Then what about the State of Israel. The Jews have their National God and they refuse the Unity of their God to be the Unity of the God Christians and Moslems worship? What about other religions which harbour no Gods like Buddism...There is also a growing population in the West who are irreligious and worship no Gods at all. They cater for cats and dogs instead? moreover Moslems are not easily to be brought to believe in one world based on the Unity of God. They want Churches to be replaced by mosques and the Call of Prayer replaces the bells, women to be klad in Hijab and the Westerners do not relish that? You talk of a world without boundaries! What about Imperialism and missionary efforts of many churches to bring ignorant African under the Cross, of course sometimes under a mask of humanitarian missions such as the Red Cross.

In my comment before I translated some Sufi revelations by Abu Zayd Al-Bistami. Sufist do their best to reach God's conscious. In other words, there is much to religion than can be solved by proving the Unity of God. Mankind will find some other things to differ upon and fight for, for sure... And the problem after all is not religion. Religion is a reflection of class conflict on the National and International planes... Marx is another God who wants to remove barriers. None has succeeeded , none will succeed...
