    How could your God the creator of life and nature be so intolerant of the ways of others in this world? To condemn so many people to hell for not believing in your beliefs, to kill or raise money in God?s name to enrich ones own life is the greater sin. With all of the knowledge and wisdom in the world to only take one of books the Bible, Koran or Torah for the truth and answers to the world?s problems is not very wise or holy. Those in power and control should be held to a higher level of accountability for the problems in the world. One should not past judgment onto another unless they are willing to be judged themselves.

    With conflicting morals and values of one-system verses another systems a divide is created. Great fortunes of wealth are made on the exploitation of a political, economic and cultural divide between people. With religious leaders taking the higher ground with their extremist?s views and perspective deepening the human divide. The main role of the federal or national government is to provide physical security for the people within their nation. The government?s policies must keep in balance the role of religion and state as well as corporate and people?s rights within a society. Only by dissemination of knowledge, information, and wealth can a government of a society be responsible to the people it serves.

    For one nation to dictate and control much of the global and military policies around the world often in the name of God is wrong. The great creator of the universal and the spirit of nature and earth would be so narrow minded as those who are preaching the words of God. People who lead us into wars over religious and political differences between nations of people are doing the devil?s work. Only by addressing the internal problems of a nation will there be a change for peace and security at home and aboard. Only by holding the same standards at home and aboard on all sides of the divide will we have peace and security around the world. A transparent multilateral platform must control any military actions taken by any one of the world?s global super power nations against any other another nation.

    Sorry guys, just realized my link didn't work.

    There were 3 sources, though.

    I guess a different search turned up 5.

    Oh well.

    Have we Become our Worst Enemy

    The Cold War was over political ideology communism verses capitalism and the domino theory. We were telling the people on our side the commies were trying to take over the world and they were claiming the capitalists were trying to take over the world and we called it propaganda. Less than 25 years after the end of the cold war we are trying to convert the nations of the world to a democratic capitalist system of government. Since the end of World War II the military battles have been fought with the real wars beginning fought on the economics and political fronts. We no longer colonize nations with armies but economic and political trade agreements that control a nations economy.

    Today with the United States Foreign Policy clearly dividing the world?s nations and people. Between our military actions and the State of Israel?s military actions and the political rhetoric coming out of both nations. Most of the nations of the rest of the world are feeling threaten by these policies and actions. Most Arab people and nations do not have to look to far or deep in their region to see the scars of what a democratic militaristic capitalist system of government can do to the people. The Israel government being the only democratic militaristic capitalist in the region not making a good Ambassador to the democratic capitalist form of government.

    Many of the religiously indoctrinated American Jewish Temples and people are in the forefront of the War on Islamic Terrorist. With a disproportional amount of influence over the United States Middle East policies they are bringing their religious bias into our policies and position. The United States has armed militarily both sides the Israelis and Arab nations to the point of raising the level of tension to insanity. If the people of the world stand-up and condemn the Israelis for their military assassination of Hamas founder and spiritual leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin they are labeled anti-Semites. The Israelis raising the level of tension to the breaking point in the Islamic world in the Middle East and around the world by their military offensive actions. Claiming it is in the name of their national security while endangering everybody else in the world. There is no Homeland Security Agency that can defend and secure the American people while supporting the current extremists policies and action of the State of Israel.
