“Extremism Only Makes Things Worse”


As I was looking for inspiration tonight, after a fun and peaceful Shabbat, I ran across the amazing video above, and a few interesting articles.  My brain is trying to understand it, and I really don’t, why not just live your life, and let other people live theirs.

“The Islamic State; Saudi Arabia. In its struggle against terrorism, the West wages war on one, but shakes hands with the other. This is a mechanism of denial, and denial has a price: preserving the famous strategic alliance with Saudi Arabia at the risk of forgetting that the kingdom also relies on an alliance with a religious clergy that produces, legitimizes, spreads, preaches and defends Wahhabism, the ultra-puritanical form of Islam that Daesh feeds on.”


Then I see the other side, human beings helping fellow human beings, we need more of this in the world.

“We approached this family holding a large bundle of blankets and we assumed there was a baby wrapped inside. We gasped as they unwrapped this precious little one only week old. We dug through our bags to find an ergo, which we were saving for an extra special family. I definitely had to hold back the tears on this one. It felt amazing to know this bundle was safe on momma’s chest where they both could feel comforted.” -Suzanne S.
