In today’s world the greatest threat to peace we have is Islamic terrorism.
Their murderous armies are spreading world wide, even to the United States , where many have come legally, but many more have entered through the porous U.S. /Mexican border.
Many see no problem with the number of illegals who have gained access to our country, and many welcome it as a humanitarian project. Many compare it to a time when people came here from Europe for a better life and see it as a way of offering many the opportunities we all enjoy as Americans.
However, there is a huge difference between immigrants from the past and those of today. In the past, most came for a chance to improve their lives and create an environment that contributed to the American way of life which offered life,liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
In today’s environment , that is not always the case.
Many now come to live off our system, thinking they are entitled to our privileges without contributing to it. They have forgotten that with rights come responsibilities.
And sadly, many come to destroy our way of life in order to spread a religion of hate. This wave of hate is mainly , but not always, coming from the Islamic world.
Are all Muslims hateful? Of course not. It has been estimated that about ten percent of all Muslims are extremists. Even if that figure is correct, that ten percent can out number the total population of the United States, and it only takes a few from that ten percent to create havoc on a world wide level.
It is this ten percent that is given the Islamic world a bad name. How can this be reversed and not only spare the world a future filled with terrorism, but create a better understanding of the Islamic way of life?
There is only one group of people who can do it, the Muslims themselves. They are the ones who have to stand up and be counted. Just like in the black community, they are the one’s who need to stop condoning bad behavior. They need to call out members of their own race about their unacceptable behavior.
Bad behavior is bad behavior, it matters little what race, creed, or religion you happen to be. It is time to stop taking sides , if someone is not acting properly they need to be called out on it and appropriate action taken.
No one can do it for the Muslim community, if someone of a different races criticizes them or makes a statement, they are only called racist and an insensitive bigot.
They need to police themselves. This is the only way the world attitude will change, these wars have been going on for thousands of years, do you really want them to continue?
We can all exist in the world community, and practice whatever religious or spiritual belief we have. We don’t need to conquer others and force them to belief as we do.
Many times our own individual spiritual beliefs can change during a lifetime, who knows what you will believe tomorrow? As we gain in knowledge, rightfully so, our beliefs change to accommodate our newly learned information, we need to adjust our spiritual believes accordingly, it is the only way we can grow spiritually.
Let’s create a world where that is the norm.

America is in serious trouble, many no longer realize what values and principles our country is founded on and have strayed from the common sense and creative thinking of our ancestors, how can we fix it?
