SHALOM TO ALL THE BEAUTIFUL ISRAELIANS AND ARABS SUFFERING THE ONGOING WAR ANXIETY.
This is my answer to Noa’s soulful letter.
We need to insist as citizens of the world on non-violent solutions to these conflicts, is the Destruction of Hamas the answer? It will inevitably create more hatred through-out the zone.
I am surprised and blessed to read all the comments from the IPeace members, their depth and intelligence is amazing, but we need to be more creative.
I am honored to say Israelian jews are amongst my best friends, I tell YOU MY FRIENDS: pressure your government to take a different perspective on the conflict. As individuals a TO DO LIST: adopt a muslim orphan, help rebuild a muslim house, employ an arab in your business. Test your love to human beings to the limit: BUILD A MOSQUE. (Would you do it? I'm catholic, but I would)
As long as the First World keeps denying that the true cause of TERRORISM is poverty, which fuels fanatism, this will never end. Hamas might be destroyed just to be substituted by a new organization.
Equality, tolerance, a new world order that will bring richness to under-privileged families around the world is a better way to end conflict. Think about it for one moment, for how long has the war approach being tried without success? Centuries, right?
Take an example, Ireland suffered both the catholic and protestant fanatism and terrorism, as soon as it was granted autonomy from England which brought wealth to their country, and people truly felt they had the opportunity to achieve the SAME lifestyle the British citizens enjoyed, the conflict ENDED.
I know some of you might respond by saying that the 9/11 Terrorist cells recruited college educated, middle class muslims, and that religious differences instead of poverty is the real cause of the conflict, but this middle class youngsters are continuously presented at the terrorist camps with images of the hunger and inequality that the muslim families have to endure as the western world with their “FALSE GOD” is creating in their countries.
How could they convince this young people of hating Jews or Christians if we start practicing CHARITY towards them, treating them like equals, respecting how they dress, or what they believe in?
Muslims as Noa said, need to take responsibility on their hands by tolerating other religions, but our responsibility is to help them flourish as human beings.
As humans our fear to lose our social or economical status cripples us. Let’s all stop fearing we will lose our power by sharing the wealth with different societies, if there is a group that can bring this change to the world is the
CHOSEN PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.
I pray to God he will enlighten you and the rest of us by bringing compassion to this war, to view the arabs as your brothers that are blinded by body and soul POVERTY. What a privilege you have CHOSEN ONES! You were granted with God’s word in THE TORAH.
On the 21st century, use this incredible power, your intellectual and soul superiority to help the people in need, your half brothers, THE OTHER descendents of Abraham, the sons of ISHMAEL.
I KNOW YOU HAVE THE HEART.
