This is not unlike believing there is a santa claus. To bad they refuse to read history and fact. Believing that the bible is the word of god is the ultimate fantasy. To bad there are so many who’s life is so empty they must believe in a book that was written by writer’s of fantasy. Not one chapter is even similar to the others writings. Even when they are talking about the same story,time and date! Belief is the drug of the masses. The catholic church backed Hitler, gave protection the the generals after the war, never condemed the murder of jews. It’s all money!

Since when has freemasonary been as, Fawaz Alduaij put it “…the most corrupt religion, a religion that twists reality and has appointed or influenced people to propagandize even down here.” Isn’t that what fundamentalists of any religion do anyway? (The non-religious terrorists blaspheming Allah, the zealous christian’s doing the same with the name of God and Jesus). Obviously the Freemasons Fawaz has come across are a different breed/concept of those elsewhere – this is an irrational interpretation and in complete contrast to all literature readings (and my experiences) of Freemasons and Freemasonary, which is NOT a ‘religion’. Again the ignorant blaming the society / religion and not the irrational, (and even psychotic)fools from within.

Maybe this could be the (or one of many) missing links that the three major monothelogic religions need in order to better understand each other. I’ll be honest, I sometimes feel a bit uncomfortable being around Muslims, but I don’t want to be. Its the conflict in the Middle East and the picture being painted by the media that is the cause of this, and not to mention bad decisions by a small percentage of the Islamic community. Though Jewish and Christians have their bad eggs as well, we just don’t hear about it that much.

Again, I’ll buy the book.

So this is all pointless wittering anyway. The fact of the matter is that human beings will use any excuse, real or imaginary to slaughter each other. Long may it continue; more air and food for me.

BEGINNING OF TIME . NO RELIGION WILL MAKE ANYONE OF

US OR THE WORLD ANY BETTER BUT OUR OWN SELFLESSNESS

AND RESPECT FOR EACH OTHER

LETS FOCUS MORE ON NECESSITY OF SURVIVAL

AND IMPROVED FOR BETTER LIVING CONDITIONS THAN TOPICS

THAT CANNOT BE PROVEN OR SHOULD IT MATTER TO BE PROVEN

WE ALL WILL BORN AND DIE ANYWAYS IN THE END.

WHAT MATTTER THE MOST IS MAKING THE BEST OF ENJOYING OUR

LIVES TO BE AS HAPPY AS POSSIBLE JUST BY SIMPLE RESPECT

IT DONT TAKE A GENIUS OR A PROPHET TO FIGURE THIS OUT.

SORRY IF I OFFFENDED ANYONE OUT THERE BUT WHAT I THINK

OF LOGICAL REASONING IS WHAT MAKES SENSE . ITS UP TO

PEOPLE WHO CHOSE TO UNDERSTAND THE FACTS OF LIFE AS

SIMPLE AS IT IS OR MAKE IT HARDER THAN WHAT IT IS

SO HISTORY WILL ALWAYS REPEAT ITSELF AND FOR WHAT

CAUSE?

I could only pick out a few examples of the issues these three touched on, so I chose a few I thought would be interesting for most readers. He also discusses passages from the Book of Joshua and from the Talmud (where the part about stealing from a non-Jew comes from). Like the authors, I hope the book gets translated soon so it can reach beyond the French-speaking world.

The religion of freemasonry, for which an international meeting of Muslim scholars in the holy city Makkah declared to be enemy number one to Islam in the 1990’s.

That is the most corrupt religion, a religion that twists reality and has appointed or influenced people to propagandize even down here.

Yes, there is bad in a church system, for which many Christians protested, and for which Muslims never believe in anyways. When the USA founders said separation of Church and State, they really meant freedom from Papacy’s hegemony.
