land where the old song “I’d like to Teach the World to Sing” comes to mind, and is now replaced by a request for the world to pray in one harmonious tune.
What is Adopt a Terrorist for Prayer Movement? The approach is really a free for all prayer session, non-restrictive and prochoice for all who wish to participate. Conversely, in this “prayer meeting” there is a chance for all people to work together quietly and peaceably to stop terrorism.
Dr. Bruce Thomas, in the article, “Fighting Terrorism Is Like Fighting Addiction” says, “When under the influence of alcohol, the abuser of his wife and children thinks he is doing right things to manage his household. Likewise, when under the influence of certain doctrines, suicide bombers think they are taking proper steps to defend Islam. An alcoholic’s drunken tirades terrorize a family into appeasement and cooperation. An alcoholic’s drunken driving threatens a whole community. Similarly, inflammatory rhetoric from a terrorist or a sympathizing cleric intimidates peaceful Muslims into passivity and compliance. Actions resulting from this rhetoric threaten the world.”
Send terrorism to detox through prayer? If nothing else is working it could be worth a try. Certainly, no one will hold a gun to one’s head if they choose not to act; in prayer that is.
It’s a dangerous place to be and not only dangerous, but one of the most dangerous countries in the world, according to Committee to Protect Journalists; and, I note that if it is so dangerous for journalists of any foreign country and their own citizens that it would serve as notice for anyone else to pack their bags and high tell it home? Hence going to Libya, having any types of dealings in Libya can get you killed.
Today, the U.S. Consulate in Libya, was set a blaze, and 1 is wounded and another 1 dead in one of the most deadly places to be; and, is runners up to the 10 most dangerous places to be.
Here are some other countries to beware of in case you are planning a trip, because some of these commercials and brochures promise a good time and then are hostile towards anyone who enters their terrain. A word to the wise, check the list, mark it off and go somewhere else. Africa is not a good place to vacation; and if you schedule a mission research the area, hire a body guard and don’t wander off alone.
