On Peace, Violence and Forgiveness


 

In cases of glaring injustice, where there is a CRIMINAL and a VICTIM one has to be careful not to equate the violence of AGGRESSION and CRIMES to the REACTION of the victim who only seeks to SAVE his/her life

It is a far cry from justice to blame and condemn both sides equally; i.e they equate the immoral actions of the criminal with the understandable reactions of the victim

Equating the instinctive response of the oppressed -who have been massacred, humiliated and dehumanized day in and day out for generations, with the aggressive and brutal acts of the oppressor is a severe deviation from justice

Morally speaking: how -for the love of God- could we condemn those who are being slaughtered when they try to push their butchers away?

Don’t we know

A man with a knife

Against his throat

Has the right to push His butcher Away

Some times the only way to sincerely help a criminal is by stopping him/ her from committing more crimes.

There is nothing more helpful or supportive to the tyrant criminals than teaching the man who has been constantly crushed and incessantly raped, victimized and butchered not to defend himself

We can not possibly equate the violent assault of oppressor with the self-protection of oppressed

The ACTION of AGGRESSION and OPPRESSION is NOT the same as the REACTION of SELF-PRESERVATION

Don’t you think that God would look with empathy, understanding, tenderness, love, forgiveness and compassion at those who are severely abused, brutalized, oppressed exploited and browbeaten, so much so that they are forced to react

“Beware of the plea of the oppressed, for he asks God most High only for his due, and God does not keep one who has a right from receiving what is due.” A saying of Muhammed peace be upon him

Our disapproval, teachings and condemnation must be directed and focused on those who initiate aggression, oppress nations, and commit genocide.

The permission to defend oneself (but NEVER to initiate aggression) is given to those who suffer the risk of annihilation and extermination by the One who created them

Who are we to deny those burning under tonnes of blazing missiles, that basic human right?

Who are we to judge their re-actions or intentions, as they tremble under the explosions of bombs?

Who are we to moralise with them as they pick up the limbs of their babies and loved ones?

“To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to fight back), because they are wronged; and verily, God is most powerful for their aid; (22:39-40)

When only the meek, good and vulnerable are taught to forgive, to be peaceful and to turn the other cheek, while completely ignoring to teach or coerce the bully and powerful to cease his aggression and to seek forgiveness, the scale of justice in a society would fall heavily on one side, no doubt favouring the aggressor and the powerful, thus creating total imbalance which inevitably means perpetual loss of peace and harmony.

Talking to the abused about forgiveness before protecting his life and rights, and while he is still under the boot of the abuser is nothing but complicity in the crime.

After stopping the criminal from committing more crimes, then and only then may the abused feel liberated and free to explore the avenues of forgiveness.

Defending and protecting the weak, meek, oppressed and abused by stopping the aggressors from his aggression is the foundation to creating a peaceful and harmonious society.

Justice ====> peace ===> forgiveness

 

“When a man who is honestly mistaken hears the truth, he will either cease being mistaken, or cease being honest.”

I am Sorry, I Let you Down


 

Infused with hope

Bubbling with joy of being alive

Her world, a fairyland

Her dreams, magnanimous

Her trust knows no boundaries

Her life, a rainbow of many many colours

Her love encompassed the universe

 

I promised her by the time she is an adult

Wars would be abolished

Borders would be deleted

Poverty would be a myth to ponder upon

Cruelty would be a poignant chapter in human history

Hate would be a thing of the past

I told her, evil would be gone with no return

Earth would rejoice in lush compassion

I told her passion would bloom in every heart

Man would love and give without constraint

I told her she would help make it so

 

I thought I knew, little did I know!

I lied

 

Now, I stand before her in humble silence

Head bowed down with guilt and shame

How can I explain?

 

Change


Change is one of the fundamental laws of universe
 
No change means stagnation, means no movement, means no space no time no existence, means ∅
 
The best evolved are those who are able to adapt to new circumstances, namely CHANGE
 
Like everything in the universe from the micro to the macro, every thing moves in orbits within orbits within orbits… such is a spiral… Thus our souls… Upwards back towards the Source ❤️

Can you see their souls dancing
 
Can you hear their supplication
 
Can you feel their hearts melting
 
As they praise the One Sublime
 
Can you hear your heart humming
 
Can you see your soul swaying
 
Can you feel your stunned adoration
 
Would you now pray with them

 

It was a perfect sunny day, blue sky, absolutely still, on top of the Great Orme in LLandudno, I remember watching a flock of birds flying and swaying in the distance, I was captivated by this mystical, beautiful most harmonious dance.

