Greetings and peace to all-

This is my first post in this forum. Please forgive me if I am opening discussion on a topic that has already been posted and is active.

I am a Jew. I have ventured into this forum with hopes of meeting a Muslim (or many, God willing!) who, like myself, are tired of hearing about violence between those of our faiths. It absolutely breaks my heart to read every day of our people hurting each other. I know there are deep wounds on both sides. What I also know is that God commands us all to love one another.

I've made a choice. I choose peace. I choose love. And I would like to hear from others who may feel the same way. We have all been deceived by our leaders and politicians. I feel like it's time we stop listening to the non-sense and begin communicating with each other.

People. That's all that matters. People. You and I. You feel that God has moved you to worship Him as a Muslim? Great. When you're done with your prayers, let's have a meal together. How about our children play together. Isn't that all that matters? That we can live in peace? That our children can play without fear? That we can live prosperous lives that God intends?

I imagine that One Day, we'll all great each other with love and kindness. That One Day, there'll be no more war. That One Day, Jews and Muslims will walk beside each other, friends. That One Day, we'll make this world a better place for all mankind. One Day.

Reminiscent of the
"I Have A Dream" speech by Martin Luther King, Jr.

and Amen to what you say.  I also choose peace.  I also choose Love and kindness.  Are you able to include the followers of Yahshua in your dream?

Shalom,
Caringheart


Let us seek Truth together
Blessed be God forever

This happened in the past when the Jews ran away from christian persecution and came to the Muslim lands for peace and security. I'm sure peace and security will prevail again

Peace can only be attained when one comes to realize this earth is not the end of our journey. We are all created in the image and likeness of God and Heaven is our true home. Fighting for Land on earth is futile because none of us will get to keep it forever.

In my dream, there are no differences between you and I. There are no exceptions...just as God makes no exceptions. He loves us all, and as His children, we should all practice the same.
