Jennifer,

If two women were lying on the side of the road dying of thirst - would you ask them which scripture they follow? Or would you give each something to drink?

The "people" of the MIddle East are a people looking for a way out of a situation not totally of their own making and not one that they totally control. You see a religion - you are not seeing the people -

I do not believe Allah/God/Jehovah/YWHW/Elohim whatever you wish to call it cares one iota whether they be Muslim or Christian or whatever - I think he would say quit speaking for me I can speak for myself - If you believe as you say do then God gets his way without your or my help - the people get their way only with your or my help. Faith is important, reason is important, compassion is most important.

Forget the scripture - just give them both a drink of water.

Submitting....
