YES! This is the eternal truth of the Torah which trancends all doctrine, dogma and theological supposition. There are not different races of man, "MAN" is ONE KIND upon the face of the earth. There are not many "LAWs", there is but ONE LAW which governs the affairs of all men.

We are all formed of the same substances and born into the world in the same manner. None of us springs suddenly from the mind of G-D but each one of us grows out of what was before so our history is our life and all that we are. Those who seek to destroy our history and our memory of who we are are those who seek to destroy us. Like wise those who seek to change or to rewrite our history to make it seem something that it was not and is not. All those who weave of us fantastic tales of miracles and great wonders as well as great horrors and seek to make us seem bigger than we are, such men rob us of our humanity which is the very life of us. This is what I object to in the Church and as well in the Mosque.

I am a MAN! Do not seek to make of me either a god or a devil for I am neither god nor devil and no different from you but in seeming. If you cut me I bleed just as you do and if you strike me I will fall just as you will. We are both sprung from the same branch of the Tree Of Life and given breath by the same G-D. Are we not then brothers?
