The way people of different communities of the world are at loggerheads with each other, you can soon hope to see the conflict extending to an unknown territory where Jesus or Allah reside today.
On a popular demand from the warring factions of earthlings, the Gods of the two communities – Christianity and Islam – might have to come out in the open to prove their superiority.
As Allah and Jesus are being dragged into this battle, a Muslim Ad in Jerusalem screamed: ‘Jesus Was A Slave To Allah.’
But what is the reason of this extreme hate among humans? The so-called ‘war on terror’ that America began over a decade ago in an attempt to weed out Islamic terrorism is today about to burn every home that belongs to these two communities – at least.
The day America decided to attack Syria to fight out the Islamic State militants in that country, a new phase of animosity has erupted between Muslims and Christians.
The U.S. politicians speak out openly against Muslims. For example, Rep. John Bennett said in a public gathering that Islam is a cancer in the U.S. that needs to be cut out. Local Muslims in the U.S. are reacting sharply to such hate speeches and actions against them.
It’s not only the Muslim countries that are against the spate of wars initiated by the U.S. Even the countries that oppose U.S. violence are targeting Christianity as a whole.
Christians in China, for example, are facing an increasing severity of government crackdown, as authorities are targeting churches in an attempt to check the growing dominance of Christianity in the world’s most populated country.
Humanity is the biggest and the purest religion. Any organized religion that believes in any identifiable God keeps people away from people by promoting religion-based groups. And organized religion has always been the cause of the most heinous crimes and killings in the world. Can we adopt only humanity as our religion? ~ Rakesh Raman
In another dimension, Muslims are facing more persecution in countries where they are struggling for their rights. Muslims are now facing a new phase of neglect under the Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which formed the government in India in May this year.
If the current phase of hostility among people of different religions is any indication of the coming World War III, the war of the 21st century will not be fought only between security forces, but it is expected to involve every person on every street of the world.
Meanwhile, the protests have come to the American streets. As the U.S. supported by its Arab allies began airstrikes this week against the Islamic State fighters in Syria, America is facing a series of protests back home against its decision to begin a new war.
