in response to reader comment: Problem w/Muslims

...No G-d is more important than human friendship.
if you travel in Turkey, Palestine, Afghanistan....You can meet friendly normal people.

The demonization of Muslims is as bad as the blanket absolution or glorification of Muslims by many misleading Muslim leaders.
If before the Holocaust an honest discussions could have taken place between the Polish, German, Hungarian Christians and Jews, there would have not been an Holocaust. The Popes and Rabbis were not ready for it, and the ordinary people lacked imagination to counteract the incitement.
Most people were afraid to be engaged in an honest dialog.
The political and religious leaders have failed the people then as they are failing us now again.
We the people, should not allow our extremists to lead us.
Moderate people should demonstrate against the crimes of all extremists irrespectively of the perpetrators and victims.
We are all victims if one life is lost anywhere on this planet!
Only then, can we be all friends.
Friendship is more important than what the G-ds have written in the past.
