Religious Tolerance as a Challenge – the contra-terrorism only solution

305_Sufism-The_Table

In dedication to all these killed on behalf of God


The Book of Inter-religious Peace in Word and Image is one of the cardinal projects of
The Center of Inter-Religious Peace, Tel Aviv.
The Book is a non-ending saga, which reflects the state of things when concerning religious tolerance.
No religious formal authority was or is ready up to this day, to support the essential aims of the book, though parts of it have been exhibited in various places.
No religious authority, museum of world religions, centers of inter faith,universities or my own academic college , has dared to give a legitimization to its contents.
The contents are logical but not to the irrational average believer:
• The Divine is beyond Time and Space but may be revealed or sensed through the infinite temporal and unique phenomena of the cosmos, appearing and disappearing, indicating the non-graspable immensity of the cosmic dynamism.
• The human being, through civilizations, has been triggered by both the mystery of the ever coming and going cycles and the issue of finality.
• There are as many myths of creation as there were and are people of all races everywhere in all times.
• There are as many myths of afterlife destiny as there were and are people of all races everywhere in all times.
• The human inherent tragedy is that believers of all times, till this spiritual non evolved era – tend to define the Non Definable, to use human imagery in order to relate to the Divine. And still worse tend to grant an absolute moral way to follow and live by.
• Still more tragic is the fact that religious competition among the believers is more in vigor than ever.. One group killing the other one for not following their true gods. In other worse: Tutu, whose god is Tutua, kills Bubu, whose go is Bubui… Evidently this grotesque situation is the story of Homo sapiens / Neanderthal.
• People governing the countries and the correspondent scholar systems do not include the study of comparative religions or the philosophy of religions.
• Multiculturalism is not what we are dealing with here. The theme is far more profound. We suggest that the religions and myths of the human – have a basic common ground though story telling, within time and space – differ.
• Rather than emphasizing the legitimization of multiculturalism – we should teach the common ground of the Spirit of the human: the black man has a black god, the white man has a white god, the yellow man has a yellow god and the red man has a red god. And all these capital races have different beliefs who wish to be dominant.
• Unfortunately every day we witness the ignorance of religious authorities, preaching about the supremacy of their specific God and thus, preaching for the supremacy of the believers of this specific God.
• The Israeli broadcasting has more than one Rabbi preaching supremacy on other religions as Islam or Christianity.
• Needless to add that Islamic and Christian authorities join the policy of the exclusive clubs.
• It is incredible that the great killers of all times are all descendants of Patriarch Abraham, who fathered children from three wives: Sarah, Hagar and Ktora. Each of a different ethnic origin. These three women are actually the mothers of all Mesopotamian people….
• If we check all other biblical patriarchs including the Kings of Israel and including the great prophet Moses – all of them have non- Israelite women or descend from non-Israelite women.
• We recommend purchasing our Book in Amazon, to encourage our activities and to encourage co-operation. We will be more than happy to lecture about these vitally important issues.
• We have decided to bypass formal authorities and address all evolved spirits who reject the idea and the act of killing on behalf of a defined god and wish to collaborate and truly spread the Alternative Spirituality suggested in our book and center.
• The readers may address us through our Facebook site Dorit Kedar.

About Dr. Dorit Kedar

Forced to continuously change nations, cultures and schooling - I had to develop a wider sense of communication, a way of thinking-feeling-behaving which stresses the common denominators. The need to adapt new landscapes and land-souls has taught instinctive means to overcome separatism, prejudices, dogmatic beliefs and suspicions. While looking for the common gathering denominators, I have also increased the ability of perception and individuation. Being constantly in estranged places has triggered psychological processes to turn the unfamiliar into familiar. As an art critic in the Israeli press, a curator, a writer - have always dealt with the otherness, the different and the infinite variety of the Existent. My Book of Peace is the result.
