Hope Amidst the Horror

If you look closely you will see unforgettable moments of love and unity amidst the horror. Iraqi Christians fleeing the fanatical “the Islamic state” group in Mosul are being sheltered in the mosque of Imam Ali in Najaf, and Palestinian Muslims, after having several of their mosques in Gaza bombed by Israel, have been welcomed to pray in Palestinian churches. Church bells in Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus, ring aloud in solidarity when mosques broadcast prayers for those who have died at the hands of Israel’s indiscriminate bombing. And more and more Jews and Holocaust survivors (here and here) are courageously challenging Israel’s occupation and siege. In other words, friends, there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic and hopeful.
