WATCH: Jew and Muslim in viral Manchester photo tell of decade-long friendship

A Jewish woman and a Muslim man, whose photo mourning together in the aftermath of the Manchester terror attack went viral and symbolized hope for coexistence to many, have been good friends for over 10 years.

Renee Black, a 93-year-old Jewish woman and Sadiq Patel, a Muslim man, traveled to Manchester on Wednesday from the nearby town of Blackburn to mourn the victims.

The pair were captured on video and in photos talking and joining in prayer next to a makeshift memorial in Albert Square, in the city’s center.

“When we were walking through Albert Square I kept asking Sadiq: ‘Why is everyone looking at us?’ I couldn’t understand what all the fuss was about us being there together. All I could think about was that poor little eight-year-old girl,” Black said, referring to one of the victims.

In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
