in every humanbeing there is a degree of terrorism,for example saul of tarsus was one of them.in Christianity there are:catholicism,Greek ortodox and protestanism.in prostenism there are:Liberals,conservatives,independent,fundamentalism and militant fundamentalism. Muslims are the same has different branches and not all are terrorist. i believe that history showed Christianity as Crusaders and colonizers but is it like this? also History has shoeed Muslims as terrorist but ist like this? Every one is a sinner and and in somedegree a terrorist,but thank to God that there is a savior to all named The Lord Jesus Christ and there are servants of God in every country to punish the evil of terrorism(rom 13)
"and when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies,then know that the desolation therrof is nigh."(Luk 21:20)
"behold the day of the Lord cometh,and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For i will gather all nations against jerusalem to battle;and the city sall betaken,and the houses rifled,and the womenravished;and half of the city sall go forth into captivity.then shall the Lord go forth and fight against those nations,as when he fought in the day of battle."(Zechariah 14:1-3).
Jerusalim,Jerusalim,Thou that killeth the prophets,and stonest them that are sent unto thee,how often would i have gathered thy children together,even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings and ye would not.behold,your house is left unto you desolate.for i say unto you,ye shall not see me henceforth,till ye shall say,blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord"(Matt 23:37-39).

there is an arabic christian satelite TV(Evangelical)who daily explain to muslims how to be saved by a born again coptic priest who at least has thousand of converts who got baptized by him and who daily we are hearing testimonies of muslim converts.this week they put the famous evangelical pastor who for years has debated Ahmad Deedat the strongest muslim evangelist in Africa(now he is dead) and awoman with her husband who are living in France has offered themeselves to continue debating for the muslim cause and they call every week the tv station for this reason.few month ago aborn again pastor(Muslim backround) is giving a daily lessons in arabic to muslims saying the truth directly and lovingly.the whole middle East is speaking about these things.God is doing wonders through his Church and need real concern and continued prayers that God may intervine in our region.lately i came through a satelite Tv station from cyprus evangilizing the Jews (Jews converts are directing this),praise the Lord by this only can hope for real peace in this region happens
Last Week during Easter Season 2 Satellite Tv stations plus a regular one have put 5 days of Billy Graham s preaching(Lebanon and the Middle East)in Arabic voice translator(second coming-forgiveness-resurrection-Jhon 3:16),the advertisement was daily in Lebanon s Newspapers...in the same month hundreds of thousands of the SAmaritan s Purse Gifts were distributed in Lebanon
Lately i saw a documentery film about the Mission work of the Orthodox Church in Ethiopia and i was shocked by their zeal of spreading the teaching of the Nicene Creed of 325 to Muslims and heathens and how thousands of converts they still have till this day and i was praying in my heart that many of the orthodox people may see this film and turn back to the real Gospel and leave behind the injuries of their history from Muslim invasions in the Middle East and Russia and Ethiasim in Russia and the millions of Martyrs because of their Faith.
15 years ago while i was having changes on a 100$ the told me with confidence,"do you know why this dollar is spreading all over the earth and everybody use it" i replied with i don t know and he answered me back saying"because they wrote on it (In God We trust)
"and judgment is turned away backward,and justice standeth afar off:for truth is fallen in the street,and equity cannot enter.yea,the truth faileth;and he that departeth from evil maketh himself aprey:and the Lord saw it,and it displeased him that there was no judgment"(Isaiah 59:15-16) in Lebanon the anti-syrians want the uN international judge court to make judgment on all the assasinations that has happened the 18 months ago starting with prime minister Rafik Hariri.Gmmayel was assasinated the night before the UN meeting for this matter.in summery Lebanon is headed to be more free for speech without assasinatons backed with the free world but some dictatorship thinking still holding this backward.also Lebanonn is a ground for battle between(syria,Iran in one side and US and Europe on the other side)may be we are going to have some freedom of peace or we are headed to that great war in the region
Catholithism has been for about 1600 years and the Muslims for about 1400 years and they both numbered almost Milliar and a halph poeple.in their History there was big wars(crusades and others)and small dialogues.the New Pope lately has spoken harshly on Muhammad Quoting a greek orthodox Emperor and the responce in the Middle East was burning 5 orthodox churches in palastine killing a catholic Nun(Italian),then he apologizes as he respects them.some bishops flew and talked with him to be more linient because catholicisim in the Middle East are seen now alike as george W Bush.so the point now is what do Christians (protestant and Catholics)offer to Muslims?wars or dialogues,which way may win some of them to Christ.let s be realistic,in many countries and espacially in the Middle East,Muslims and Christians live side by side and only conversation and testimony may convert one to the other,was not this Chist s way with(Nicodimos,Samaritan woman and others and he never carried a sword to Rule By)
