I pray and hope upon hope that the world realises that 99.9% of the Muslim faith is good in their hearts and minds, it is in the main a peaceful religion that has itself suffered persecution over many centuries.
I am a Christian and NO Christian wants revenge for the sake of revenge and not upon those peaceful and good Muslims of the world. But we are in the "Blame" culture and are too fast to point the finger of scorn at those we find it difficult to understand, especially those of other, some may say more radical beliefs.
But even the Christians have done some heinous crimes against your peoples, history shows this as it does against our own in Ireland. We have short memories and even shorter fuses.
Terrorism, no matter where it comes from must be seen to be the way of evil and in no right persons mind the way forward to a more peaceful and tolerant world. We have to understand one another and find out what we have to offer one another, especially in times like this.
As the Prime Minister of Great Britain said during the election, "Education Education Education", this has to be the way we must peruse and work towards for a better future for all, no matter what colour, class, creed, or social standing.
Of course the perpetrators have to be brought to task , then to be tried in a court of law for their actions and if found guilty and the appropriate sentence handed down, to them all!!
But to blame a religion for the actions of a few is insane, again I pray that those right minded in society today will be those who can save us from the mass hysteria of the media and those bent on revenge for the sake of revenge, will prevail and "Common Sense" will rule the day.
Since Tuesday all of the world has to be seen to be both calm and meticulous in their approach to where we go from here. No one is perfect, except those deities we believe to be our "Fathers in Heaven", those who set the laws for our religions so long ago. For those who still believe are those who will be seen as the leaders that will bring US all forward into a better and peaceful life together, from now and for eternity.
We must now pray for all those who lost their lives to horrifically and those who have been left grieving, to give the support where and when we can, to all those effected by this terrible act.
I pray for US ALL
