    Jim–how can an agnostic have faith in any reasoned answer? Aren’t all questions to U–per se–rhetorical?
    The order in the Universe wants to know
    To Be Complete
    I just have to say
    what I have to say
    from my heart
    in a joyful way,
    in a song
    free of stress,
    singing Source
    to the world,
    to raise consciousness
    to a new level of peace
    where love can abound,
    in my contemplation of being
    what me I can be,
    such enthusiasm I dare not contain,
    for it will burn from within,
    if not released
    to the freedom of expression,
    such ease
    as words finally ooze
    through my smiling soul,
    from God
    to your listening ears,
    in being such a willing conduit,
    in that moment,
    I am complete.

    Dear Mark,
    Your speech was indeed refreshing and enlightening. I have for some reason or another never been around Jewish people in America. I am disappointed that I can only know about them from the media. However, I really support them and am very interested, though as I read so much about everything in the world, I am never in contact with Jewish people. I am agnostic, which just means I don’t know what is going on and I am the last person to give my opinion on religion, but I can’t figure out the reason people hate Jews so much. Jews mind their own business, you don’t kill people if they disagree with you, so,what is the problem? My opinion is that the Muslims are stuck in a time centuries ago (even Christianity was stuck here until recently)and it is quite simple – If you don’t pray to the same god I do, die. Acceptance of others that have a different religon is very new. Fortunately, the world has accepted it mostly, but some do not. I thought your speech was very well made but it really is useless toward a group that has put logic away for belief. I really don’t believe they will ever be satisfied until Israel is gone. They just play games. I am an American and I want to support Israel as much as possible. I understand and for me, you are preaching to the choir. However, I hope you convince others. I am agnostic, but long live Israel.If I have anything to say to violent Muslims it is this: Why does god need your help to make everything right? Didn’t god create the entire universe? If so, why does god need you to do things to alter his universe. Can’t he have done this himself? Also, how can forcing people to bow and pray to Mecca glorify god? You can always force a person, such as at gunpoint, but that will never change their heart. No, you can only force an action but you never, ever change a person’s soul. A person’s choice is by themself, soul only is by choice. So I ask, how does making a person do actions by force ever glorify god. The answer is, it cannot ever do it. God is only glorified by choice, whatever religion you choose. That is the beautiful thing, you can force a person to do the motions but you can never change a person’s soul. I think it is very egotistical (in other words, think terrorists) that think they can serve god by forcing people into the motions. To think god needs you to force others is quite a egotisical belief. Are you really so mportant to god’s plan? If so, who told you? Some people should just get a harmless hobbie.
    Anyway, I enjoyed the speech.

    Congratulations on your new independence! Keep talking, because I rather like being informed about the history and back stories around the issues.

    Your written comment at the top of this page reminds me of another one:
