/02/2013. 

Too Good to Be True 

When was the last time you heard that?

I've heard it a few times -- here's the story.

I am now in my fifth year in Washington, D.C., having immigrated from Australia. Here I have had the pleasure and responsibility of presiding over the Rumi Forum, an organization dedicated to interfaith and intercultural understanding. As part of my position I have the good fortune to travel and talk about issues relating to pluralism, social cohesion, and peaceful coexistence.
