Seen in the picture below, is terrorism’s new face. It is described by one of my favorite reporters, Vicky Nanjappa, in his article Lashkar, ISIS and the Chechen Terrorists and deserves careful scrutiny. Vicky describes the new face of a potential World Of United Terrorism, partially thanks to Obama’s support of terrorism by his poorly timed withdrawal creating chaos. And this chaos resulting in the destruction of all America’s solider’s have fought to achieve over 13 years of fighting, an opportunity for freedom in the Middle East. George Bush surely read Natan Sharanky’s book The Case For Democracy: The Power Of Freedom to Overcome Tyranny And Terror; Obama either doesn’t read much or has another agenda.
WHO IS RIGHT? Who is Right and who is Wrong in this world wide battle between Freedom and the Caliphate of Islam? In my opinion, we all know the answer, if we look inward. It is those who look outward, with visions of power and greed that know only one word, War! Most great leaders, who had faith in God, said look within to find God and his truth. If you do so, you will recognize that we are all human and as such imperfect. You will recognize that the word of any “prophet” could only be the best impression an imperfect person could share. You will recognized that you don’t want to kill your neighbor; you want to live in peace. You will recognize that there is enough bounty to enrich the lives of every person on Earth and care for the planet, if the goal was to do so. You will recognize that all the systems of religion and government are there for the powerful, cruel, and greedy whose “genius” is to lead others to slaughter their neighbors so the leaders might achieve their visions. The ONLY truth is simple, “love thy neighbor.” If instead of accumulating money, we were to accumulate “gold stars” for each person we helped in our life’s journey as a businessman, doctor, lawyer, politician or ditch digger, it would be a better world! What do we really need? Do we need to own an Island and a Jet? Is it not better to have happiness and reap the joy of the seeds we have sowed by creating the only value that has meaning, the enriched lives of others and the planet?
Why do Americans, in a recent survey, prefer Cockroaches to Congressmen in their homes? It is because in our hearts we know the truth about leadership, all of it!
There is a simple answer to all our problems but we have killed our neighbors in its denial for thousands of years. That answer is that the truth is within a heart that loves his neighbor as his self. Words spoken by many religious leaders but denied in their “practice of religion itself!”
So, who is right and who is wrong? Should we have a Caliphate or Freedom? The answer is simple, there is No Answer from outside only from within. If you follow ANY teaching, Islamic, Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, Communist, Republican, Democratic, Kingdom ….. You are looking outside for a leader who will draw boundaries in the sand and lead you to war.
If humanity and the Earth are to survive, it is time to recognize that if God is all powerful he will speak to our hearts when we turn inward without the teachings and messages of “leaders” who are always, in my opinion, false prophets. There is one truth only, Love Thy Neighbor As Thy Self, after all we are all children of God and by so doing, prove our love for God.
The world “Leadership”, as we know it historically, needs to be redefined. You see, if there are no boundaries we call MINE and not YOURS, then there is no place to lead to and no need for leaders. Leaders don’t lead us to success they lead us to protect our imagined wealth and another’s hoped for poverty. They do not lead us to greatness, they lead us to war, death and division.
When we learn to live united as God’s People, without leaders and shun them as much as we have shunned “false prophets” then we will possibly find truth. Then the Caliphate, ISIS and the Chechen Terrorists will be as meaningless as any other flag rallying for the death of its neighbor. We need to erase all these imagined boundaries, recognize humanity and Earth, turn inward with love and share the resultant joy and prosperity. It is a simple vision but a difficult task because leaders get in the way.
