Who Are Our Enemies?
Have you heard about the attacks? No, not the attacks in Paris. Or Baghdad or Beirut for that matter, the attacks on Muslims. Here’s one such attack. Yesterday in Toronto, Canada, a Muslim woman was attacked by two men while picking up her young son from school. They punched her to the ground while calling her a terrorist and telling her to go back home. That’s’ the attacks I’m talking about here. Muslims are finding the world very unwelcoming these days but is it deserving? Should we hate Muslims?
I have news for you. Muslims are not your enemy. The enemy lurks outside our doors. He is our neighbor, our friend, our family. We know him but we really don’t know him. No border security can stop him because he is already within the walls. In fact, he was born within the walls. He doesn’t wear a turban or even knows the Koran. The Governments promise to eradicate him and all those like him but how? They don’t know him. He blends in. He’s Canadian, French, American. Then what can we do? I would say pray but you don’t believe in God. In fact you protest prayers in schools and think Christianity is the root of all evil. The enemy outside your door is not a Christian but he is the root of some serious evil!
Many pray for peace, I pray for understanding, strength and faith. Understanding so I can understand why this is happening, strength to cope and faith to stand firm in my belief. I wish for peace but it’s just a wish. God’s will must be done. Again, what can we do? Love more, Hate less. Would it stop those terrorists? Probably not but doesn’t hurt to try.
