A donkey with a load of holy books is still a donkey.
In eastern Libya an U.S. ambassador is dead. The political machine is turning on this one and some have unsuccessfully used it to their disadvantage. This beautiful land of Africa on the Mediterranean Sea holds a deeply conservative Muslim nation. Ak-47s, Islamist militant armies, Ambassador Stevens and a film “Innocence of Muslims”, all speak of hate and death. Then there is Morris Sadek Egyptian Christian Activist and Coptic man who embodies his war against the God of Islam. Joining his battle is Pastor Terry Jones a conservative Christian of Florida who promotes this hate on September 11th by showing this film. While the best of the best, Sufi Muslim Shrines, are destroyed by religious extremists. The Majority of people who live in Libya are not hateful. We need to remember this.
This beautiful fertile crescent is a historical place of war shed for extreme generations of time. It is a love hate religious war. I wish we could gather up all of these extremists and put them on an island at sea and just let them kill each other off. The extremist Muslim, Christian and Jew seem to hate all the time. Truly my deepest wish is that they would just sit down and talk and learn to live together without all this childlike emotional hatred.
These religious traditions all are Abrahamic religions that come from the same seed. I feel now is the time to trace their generations back together. Joining together in their common religious heritage. Then drink and dance with the whirling dervishes. Healing the fertile crescent. Childlike spiritual emotional hopefulness works too!
Happy are those who find fault with themselves instead of finding fault with others.
