the parable of the good somalian

Those of you who a bit about the Bible, might know the parable about the Good Samaritan, told by Jesus Christ. The Samaritans were a group of people during his days who were of mixed descent (Jewish and non-Jewish). In the days of Jesus Jews avoided contact with Samaritans, they even did not like to travel through the places they lived in. In the parable a man is beaten up and robbed, the only one who helps is a Samaritan. The priest and the Levite pass by.

In this account the Somalian writer G. H. Wiilwaal, based in Canada, tells about a Somali man, who tried to help of woman who was attacked.
