Not One World
There really is a clash between civilization as exemplified by Judeo-Christian values including tolerance, pluralism, equality of rights for women and the Islamic world. I read today of Muslim insurgents committing yet another massacre, this time in Pattani, Thailand. One of the victims was an eleven month old girl who surely did not know whether she was Muslim, Buddhist, or Christian and her death and the wounding of another ten month old boy in the same attack reflect the benighted depravity of nihilism afflicting those Muslims committed to Jihad. The Associated Press story of the incomprehensible violence may be seen here from The Vancouver Sun:http://www.vancouversun.com/news/Insurgents+kill+including+11monthold+girl+teachers+attacks+southern/7681168/story.html. Until the sanctity of human life becomes enshrined as a religion's first principle then it will never be compatible with either Western or Eastern values that properly cherish beings as obviously innocent as these babies.
