May 15, 2006 New York, U.S.A.: H. H. The Aga Khan in the graduation speech to the SIPA students said: "We are often told that increased contact among cultures will inevitably produce a 'Clash of Civilizations,' particularly between Islam and the West. Such predictions could become self-fulfilling prophecies if enough people believe them. But that need not, and must not, be the case."
