YOU KOW YOU ARE GETTING OLD WHEN

no matter how many articles you read u still can't understand the never-ending battle between the Sunnis and the Shiites or vice versa so neither side gets insulted. It has been going on since the 7th century, but seems to have exploded when we invaded Iraq in 2003, as well as since the so called "Arab Spring," which seems to have turned into a bloodbath and a firestorm.

It is even hard to know who to root for, since we don't fully understand their differences.

It would be nice if all people,  Muslims of different persuasions, Israelis and Palestinians, as well as blacks and whites and gays and straights, and all peoples of different beliefs could just all get along.I think that was the point of John Lennon's "Imagine."

Like the man himself, who was killed for no reason, we have a long way to go.

Bye for Now,

Bill
