COMMENTARIES

Richard Edmondson.net: Solving 9/11–Christopher Bollyn by Richard Edmondson


Richard Edmondson.net Are the Jews Crazy? By Ariadna Theokopoulos


***** Richard Edmondson.net: The ‘Jewish Covenant with God,’ According to Pope Francis by Richard Edmondson.     {The Quran is a secular scientific approach to heavenly religion. Heavenly religion is not a pagan or polytheistic religion. The Quran tries to correct the misconceptions about God and heavenly religion that were deviously impregnated in the original Torah of Moses and the original Evangel of Jesus that follow the true undistorted creed of Abraham. The Quran defines God as the most supreme form of creating, designing lawmaking energy that created the Universe and mankind. It is not humanoid. It designed laws of peaceful coexistence and equitable, reciprocal economic sharing and giving. It bestowed logical, rational, analytical intellect, with unlimited capacity for knowledge on MAN to be able to prudently interpret, extrapolate and adapt the divine laws as an earthly constitution to regulate human life on earth. As such God does not make choices. But logically and rationally Mankind in its experience of discerning between good and bad learnt to describe those who follow the just, fair and equitable divine laws as good and favorable people, and those who act against them as unfavorable. Thus it is not Jews, Christians or Muslims, it those who uphold the divine laws of peaceful coexistence and the generous, reciprocal, equitable economic sharing and giving as observed in the celestial laws regulating the existence of stars and planets of the universe.

“Practical Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse”

This newsletter provides what is missing in the US mainstream media and what the American public needs to learn about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. We hope you never fail to make the connection between APPAF’s reported articles and the cause and effect of the Palestinian problem and the vicious Israeli occupation as its illegitimate heinous perpetrator

It follows the Admonitions of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson:
“Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people” – John Adams – Second US President
“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” Thomas Jefferson

We also invite you to visit www.APPAF.org website, and send us your feedback.

Please don’t forget that Palestine is as much of an American problem as it is a Palestinian and an Israeli problem.
