In an iconic show of unity and brotherhood, a Muslim and a Jew, paramedic partners in Israel, paused during one particularly busy day to pray—the Muslim kneeling on his prayer rug facing Mecca; the Jew donning his prayer shawl, facing Jerusalem. The photo, snapped by a coworker, garnered thousands of likes within hours. One twitter user wrote: “One fight! One victory! Let's unite.”
While a few media outlets fed on the tragedy and sensation in the wake of the devastating Grenfell Towers fire, at least one news organization—the Financial Times—chose to highlight the uplifting side of the story, one of cooperation not conflict.
