Jews, Arabs and Prayers
    #3179193 - 09/25/04 04:42 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

In Jerusalem, an English female journalist heard about an old rabbi who visited the Wailing Wall to pray, twice a day, everyday, for a long, long time.

In an effort to check out the story, she goes to the holy site and there he is!

She watches the bearded old man at prayer--and after about 45 minutes, when he turns to leave, she approaches him for an interview.

"I'm Jane Collins from the BBC, sir, how long have you been coming to the Wailing Wall and praying?" For about 50 years, he informs her.

"50 years! That's amazing! What do you pray for?"

"I pray for peace between the Jews and the Arabs. I pray for all the hatred to stop and I pray for all our children to grow up in safety and friendship."

"And how do you feel, sir, after doing this for 50 years?"

"Like I'm talking to a brick wall."

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has to do with politics, does it not?

Whatever the topic of debate, it belongs in S&P. It has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with Spirituality\Religion.

Guess you missed this part, "I pray for peace between the Jews and the Arabs."

Regardless, it's silly to bicker about where this belongs. In case you didn't notice, it is a joke and the thread will die quickly...

So can I start 50 threads a day here filled with poetry pertaining to the conflict? Most people would say that God/Religion is the cause of most wars, so can we discuss my theological beliefs in here?

You can discuss your theological beliefs as long as they have some relevance to politics, activism, or law.

Saying that this is "About" politics is like saying it's "About" masonry.
