    For over 1400 years after Mahamad passed and Abby was killed leaving the people without a rightful leader to be Imon there people have battled over the sharia law and they will continue to fight each other until the end of time unless the right of Imon is satisfied if the three monifism's could meet in the United Nations and settle the right to Imon then the battle will maybe end .

    Let's place Iraq on the back burner for now. I am empathic to the situation in Pakistan but feel it is a situation to get Bin Laden. Its ugly but the amount of our contributions should be based on the Pakistanis giving him up. They know where he is.

    I understand that New Orleans is going to be a huge story this week. However, folks seem to have forgotten the huge arms that the people of Houston Texas opened when other cities said they had no room. CNN should find a way of recapturing the essence of the moment when all was lost but neighbors to the west took care of their neighbors to the east. Houston feels slighted by reporters who have missed this opportunity.

    I was a site manager at our George R. Brown convention center. I wish you could have witnessed the way we had the place set up. Three hots and not a cot but a mattress. Pharmacy, OBGYN care, Dental, Optometry, eighty showers, clothing, etc. Then the largest housing movement probably in U.S. history when we moved folks from the Astrodome and Convention center into apartments.

    There's is a ton more...

    Will the Iraqi's remember how oppressed they were under Saddam ?

    If Islam is really a peaceful (empathetic) religion, then why don't they immediately and willingly move their mosque away from Ground Zero in pure empathy for the U.S. and the victims of 911 ? ?

    Because empathy is not a part of islam, that's why.

    The “What if” “has to admit” answer may be as easy/ simple as the beautiful combined pictorial of the triangles (star of David), semi-circle with star, and cross set in-between a man and woman sitting Indian style. There are only three major differences that separate the Torah, Bible, and Koran (a derivative of which/truly one and the same explained in a different way). It is in identifying the when and how’s (not vice-versa), looking @ the moon and not the finger pointing the way (enter the dragon), and in not letting a few differences get in the way of the truth of the word that was accepted (the awareness that there really is a lord our GOD and that is/was suppose to be the entire point). In the Second World War we were successful allies fighting the Turks (centuries old enemies) and Germans (etc), today (and ever since) we have been trying to make things right without revisiting the time everything changed, went wrong and completely thrown in reverse such as now attempting in using the Turks (now our allies) to lead them (the Arabs) anywhere in a major way. If so many disturbing issues keep bringing us back to the major point of any timeline, then it is there where everyone can find a correlation (reason/ such as the allies breaking a pact). Every time anyone tries to revisit the last time (this point/regardless of reason) those now at war were on the same page someone in the shadows (whom are leading us) throws up a brick wall and says “hey look over there (while pointing)”, or “no you can’t have access”, ETC. The sooner that we conclude that nearly all our faults are the direct result of our allowances the closer to the truth will we become (and the only reason it continues). The future plan of establishing a new world order is not certain. It is incomprehensible when trying to communicate that a few differences which are only the same words spoken in a different way (and/or people) can undermine all the rest. Regardless of any topic once a known most identifiable “something” appears where it ought to be the undeniable facts of its origins and truth of its words cannot be mocked or separated for any reason due to its significance. Everyone regardless of circumstance admits someone is intentionally keeping us at each other’s throats, maybe if we can first all confirm that it isn’t at least the same person (or affiliated people) and then go from there we would all see better results.
