Faith Based Diplomacy Yields Results---NOT

The most recent (Jan. 20-26, 2008) issue of the National Catholic Register featured Mr. Douglas Johnston and his invention, the "International Center For Religion And Diplomacy" under the headline "Faith-Based Diplomacy Yields Results". In the too short intervals between the sound of rockets flying from the Palestinian Territories into Israel, the resultant and balancing air attacks by the IDF, bombs going off in every part of the Middle East and the sounds of bullets and explosives killing both directed and random targets, I have failed to hear the sounds of peace or see any useful product of diplomacy by Mr. Johnston's or any other group.

In fact, Mr. Johnston's group, the Holy See and other like organizations are "going through the motions" of peace making, maintaining the pathological illusion that they are being of use. Such persons and groups are wasting the time, resources and, most of all, the hopes of all Christians and Jews for peace.

Why? Because, peace with those who believe in the teachings of Islam is impossible as its inventor, Mohammed, declared that: There must be perpetual war with "unbelievers" until they become Muslims or submit to Islamic rule in a state of dhimitude; That the use of murder, rape, genocide and robbery are permitted, if not required, of Muslims to accomplish that goal; That the waging of military Jihad (Or, at the least, active support of it) is required of all male Muslims until that goal is achieved over the entire world as a matter of their eternal salvation; And that all of the above, and more anti-peace and anti-civilization teachings, are the direct instructions of Allah and may not be diminished by man.

Peace can be had with Islam and Muslims; But, only on the terms commanded by Allah as listed above. Any person who has concluded that enough Muslims will reject the relevant teachings of the Koran (Please see below for citations) to make peace possible on any other basis most surely needs "professional help" OR, at the very least, a reeducation as to the real teachings of Islam and its
1400-history (To this day in such places as the Sudan) of a firm stand against peace on any terms other that those noted above.

To paraphrase: There are many peaceful Muslims; But, Islam is, in every way, anti-peace---And, always causes Muslims to revert to that basic philosophy with derived and violent actions.
