About ten Year after,
I think that what I have forseen is happening.
They prepared a cold war against Islam, and now they are making it a real
I remember that the Vatican have spoken about that also and warned
about a kind of building us.
It is really sad to see how some countries work things in the world, how
they just build conflicts here and there, how evil they can be.
Please read what i have written ten years ago.
Help bring justice peace and TRUTH.

My Dear Friends,
Just those two last months.
We heard about Muslims in Jerusalem taking a room from the Orthodox Chruch
the Holy Sepulchre. We heard and/or some of us saw the Anti-Muslim, and
ant-Arab film worked by HBO "Path to Paradise. We read on many American and
Israeli News papers about Persecutions (Muslim, Christian, Jews or about
fundamentalism etc). Mainly they were accusing our Brothers and sisters the
MUSLIMS!! A lot of us tried to send E amils and chat about those things...
Then we had that thing in Hebron depicting the Founder of Islam, the Virgin
Mary with things that we did not like and we all condamned. Then the Koran
was desecrated, then the question of the Orthodox Church in Hebron, and in
every time the Israelis seem to help and try to intervene to put peace and/or
sometimes the P.A are blamed, the Muslim Palestinians are feared etc...etc.
AND EVERYBODY as always is speaking about it; SOMBODY is trying to PREPARE
THE PUBLIC OPPINON FOR SOMETHING, when the main issue is our RIGHTS is
JERUSALEM, our People there are loosing their ID's, their homes and lands
what remains of their FUTURE...
Do you see, with me, that someone intelligently is preparing something?
Please, try to look on your hearts. We Christians and Muslims, we love each
We lived for centuries in Harmony everywhere. We build together our
aspirations and countries: Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Palestine, Jordan
etc. Muslims and Christian martyres offered together their lives for the
future of our sons and daughters in our home countries.
Muslim and Christians refuse and refused fundamentalism that was feeded
Muslims and Christians want to live in peace with Jews, they have already
lived in peace with them; Muslim and Jews: in Egypt, Syria, Marocco, Tunisia,
Palestine before and after the creation of Israel etc. Christian and Jews:
the West, Asia and the Americas.
We are all innocent of what Extremisms and Fundamentalism (religious or
ideology) did in the past against Jews, Christians and Muslims and
to do today.
Please let us stop that SOMEONE for that SOMETHING that he is intelligently
preparing. We cannot accept to build that NEW COLD WAR AGINST ISLAM. They
our BROTHERS AND SISTERS. We cannot condamn the mass for some fanatic
individuals. We should be fair in condaming at the same time and the same
the JEWISH, CHRISTIAN fundamentalism and name them the way were are labelling
sometimes the Muslim fundamentalists: Terrorism. Some Jewish and Christian
fundamentalism acting as terrorists as well. Just look around you and read
facts on the ground you will find it not only in the Holy Land but also in
the USA and Europe.
We shoud stand with the TRUTH.
Please stop feeding the Public Opinion with things that speak to that SOMEONE
who is tring to build in us hatred and violence, and build in stead
cooperation and sharing.
The Moderate Head of Christian, Muslim and Jewish communities in the
Land (They are the Majority there) are tring to build bridges.
Catholic, the Orthdox, some Protestant and some Christian Communities
trying build trust.
Please, STAND against that COLD WAR against our Brothers and Sisters the
MUSLIMS. Stand with the TRUTH.
