Good Question. Answers are difficult to come by. Changing the political leadership in the region? Softening the influence of religion on society and politics? Changing the world's financial dealings with the people of this region? It is a complex problem. But the underlying structure of society needs attention, and until each person respects the other person's rights to freedoms of persuing each individual's basic life goals, there isn't much hope for significent change. People need food, clothing, homes, education, and freedom to worship whatever God they choose, as well as the freedom to not worship any God at all. What can we do to help you? What steps do you think the people of the world could be taking right now to effectively end the violence? Are there specific things we could be doing that are not being done? I have ideas, but no one really listens to me. I haven't any power or money, and am only one voice. But when you add up millions of voices like mine, and yours, maybe we can change humanity? I think it all starts with truth, love, respect, and fairness, in families, businesses, religions, and governments.
