Telling the truth should be news – If it happened, it will be here…

Perspective: Try a little love


Inciting hate is a source of livelihood for many religious and community leaders. In many developing countries, for example, the mullah’s hate speech is what gets food on the dinner table at night.

Re: “The liberation of a Jew hater into a Zionist,” Licia Corbella, Opinion, Oct. 27.

I think everything Licia Corbella tried to say can be summed up in Kasim Hafeez’s words: “Life is just so much better when you’re not so angry and full of hate.”

Hafeez was one individual who managed to change his mindset, but there are many young men who are used as weapons by hate-inciters across the world, maybe because of their disposition for emotional vulnerability. A vast majority of them invest a lot of energy hating, but have never made an effort to research for themselves or to educate themselves about the other group.

Inciting hate is a source of livelihood for many religious and community leaders. In many developing countries, for example, the mullah’s hate speech is what gets food on the dinner table at night.

There is no religion of hatred, nor does any religion or holy scripture teach you to hate others. Are the rest of us willing to educate ourselves and change our opinion about not only Jews, but Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, Zoroastrians and many others?
