    Given Hillel Cohen is a researcher at The Harry S. Truman Research Institute for The Advancement of Peace, I think it's about finding peace.

    Well the posting did offer at least one interesting observation:

    his experience of teaching in a school to Moslem pupils had taught him that irony was quite alien to their way of thinking

    Maybe that would change if Muslims binged-watched The Twilight Zone.

    I think he was talking about irony in a religious context, such as when reading sacred texts. Even then, I don't think that's entirely true.

    More interesting seems to recognize the difference in perceptions and favor dialogues to help build bridges instead of walls. And a shared culture might help indeed.
