“Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.”

Peace  is the greatest weapon for development, that any people can have.”

“We can begin today by taking the first steps across the bridge of mutual co-operation and understanding among Middle East peoples. The journey ahead will be long, but the way is open. We need brave travellers.”

A Time for Peace

September 24, 2016
 a75fccb2e589b3392632b216bec3b29f

There is a time for everything,

and a season for every activity under the heavens:

2a time to be born and a time to die,

a time to plant and a time to uproot,

3a time to kill and a time to heal,

a time to tear down and a time to build,

4a time to weep and a time to laugh,

a time to mourn and a time to dance,

5a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,

a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,

6a time to search and a time to give up,

a time to keep and a time to throw away,

7a time to tear and a time to mend,

a time to be silent and a time to speak,

8a time to love and a time to hate,

a time for war and a time for peace.

Ecclesiates 3

“Few (of us) will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man (or woman) stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, (she or) he
sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”

Is It Possible to Defeat Terrorism?: HOW to (as far as possible) combat the scourge of terrorism world-wide

But again, why France? Part of the answer is the dominant feeling among those 50 per cent unemployed youth that there is no future. This absence of tangible hope is the first cause of radicalisation.

Instead of the common expression “the radicalisation of Islam” we should probably be saying the “Islamisation of radicals”, even when this radicalisation proves to be minimal and shallow.

Isis offers each of these disenfranchised youth an imagined glorious future in the paradise of warriors, allowing them to strike back at what they believe is the origin of their misery.

But there is only one promise kept at the end of the day – death.

This also explains the ultimate expression of the terrorist threat; “lone wolves”, ideal warriors, nearly impossible to detect.

Though they may not be as isolated as we believe, they have become the main actors of what we can call, in the…
