What we have been watching in the news recently is sad and also shameful. If we all follow the teachings of the prophets and the books of God there will be no violence or hate in the world. Our books are the same and our God is one. We are in the 21st century, the era of civilization and technology but yet, we witness violence and blood shed because people went astray from the common message of their creator.
Neither Judaism nor Christianity nor Islam are calls for violence or hate, but history witnessed wars and barbarian madness from all. People are being killed or leaving their homes to escape death in Middle-East, which is known to be, the source of knowledge, the cradle of civilization and the birthplace of monotheism. We also witness hate on our land of freedom and diversity.
The enemy of our civilization is ignorance. Therefore, I call on all the teachers, the rabbis, the priests, the ministers, the imams and all knowledgeable people to share their knowledge of the truth because knowledge is our hope and spreading knowledge is spreading love and tolerance among mankind.
Our hearts have to open to one another in order to witness hope.
“Lord give us faith and give us faith in faith. Grant piety to our souls and purify them so we can do good deeds and love the others. Help us help; give us strength and enough to give. We ask you for your love and the love of the ones who love you and the love of the deeds which will draw us nearer to your love and mercy.” Amen
