In the discussion "Anatomy Of A Lost Generation," I touch a great deal on the Golden Rule, and why today's American Jews have drifted away from it.

  • Actually all Muslim is not a monolithic entity even in one country, state, city, or village (Arab- non Arab), in addition , you can find same in other religions in worldwide many types of religious communities and people, for example: Sunni, kharijites, Shiite, Sofis, prosecutors Salafist, mercenaries, and ignorant, and every society has a non religious like: nationalists, seculars, semi-religious people.
  • Moreover, the game between Sunnis and Shiites has been used in Iraq, and will be ignited as a crisis between the two sides in the Arab countries after Arab spring.
  • I think do you mean Sadam's time, when he used poisonous gas on Kurdish civilians in north of Iraq, and I am highly sure that there weren't logic reasons for that bad actions toward his people, just he was stupid and crazy dictator,
  • Regarding to the war between Iraq and Iran I think it was not between two Shiite sides or even religious or holy war but something else.
  • By the way I have no idea about Azerbaijani - Iranian relationship, but there is new article about the American, Israeli and Iranian relations (Intimate relationships).
  • Finally, I agree that it is not religion that makes people stupid, but nationalism.

The problem I have in explaining Islam to the general public, is that they will think that Dar al-Islam is a monolithic entity.  They are not aware of the great schism that exist between Sunnite and Shiite.  I was teaching English as a second language to Kurdish refugees from Iraq, and as Sunnites, they had great disdain for Shiites.  That is because the Shiite Iraqis were instituting the Anfal Campaign against them, which included using poisonous gas on civilians.  Not to mention the 8-1/2 war between Shiite Iran and Shiite Iraq.  I imagine now that Iranians can go to the Shiite shrines within Iraq.  But Iran just broke off diplomatic relations with Azerbaijan, a Shiite Muslim nation, which has diplomatic relations with Israel.  So it is not religion that makes people stupid, but nationalism.

Comment by Khaled Hassanin on June 13, 2012 at 6:07pm

Dear Tim Upham,

You are right, i am wondering too that the islamic/arab discourse the last hundred years right now especially the Friday sermon, which includes incitement to hatred and Hostility of Jews, but we have to notice first that Islam ,Judaism and christianity have many communities and sectors, for example: in islam sunni, shia, kharijites, sufism ........etc. i mean since alhaji ameen alhussini 1920, as sunni scholars considered that he was represent the kharijites community, after that hassan albanna and his party muslim brotherhood in same approach, so i'll try to clarify all these facts when write " The Sacred Texts in Judaism and Islam between Peaceful Coexistence and Cognitive Dissonance status; Only One Issue is not enough for Hatred and Hostility''.

Comment by Tim Upham on June 5, 2012 at 9:26pm

I will look forward to reading what you have to offer.  I have been writing about the same subject for years.  You can get some sympathetic listeners, and you can get a lot of hostile reaction.  I have also been involved quite heavily with ecumenical dialogue.  It is formidable, when you hear all the time "but it is their religion to kill Jews."  I hear it on this website, all the time.  So we do need more voices speaking reality.

Comment by Khaled Hassanin on June 5, 2012 at 4:16pm

Well, that is correct, and I think the religion in the Middle East is considered the real motive in these societies, because religion is one of the main elements of their cultures, so we need to highlight on the sacred texts that promote peaceful coexistence between Muslims and Jews (for example), then we can help to alleviate the tension between peoples. Therefore, I am going to write article under title: “The Sacred Texts in Judaism and Islam between Peaceful Coexistence and Cognitive Dissonance status; Only One Issue is not enough for Hatred and Hostility”, and I wish if I can find someone to share me in that.

Comment by Tim Upham on May 26, 2012 at 9:03pm

When talking about the Golden Rule, the best way to start is to go into theological teachings.  When you look at the sacred texts of all religions, they will all give examples of how to coexist with your fellow human beings.  Abraham was the first to believe in One God, and so that is the reason why Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are known as the three Abrahamic religions, and they all claim Jerusalem as a holy site.  In the Old City, I could easily walk to the Dome of the Rock, Western Wall, and Church of the Holy Sepulchre.  After that, you can look into the sacred texts, and see what they have to say.  It is from there, you can start to lay the basis for the Golden Rule.  The task from there, is to turn theological teachings into political realties, which is formidable.

Thanks for the invitation and good luck for the website; I can be helpful for translations in French and Spanish free of charge, God bless!

Comment by Tim Upham on May 20, 2012 at 7:43pm

I have been involved with numerous other entities, so by all means I will be involved with this one.  Because new information and insights will be coming out of it.  More true to the concept of think tanks.
