Missionary, Political & Violent Activism: Pieces of Same Puzzle

Islamic Caliphate
Last week, Canada suffered two terrorist attacks (in 48 hours); Jerusalem suffered yet another one resulting in the death of a 3-month old baby; the Negev suffered another one; the White House saw yet another security breach and New York was stage for an axe terrorist act.  There are no coincidences. These attacks were coordinated.
The US has warned about Jihadist attacks against western targets - Australia, the UK and France raised their level of alert and took preventive measures; but, in spite of it all, terror proceeds. Are politicians doing enough to protect us?

US State Dept: Policy of Reducing Israel to "Historical Proportions"


"We don't need Israel for influence in the Arab world. On the contrary, Israel does us more harm than good in the Arab world. (...) We can't negotiate about the existence of Israel, but we can reduce its size to historical proportions."  -- Henry Kissinger

The above quote is part of a December 1975 memorandum of a conversation that took place; in Paris, France; between the US Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, and the Iraqi Foreign Minister, Sa'dun Hammadi.

Men Writing a Letter - Gabriel Metsu

                                                             Turn every jewel in the light
                                                             and see where it glitters.
                                                             In my heart is a certain shrine
                                                             filled by your presence;
                                                             there you are a sparkling amulet.
                                                             I can live without life,
                                                             as a rock beneath the dark ruins:
                                                             but who wants unshared oblivion?
                                                             A crystal touched with sunlight
                                                             can glow beyond its borders.
