Once we discover within ourselves the common ground of unity among all diversity and start to live it in our daily lives, we will have come a long way towards realizing the ultimate truth of humanity. We can go far beyond the concepts that bind and limit us to see who we truly are.

Cruz has moved us one step closer to a fractured democracy. While his words are certainly scary for Muslims, they pose a serious threat to all Americans. The Republicans' inflammatory rhetoric this election cycle has done something remarkable to this country in a very short period of time: It has turned this country into a tinderbox.

When we are motivated by a love for the transcendent values of God, Torah and the Jewish people, our differences bolster us in the face of assault. But there is no such love among Jewish activists who work to punish and demonize Israel on the world stage as our enemies look on gleefully.

I strongly feel that we as African-Americans should not only look at voting as a right here in this country, it should be a MANDATE that we go out to the polls and vote.

Let us remind ourselves that we are Africa, the continent is in our hands, nobody will fix it or blow our trumpet without a set agenda.

Yusuf Islam / Cat Stevens

If the real intellectual and heart-cleansing message of Islam is not publicized or promoted, then the field is left to the belligerents and deadly aspirants of Armageddon. Why do beautiful things have such a hard time being noticed? Can't we try a bit harder to get back on that "Peace Train" again?

Fear Cannot Be Our Motivation To Unite

Dr. Michael Laitman

The Paris attacks have prompted people of all faiths and views to urge unity as a cure for terrorism. I agree that unity is a cure for terrorism. What I am less content with is that terrorism is the reason for unity. As long as fear is our motivation to unite, in the absence thereof we will also avoid unity.

I know that the Church has committed untold amounts of suffering and evil in the name of Christ. (There is no religion, philosophy, or worldview, for that matter, that hasn't, all to greater or lesser degrees of distortion).

The Million Man March showed that we could come together and love each other. The legacy that what we established on that day needs to be analyzed, because if we can do it for a day, we can do it for a week, a month, a year, and that is the beginning of a brand-new reality of a Black life.