Their melodic prayer struck deep my soul. In baffled ecstasy I began praying with them, I hear you song, I hear your prayer, your God and mine is One, I said

Their mesmerising dance persisted along with mine for a long while, flying high and low, stretching miles away then drawing back near, with my heart swaying in elation and supplication

Then suddenly, and as I was still praying with them and telling them how grateful I am for this joyful prayer, they started landing and before I knew it they encircled me all around

 Stunned I wept of joy   ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

Supremacists For “Equal Rights” ?!


This is some excerpts from an article by Lynda Burstein Brayer a Jewish “israeli” lawyer who has represented Palestinians in the Israeli courts. This article exposes the most sinister side of the Jewish state, a side so dark and so well hidden from the eyes of the world which if known and understood people would realise that promoting “coexistence” between Jews and Palestinians and luring Palestinians with an alleged “solution”  of “one democratic state” with “equal rights for all”  is not only promoting an impossible illusion but it is actually an act of betrayal of the oppressed of the highest order.

This article exposes the IDEOLOGICAL SUPREMACY on which the separatist  Jewish state is founded

Quote:
“The late Professor of Biblical studies at the Hebrew University, Shemaryahu Talmon, explained in a lecture to Catholic Christian Zionists, that the basic value of Judaism is the principle of separation. He illustrated his point with the binary opposites of sacred and profane, holy and unholy, Shabbat and non-Shabbat or weekdays, and, of course, kashrut, the laws governing pure and impure food and clothing. All of these pairs are exemplars of the underlying opposition of purity and impurity with purity being the ideal state.

At that meeting He did not however explicate in detail the source and full effects no doubt in deference to his audience. He left out the most significant binary opposition of Rabbinical Judaism: the Jew/Gentile or Jewish/goy opposition, the consequences of which have always been, and remain, central to Jewish life. Talmon did not explain that the principle of separation derives from kadosh – which is translated as holy, but its literal meaning is “set aside” or “separate from”. The separation that both exists and is demanded for Jews is the separation from the “impure”. God is kadosh and His people must be kadosh too. This is the significance of “chosenness”chosen by God to have the existential quality of purity. The Jew is pure because he possesses a soul – – nefesh in Hebrew.

The purpose of all Jewish ritual is to sustain the state of purity of the Jew. Jews are commanded to do all in their power to avoid being contaminated by what is considered impure. In contrast to Jews, goys or goyim, the latter having the same dictionary meaning as gentium, people, fall into the category of the impure because they are not born with souls and are therefore, existentially separated from God without any possibility of “closing the gap”.

Hence in the Jewish lexicon the term goy has a pejorative meaning while gentium does not. This is the fundamental reason that the Jew is not required to the treat the goy as an equal because, according to Judaism, he is not equal. In fact, the goy is considered as cattle because cattle do not have souls. The goy is therefore not fully human. In this essay I shall only use the term goy for this reason.

This existential distinction between the Jew and the goy is reflected in the absence of a Jewish universal moral code, an absence which is not found within either Christianity or Islam. Judaism’s moral code is characterized by its particularity: it only binds Jews vis-à-vis Jews, not Jews vis-à-vis goys. The most outstanding exemplar of this system is that a Jew is not bound to save the life of a goy if saving the life requires the use of electricity or travelling in a motor vehicle, such as an ambulance, because such activities are forbidden on the Sabbath as they are considered forms or work, and a Jew may not work on the Sabbath. a Jew may do so for another Jew according to the law known as pikuah nefesh which translates as saving a soul.

A Jew not only may break the Sabbath to save a Jewish soul, he is obligated to do so. Pikuah may be translated as to take care of and to oversee, and nefesh means soul: because goys do not have souls, pikuah nefesh cannot be applied. In addition, another exceptional phenomena of the Jewish moral code is that it does also not make truth binding upon the Jew with respect to the goy. There are only two instances where it is recommended that a Jew ought to tell the truth to a goy: when there is a danger to his life, or if it is in the interests of the Jew or the Jewish community.”
