What to do....

well this is really a tough situation, or so it would seem. The media wants to keep you in fear and twist your view of life to it's own devices and our governments (arabic and western) are all run by men who desire power above all other things (Lord of the Rings quote, kinda).

But I digress, the way to peace is very unclear politically, and I think this is why it can never happen entirely on a political level...look at the current political war in the US over gay marriage, abortion, etc. and you see no end in sight! My heartfelt convictions are that nothing can be solved this way, but through social activity! When Jesus came there were many Jews who were disappointed because they though He (Jesus the Messiah) would overthrow the Roman Empire, however Jesus' goal was to die for the sins of the world, and let a social revolution (the Good News spread by the Apostles) change the world! You see no one can ever tell someone else what to do and have them respond in a good way, you need to love that person and let God change them....

So onto the topic of this blog, what to do..... well from a political standpoint only, I don't know if any good can come out of that...so I would suggest to reach out in LOVE to the Muslims, who are obviously very lost and confused (though they will deny this as the wool is held by satan over their eyes). Only through love will this lust for hate and destruction be destroyed! And if everyone under the leader is listening to love, what can one hateful man do against a nation who doesn't listen to his hate?

I also think it wise to alert the media to the horiffic atrocities done in the name of allah towards everyone who isn't muslim, and to let the world know what the koran really preaches (i.e. the violent life of mohammed). It would also be wise from a political standpoint not to give in to their demands! peace out
