War n Human. Hate is us. Why Forgive?

Do we have a killing gene? We find it so easy to hate.

E-Book: Why Forgive by J.C Arnold

There is a hard law…
When an injury is done to us,
we never recover until we forgive.
A l a n P a t o n


What if our intrinsic design precludes the need for forgiveness?



Abdul commenting on Fitna the video asked

Where are my Jews, my Black people, my African brothers and sisters to denounce such racism, xenophobia, and fear-mongering?

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Edmund Burke 1729 – 1797 One of the foremost political thinkers of 18th century England

Should we perhaps; Accept ourselves, as we are?

IF, indeed we are designed to kill.

Bertrund Russell asked a question “Did the doctrine of hell bring cruelty into this world?”

Forgiveness is related to sin and some say, deserves divine punishment because it is a violation of God’s character .


A German Jewish emigrant:
‘It dawned on me that if I looked into my own heart I could find seeds of hatred there, too. I realised that they are there in every human being. Arrogant thoughts, feelings of irritation, coldness, anger, envy, even indifference – these are the roots of what happened in Nazi Germany.’

Are there any other emotions that can lead to hatred? What are they? What does ‘hatred’ mean? What is it like to feel it? What is it like to be on the receiving end? Does hatred ever feel right and good? If so, when? Does that mean it is right and good?

An African American writer about prisoners:
‘It’s easy for folks who have enough to eat, homes, land, work, to preach about forgiveness. But is it fair to preach it to people living in hellholes, jobless, starving? Are they to forgive the fat well-fed millions who voted for their starvation? Who voted for war? Who voted for prisons? Who voted for a people’s repression? Who wish, in their heart of hearts, that those people had never been born? Should the starving forgive the repression to come, the genocide to come?’
