“Obama warns Koran-burning would boost Al-Qaeda”
September 10, 2010

It’s amazing how little we know about this, probably because the Western world wants to kind of help forget it. I’m ashamed of my own ignorance of Islam and the Koran. I just know a few little high spots of history and I’ve read a little bit more lately, particularly about the Prophet Mohammad and the history of Islam. It has reminded me a number of times lately how much the Arabs today are speaking almost like the prophets of old against the iniquities of the world and pointing a real righteous finger at the wicked West and its corruption and ungodliness and selfishness. There’s nothing more controversial, nothing that arouses argument more than religion. Let’s love God together, let’s love each other, let’s help each other.
Let’s forget the past and work for the future. We can’t undo the past; we can’t undo the mistakes of both sides in the past and the horrors that were committed in the name of God on both sides. We must live for the present and the future.
