UN War on the West
Reader comment on: The UN Declares War on Judeo-Christian Civilization

The word "war" is a very dramatic word. I think there are more wars being waged on this planet in these last eight years than I can ever remember as a child growing up after two World Wars that seemed back-to-back!
There are now more METHODS of war than before, as well. We now have:"wars of words"; culture wars; virtual wars; religious wars, and embedded in that we have "sectarian wars". For a while, at least here in America we had a "war on poverty", and when we are facing a health related pandemic somewhere it is always framed as the "war against"...a disease or microorganism...mostly due to the necessary militant organized effort that seems to require highly skilled, disciplined "troops", "armed" with KNOWLEDGE and BRAVERY! It is all appropriate, but also a very disturbing APPROACH to all the crises that we as humans face.
What I loved about this article was the use of the term "banquet". In contrast to the term "war", Mr. Meotti, talks about the efforts of Anti-Semitism to call together all those who wish to annihilate Israel, to gather for a "feast" of combined efforts to agree to HATE and BLAME only one source or focus of their whole raisson d'etre...Infidels: non Muslims!
What is my point? It is interesting in the extreme, how the terminology of this present age utilizes the very same words that the Judeo-Christian Bible/Torah-Tanakh uses to illustrate the prophecies for the "times" called, in the Scriptures, the "END OF TIME".
To all of those participating in these very significant "battles" of the heart and mind in International relationships, I would ask that you just be aware of the power of the words you have chosen to frame any of the debates...and then, PAUSE to capture the IMPORT your words will have on your own future.

FREE ALI MOHAMMED AL-NIMR!
Ali Mohammed al-Nimr, a prisoner in Saudi Arabia who was sentenced to death as a minor, faces "death by crucifixion" after a final appeal has been dismissed. He was arrested in 2012 when he was just 17, during a crackdown on anti-government protests in the Shiite province of Qatif. According to the International Business Times, Al-Nimr was accused by the authorities of participation in illegal protests and of firearms offences, despite there being no evidence to justify the latter charge.
