The American dream of a two state solution living side by side at peace is the only viable solution for a peaceful and flourishing Middle East. The values and virtues of the doctrine of Ibrahim A.S. (Abraham) have to be followed to bring religious harmony amongst civilizations. All terror groups have to be dismantled, and the source of those funding have to be throttled.
The three great monotheistic religions are the offshoots of the teachings of Ibrahim A.S. (Abraham), and none of them preach violence, bigotry or intolerance. The verses of the Holy Books are misinterpreted by vested interests to promote hate. The verses referred to wartime strategies are misquoted to peacetime social values.
Muslim societies allow Muslim men to marry women of Christian and Jewish faith, thereby becoming mothers of their kids. How can those mothers be isolated from state affairs where spouses of Muslim lands run matters of the state?
Muslims are the sons and daughters of the Christian and Jewish converts throughout the Middle East. How could there been a conversion without a friendly association. Furthermore, Muslims having ruled most parts of Europe for over 700 years had Jewish advisors throughout the ruling period, which is why at the end of their rule the Jewish community migrated to predominant Muslim lands of Turkey, and Morocco.
Today, the United States of America displays equality, justice and religious harmony where Christian Churches in New Jersey and Washington DC opened their doors for Muslim rituals of Juma and Eid prayers. The United States Congress allowed the Muslim Congressmen to take their oath on U.S. constitution on the Holy Quran. Isn’t that beautiful?
The Holy Quran specifically mentions, that had it been the will of the Lord, the entire universe had been believers, but the Lord does not interfere in human matters, nor is a party in support of any community. The choice to follow the prescribed teachings of the Holy Books is the virtues and values to be honored by the believers of their free will. Coercion is never fostered in those prescriptions. The values of rule of law, diversity and opportunity have made the United States of America, the most powerful nation in the League of Nations.
