Words of Truth are Timeless

“…In order to secure their power and to rest at heart's
they have armed the Durzi to fight the Arab;
Have instigated the Shi'i against the Sunni;
Have incited the Kurd to slaughter the Bedouin;
Have encouraged the Mohammadan to fight the Christian
-How long is a brother to fight his brother on the
breast of the mother?
How long is a neighbour to threaten his neighbour near the
tomb of the beloved?
How long are the Cross and the Crescent to remain apart before
the eyes of God?…”

~Khalil Gibran (1883-1931)
