Who Is God?
God is the ONE Who Made Me.
God is the ONE Who Saved Me.
God is the ONE Who Empowers Me.
To the People of God from a Man of God.
In the Name of the Living God/Allah, STOP the VIOLENCE!
There are very disturbing events going on in our world today, namely the mass killing of people as the result of Sectarian conflicts. Particularly in three historical centers of Islamic culture, Iraq, Syria, and Egypt Muslims are killing one another at an alarming rate.
I am not a Muslim, but as a worshiper of the One True God I am concerned that my brothers and sisters of faith are being killed, maimed, and driven out of their homes. This ferocious warfare is a terrible witness to non-believers. STOP THE VIOLENCE.
The primary issue is the long running conflict between Sunni and Shia that had become the basis for bombings of mosques and neighborhoods in Iraq, Pakistan, and Lebanon. In Syria the Assad regime is pitting the Alawites and other minorities against the Sunnis who are fighting to depose him.
I am not asking anyone to take sides in these conflicts, but asking all to stand up and demand that all sides put down their weapons and STOP THE VIOLENCE.
In Egypt the conflict has been between the military which is Muslim and the Muslim Brotherhood. Both have failed to establish a stable inclusive government. Both are waging a bitter struggle against each other. Both have failed to protect Christian Houses of God. STOP THE VIOLENCE.
In addition stop the struggle between Jews and Muslims in Israel, Buddhists and Muslims in Burma, Chinese and Muslims in China, and Al Qaeda vs. the West in Afghanistan and elsewhere. STOP THE VIOLENCE
Let us declare a non-violent Jihad for Peace.
Let us establish the Framework of Understanding that enables people of different views to understand one another and work together for the good of all. God made us different and wants us to live in peace.
Let us use these differences to enrich our world, instead of being sources of conflict.
