Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Jihad Is Not Muslim Killing Muslim


it was prophet wise Soloman who said
'hatred stirs up conflict, but love
covers over all wrongs' please reflect
Proverbs 10: 12
how in Lebanon Islam is hate perverted
Lebanese Sunni Muslim men incited queue
register their names for Syria in jihad
mosques to wage war on neighbour Muslims
prominent Sunni clerics counter call

on Lebanese men to defend cause rebels
in Syria by sending weapons or join in
combat rant 'It is a duty for any Muslim

who is able to reach our Syrian brothers
to enter Syria to defend its people, its
mosques and religious sites' in holy jihad?

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born
