In the Book of the Prophets it is written:

Isaiah 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

and in Proverbs 16:4 The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil......and

5 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.


It is important for us to understand that these words were given from G_D. If we cannot accept that then we cannot accept any words in Torah and our entire existance is filled with non-meaning and life itself is left under the control of the strongest.

Having said that we look at the 2 versus quoted and must see the first understanding is that G_D created all that is and HIS purpose is revealed in the Proverb.

If G_D created the wicked for that day of evil then we MUST look to what G_Ds plan must be in light of the fact that the 10 commandments were given to Moses and we were instructed to obey them with G_D knowing full well that we could not.

I will go no further into this thought process but the answer to the questin is: NOTHING, life is a plan of G_D not man. IT is what it is because HE created it. That is out deed to do, accept that HE is the potter, we are the clay and HE is able to do with each of HIS creation as HE wishes.

For us it is simply to ask WHAT? As individuals HE will respond and teach us our role/s in HIS plan.

Are the Muslims evil or is it the Jew or the Christian? Truthfully I do not know because G_D never once asked me for an idea on how HE could make this all work.We are taught not to judge. As difficult as that is if we can accept that directive then we will have gained that individual peace that goes beyond understanding.
