This week has seen France call for U.N troops to enter Syria has had Chinese and Russian forces running joint military exercises. U.S. lawmakers added 1.1 billion to new air force programs and the continual building of army bases with japan the latest country agreeing to a new base of over 9000 troops.
Tensions and the threat of total war throughout the Middle East loom greatly.
We increasingly see that these conflicts are now becoming more and more about religion or so the press and those pushing the conflicts would have us believe. The war on a terror is the result of extremist actions and we should not judge a whole group by the acts of a few.
Religion has no place in politics, politics should be the act of administration and business for a country and its people, faith and religion should be governed by the church, synagogue or mosque or any other religious group a person wishes to be member of, it should stand separate from political goals and ideals.
This sadly is not what we are seeing or have ever seen. The press would have you believe that anyone out there who has different views from those of the Christian faith is a “wanna be suicide bomber” and that they wish to attack you in your own home, we know this not to be true but most get swept along with the propaganda.This propaganda resulting in conflicts that see the deaths of brothers, sisters ,mothers and fathers.
History shows us that we have been down this path before. Groups of Christian knights rampaged through the holy lands capturing land and gold all in the name of God and the church. Today the same is occurring this time under the banner of democracy, land is being grabbed and the gold is black. These wars are not religious they are about greed, grabbing the oil and other resources while we can, gaining control of regions before anyone else can beat us to it. These conflicts are purely political but those in power and politics would have you support them under the guise of religion.
The more we travel down the road of religious suppression and separation of the faiths the bigger the problem we create and store for ourselves. We see a rise in nationalism throughout many countries, Europe and the U.S becoming more and more state controlled, Religions are becoming polarized and the idea that one faith has more worth more than another becoming main stream. All sides need to take responsibility, all sides need to see the problems with in.
There are always two sides in a conflict if only each could make more of an effort to understand the other maybe we would not being seeing scenes of violence and hate on our streets.
Muslims Protest against war.
In turn these problems can force the people of minority groups to feel threatened; this fear can push them to the more extreme sects and groups of their religions. These groups radicalize these people then openly protest or attack the people they perceive as a threat.
This self-perpetuating circle needs to be broken or we face the threat of hurtling head first into a conflict that could easily become the end of us all. All sides all faiths need to take a step back look at the situation we all find ourselves in, look for solutions and find peace.
We see a world with serious problems a global plan to have us all living under a single government all of us serving the same masters, we should not be fighting each other we should be resisting the trend of globalization, we should protect, share and teach others of our beliefs and customs.
We are all human we are one species our race and diversity is our strength not our weakness don’t let those greedy for wealth and power take this from us, unite.
this is propaganda !
