Right – Wrong 2018-23

So many groups that have different agendas and thinking!  We are not all right or wrong, just have different opinions of the way things should be in the world.  I think that communication with real empathy toward the other is a way of finding out our differences and, maybe with that, we can arrive at a compromise of thought………

 

Right – Wrong 2018-23

Who is wrong in this world, who is right?

Is it the Jew, the Gentile, the Black or White

Could it be the Muslim,  the Hindu or maybe Shitte,

The Redman, the Yellow or is the one with might?

We all have our differences, but do we have to fight,

With the energy spent to argue it’s all gone for spite.

Isn’t there someone, today, with wisdom like a guiding light,

To lead us to peace from the morn to the night?

So much discord, distain, and dilemma,

That takes away from the peace of the world,

Too many things that color the mind,

Casting shadows on daily mind time.

Evil Personified 2016-44 PART 1

Evil Personified 2016-44     PART 1

 

The other day (about 5-18 or 19th) another plane somehow dropped out of the sky, this time an Egyptian plan that came down in the Mediterranean Sea. It MAY have exploded, they say, but time will tell as to the why it came down.

Let’s say it was an act of terrorism as it has happened before.   I again, ask WHY!

Why does this occur if it is so? What purpose, other than just plain terror, do those that do these acts have for killing so many innocent people? What reason can they intelligently (?) give for doing such a horrendous terrible, ungodly act?

Most terrorism today, is done by extremist people of the Islam faith or so it seems. Not all, but most acts of horror appear to be people using religious type reasoning, or so it seems.

I would rather say that is bull crap. I have read about the words being yelled or stated, “Allahu Akbar”, the Islamic phrase in Arabic meaning “God is the greatest”. Now, I understand that Allahu is the nominative of Allah, meaning “God” and in Islam it is the proper name of God in Arabic. It is usually a battle cry in Islamist extremism or terrorism. It is NEVER mentioned in the Islamic Quran, but it is also used in times of joy, at births, deaths, and in prayers. So, it is known in many usages by Muslim people for various reasons.

After the September 11 attacks in 2001, the FBI released a letter reportedly handwritten by the cowardly hijackers and found in three separate locations on the day of the attacks—at Dulles International Airport, at the Pennsylvania crash site, and in hijacker Mohamed Atta‘s suitcase. It included a checklist of final reminders for the 9/11 hijackers. An excerpt reads: “When the confrontation begins, strike like champions who do not want to go back to this world. Shout, ‘Allahu Akbar,’ because this strikes fear in the hearts of the non-believers.” , To me it strikes disgust and revulsion. Also, in the cockpit voice recorders found at the crash site of Flight 93, the hijackers are heard reciting the Takbīr, or Arabic phrase Allahu Akbar, repeatedly as the plane plummets toward the ground and the passengers attempt to retake control of the plane. I just visited the Flight 93 Memorial in May of 2016 and looked at the planes normal occupants as PURE HEROES….

This battle cry by Jihadist cowards is a corruption of using the name of God (Allah) in the actions of evil. It has NO business, in my mind, in conjunction with perpetrating an unholy act of killing innocent people or any people at all. It is a common saying, but it MEANS NOTHING in relationship to God in this context; PERIOD!!!!!!

God, or whatever word is used to call Him, is the ONLY God of the Universe. He, God, does NOT want His name used as it is done so by Islamist terrorists. Where the common Islamic Arabic expression, used in various contexts by Muslims; in formal prayer, in the call for prayer as an informal expression of faith, in times of distress, or to express resolute determination became so common for use by terrorists is unknown. I say unknown, but it WAS reported to have been used by Muhammad  after a funeral, so it does go back to the founder of Islam.

I have read that the terrorists do use Islam and Allah (or God) as reasoning for their actions. This is another bull crap saying by those that are cowards. They may need justification for their actions and using God as reasoning is their way of rationalization.

Right – Wrong 2016-43

Listening to TV, or reading about the constant horrors of man with the daily turmoil of humans doing horrible things to humans is sickening at times. Asking WHY? does not help, for the answer will not be soon in coming. What is the answer or is there only one answer for peace to arrive for mankind?

 

Right – Wrong 2016-43

 

Who is wrong in this world  –  who is right?

 

Is it the Jew, the Gentile, the Black or White

 

Could it be the Muslim, the Hindu or maybe Shitte,

 

The Redman, the Yellow or it, the one with might?

 

We all have our differences, but do we have to fight,

 

With the energy spent to argue it’s all gone for spite.

 

Isn’t there someone with wisdom like a guiding light,

 

To lead us to peace from the morn to the night?

 

Or are we afraid that He may come — wouldn’t that be a sight?

 

With the predictions of 1000 years of peace without fight.

 

Would we miss the forever horrors of daily blight

 

But in reality —-that would be a delight……………

 

In the meantime, we go on with our lives and

 

Continue to do what we do – Nothing
