The Musings Of A Minor Prophet
The "Land Of Jerusalem" stands at a crossroads.
This Is A Historic Moment.

Have you wondered why the Israelis are doing what they are doing to the Palestinians? Is it because they are naturally an aggressive, greedy, or hate filled people? Or is it because they are living in a deep state of the inner terror of annihilation as a people and as a nation after finally fulfilling a 2,000 year old drean of returning home? Have you ever wondered why the Palestinians are doing what they are doing to the Israelis? Is it because Palestinians are just an evil people and terrorists by nature?

Or is it because they are reacting to what they see as foreign troops occupying their land, demolishing their homes, killing their children, and denying basic human rights? Young Israeli soldiers don't shoot Palestinian children for the fun of it. It is born of deep seated fear. Each time they do, something inside themselves dies as well. They will never be the same. Young Palestinians bombers don't blow themselves up because they enjoy suicide. It is a desperate act by desperate young men who have given up hope of bringing about change any other way. And now, with the escalation, there is revenge.

Until each side ceases to see itself as the "innocent & virtuous victim" and the other side as the "evil demon" ......Until both sides begin to see the humanness of each other; the deep suffering of the other; the legitimate longings and the justified grievances .......Until this happens, the violence will continue and will escalate. Both sides have experienced more than enough atrocities....And perpetuated them.

How much more pain and suffering must both sides endure before everyone wakes up and realizes that THE CURRENT COURSE OF ACTION IS NOT WORKING to produce what each side wants? How many more children must both sides sacrificed to the false gods of nationalism, fear, hatred & revenge; how many arms, legs and eyes lost, before people are willing to change; before the majority of people on both sides WAKE UP AND SAY ENOUGH !!! Both sides claim that the violence is only in reaction to the other side. But all of the outward violence is the product of the inner Violence Of Attitude on both sides.

Until this changes, the children will continue to die.... On both sides....Israelis and Palestinians, as historic brothers and the children of Abraham, have the opportunity to offer the whole world a model of cooperation,justice, peace and prosperity.

The Palestinians can have Justice and the Israelis can have Security. Both can have Peace & Prosperity. But neither will have what they want until they are willing to grant these to the other. Jerusalem can fulfill it's destiny as an International Model of Peace & Brotherhood, governed by its own citizens, or it can once again become a city of desolation and despair. This is it's fate if everyone doesn't WAKE UP - and very soon.

The frequencies of anger, hatred, revenge and fear are being anchored in the land itself. When these stresses become too intense, the Earth will release them. She will tremble and land will roll like the waves of the sea.

She will not distinguish between Palestinian and Israeli; between Christian, Jew or Muslim. All will pay the price and in the silent aftermath, they will call it "The Judgment Of God." This is NOT the fate of Jerusalem, and it need not be a step toward the fulfillment of its Divine Destiny as an International Model of Peace & Brotherhood. If everyone WAKES UP NOW from this nightmare to remember who they really are, why they are here and the Beautiful Vision Of The New Jerusalem, then everything can change in the twinkling of an eye. AWAKEN THE PEOPLE NOW!

Let the Guardians of Light transmute the anger, fear and hatred, And release the tension from the Earth.May The Land Of Jerusalem Be Preserved And May A River Of Light Once Again Flow Out Of Zion & Bless The Whole World With Peace & Grace.
