I saw on a TV station this morning this question on a news banner. “Is the US winning the war against ISIS?” This question is erroneous in my opinion. Why?
In a previous post reference below, I explained how people draw other people into their problems same a cat uses their cat paws to drag their prey. In my opinion, the majority of the victims of terror are Muslims. Oh yes, Christians, Jews, etc. and innocents on 9/11 are victims too. However, by far, the majority of the victims who have and will continue to suffer the most casualties of terrorist have be Muslims in the Middle East.
The US will never win the war against ISIS in the Middle East. The Muslims themselves are the only ones who will the war when they get fed up with seeing their sons being manipulated by propaganda and demagoguery of sacred duty. It would be wiser if they would focus on their own lives as their sacred duty, not only for themselves, but for their family and their posterity, their trees of life.
Fight your own case with your neighbor, and do not reveal another’s confidences. (Proverb, 25:9)
Where your own interests are directly involved you should press your case with all the energy and skill you can muster and that you should carry the fight to the neighbors or friend with whom you have your disagreement. The point would then be that others should not be involved in your dispute and their personal relationship with your opponent compromise or impaired. There should be a direct and honorable confrontation, and resort should not be had to devious and cowardly maneuvers in which others are used as cats’ paws. The converse would then be that you should not consent to being so used, thereby divulging the confidences which another has reposed in you. (Proverbs Mc Kane)
There is another King Solomon Ecclesiastes wisdom saying about the power of unity to overcome the present terror in the Middle East.
Two are better than one.
Because they have a good reward for their labor.
For if they fall, one will lift up his companion.
But woe to him who is alone when he falls,
For he has no one to help him up.
Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm;
But how can one be warm alone?
Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him.
And a threefold cord is not quickly broken. (Ecclesiastes 4)
