Both are the mirror image of each other in terms of fanaticism and lies in the hope of imperial glory. If there be a real God, he will save the world from both! For the truth of God is all-inclusive, free and truly merciful, benevolent and compassionate -- it is there for all, without paid up membership -- unconditional and eternal, for all God's creation.

Violence is the rule of the jungle, and not even all animals subscribe to violence. If you reduce yourself to beasts in the name of religion, so be it! But remember, those who live by the untruth, by violence and lies or intimidation, or even material inducement, will never pass the first test. In spiritual vision, it is not the numbers, but the quality of thought and behaviour that matters the most. Otherwise, there's more cockroaches and rats on earth than human beings -- people don't have to stoop to competing with these denizens to prove that they're better than other human beings!
