2 “I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned.” Romans 16:17

3 “But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.” Hebrews 5: 14

4 “I tell you this so that no one may deceive you by fine-sounding arguments.” Colossians 2: 2-4

5 “Palestinians must abandon violence… It's a story with a simple truth: that violence is a dead end. It is a sign of neither courage nor power to shoot rockets at sleeping children, or to blow up old women on a bus. That is not how moral authority is claimed; that is how it is surrendered.” President Barack Obama Cairo, Egypt June 24, 2009

6 “ Much has been made of the fact that an African-American with the name Barack Hussein Obama could be elected President.” Sunni vs Shiite

7 “ For instance, in the United States, rules on charitable giving have made it harder for Muslims to fulfill their religious obligation. That is why I am committed to working with American Muslims to ensure that they can fulfill zakat.”

8 “The Holy Koran teaches that whoever kills an innocent, it is as if he has killed all mankind; and whoever saves a person, it is as if he has saved all mankind.” Qur’an 5: 32

9 Whoever destroys a soul, it is considered as if he destroyed an entire world. And whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world. Jerusalem Talmud Qur’an 5: 32 – “That was why We wrote for the Children of Israel that who ever killed a soul …”

10 Qur’an 5: 32 – “That was why We wrote for the Children of Israel that who ever killed a soul (or human being), except for a soul slain (earlier translation: as punishment for murder), or for sedition in the earth (earlier translation: or other villainy in the land), it should be considered as though he had killed all mankind; and that who ever saved it (or a human life) should be regarded as though he had saved all mankind.”

11 32 That was why We wrote for the Children of Israel that who ever killed a soul, except for a soul slain, or for sedition in the earth, it should be considered as though he had killed all mankind; and that who ever saved it should be regarded as though he had saved all mankind. Our Messengers brought them proofs; then many of them thereafter commit excesses in the earth. 33 The recompense of those who make war against Allah and His Messenger and spread corruption in the land is that they are to be killed or crucified, or have their hand and a foot cut off on opposite sides, or be expelled from the land. For them is shame in this world and a great punishment in the Everlasting Life; 34 except those who repent before you, have power over them. For you must know that Allah is Forgiving, the Most Merciful.

12 “On the other hand, it is also undeniable that the Palestinian people – Muslims and Christians – have suffered in pursuit of a homeland. For more than sixty years they have endured the pain of dislocation.”

19 “There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors.” Hamas Charter Article 13

23 “…when the Holy Land of three great faiths is the place of peace that God intended it to be; when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story of Isra, when Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed (peace be upon them) joined in prayer.”

24 “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.” Colossians 2: 8

25 “In an era when our destiny is shared, power is no longer a zero-sum game. No one nation can or should try to dominate another nation. No world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will succeed. No balance of power among nations will hold.” “No one has superiority over others. No individual or states can arrogate to themselves special privileges, nor can they disregard the rights of others and, through influence and pressure, position themselves as the "international community".”

26 “In an era when our destiny is shared, power is no longer a zero-sum game. No one nation can or should try to dominate another nation. No world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will succeed. No balance of power among nations will hold.” President Barak Obama – 9/23/09 “No one has superiority over others. No individual or states can arrogate to themselves special privileges, nor can they disregard the rights of others and, through influence and pressure, position themselves as the "international community". Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad – 9/23/09

27 “Under the pretext of protecting some of the survivors of that War [WWII], the land of Palestine was occupied through war, aggression and the displacement of millions of its inhabitants; it was placed under the control of some of the War survivors…” Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad UN Speech to the General Assembly 9/23/09

28 “And the goal is clear: Two states living side by side in peace and security -- a Jewish state of Israel, with true security for all Israelis; and a viable, independent Palestinian state with contiguous territory that ends the occupation that began in 1967, and realizes the potential of the Palestinian people.” President Barak Obama UN Speech to the General Assembly 9/23/09

29 Post 1967 Israel controls: -The Sinai Peninsula of Egypt (until 1978) -The Golan Heights of Syria (to present) -Border strip of Lebanon (until 2000) -The West Bank and Gaza Strip (Gaza Strip disengagement 8/05) - Jerusalem (but not Temple Mount)

30 “In 1947, this body voted to establish two states for two peoples – a Jewish state and an Arab state. The Jews accepted that resolution. The Arabs rejected it. We ask the Palestinians to finally do what they have refused to do for 62 years: Say yes to a Jewish state.” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu UN Speech to the General Assembly 9/24/09

31 “Inscribed on the walls outside this building is the great Biblical vision of peace: "Nation shall not lift up sword against nation. They shall learn war no more." These words were spoken by the Jewish prophet Isaiah 2,800 years ago as he walked in my country, in my city - in the hills of Judea and in the streets of Jerusalem. We are not strangers to this land. It is our homeland.” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu UN Speech to the General Assembly 9/24/09

32 “The Almighty and Merciful God, who is the Creator of the Universe, is also its Lord and Ruler. Justice is His command. He commands His creatures to support one another in good, virtue and piety, and not in decadence and corruption. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Speech to UN General Assembly 9/23/09

33 He commands His creatures to enjoin one another to righteousness and virtue and not to sin and transgression. All Divine prophets from the Prophet Adam (peace be upon him) to the Prophet Moses (peace be upon him), to the Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him), to the Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him), have all called humanity to monotheism, justice, brotherhood, love and compassion.

34 Is it not possible to build a better world based on monotheism, justice, love and respect for the rights of human beings, and thereby transform animosities into friendship?

35 I emphatically declare that today's world, more than ever before, longs for just and righteous people with love for all humanity; and above all longs for the perfect righteous human being and the real savior who has been promised to all peoples and who will establish justice, peace and brotherhood on the planet.

36 0, Almighty God, all men and women are Your creatures and You have ordained their guidance and salvation. Bestow upon humanity that thirsts for justice, the perfect human being promised to all by You, and make us among his followers and among those who strive for his return and his cause.”

37 “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.” Colossians 2: 8
