In an unbelievably dramatic finish, Lewis Hamilton won the Formula One title on the last corner of the final lap of the final race. He becomes the youngest ever F1 Champion and deserves all of our congratulations.
Today I am attending a presentation by Dr Irfan Al Alwai on the destruction of the heritage of Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia, the two holiest cities in Islam. Dr Al Alawi is a historian of the two holy cities, an Executive Director of of the Islamic Heritage Foundation, an International Director for the Centre of Islamic Pluralism and a visiting Professor at Leiden University in Holland. I’ll write a post after I have attended the presentation.
