Exclamation Tahloube, is your family ok?

Haven't seen you post here the last couple of days. I hope your family in Palestine is OK and safe. My prayers are with you and your family and with your people. Hope all is well.

This conflict is only harming people. We pray for it to end, and hope your relatives survive the terror. Good luck and our best wishes. Jim

I actually tried praying last night. Didn't work. Maybe I should be more patient?

We're all going to die. Believers should welcome death, it is heretics alone, who should cling to life.

No?

Most "believers" welcome the death of others.

Personally, although I am a militant atheist, I cannot deny or begrudge the appeal of religion to the dispossessed.

^ That's a tough disconnect to overcome, isn't it? "You go on ahead to nirvana. I'll stay behind and clean up the mess."

I am sure someone is stealing her land as we speak, but who really cares?

Hey, praying never works, and that is its beauty. If it worked then there would be people praying for bad shit. In this case, you can pray for an end to the conflict and not worry that your prayer will have tilted the outcome. All I want is for the whole conflict to become recognized for the futile bullshit that it is and then be ended. And I know my prayers are going to go unheeded since I prayed to no one in particular that the Israelis and Palestinians would just wake up and cut the shit. But, it is the thought that counts, right? And I genuinely don't wish any harm to anyone in the area, and, since Tahloube has told us her relatives live in the area, I specifically don't wish for any harm to come to people we know of who are in the area.

Don't read too much into stuff - the situation there is unbearable - to me to hear about more fighting and finger pointing, and, I presume, to those who live there. Lets all pray for it to end. Maybe if we do nothing more than pray to the wall for it to end they will run out of supplies to keep it going. Jim
