The fellow and the adversary

To love your fellow as yourself does not mean to love your co-member of the nation, it means to love your complement as yourself. 
To love the stranger, likewise, means more than to love the immigrant or the resident alien, it means to love your adversary as yourself. 
Both the fellow and the adversary are the 'others' to your own way of thinking and of apprehending the world.
