Hello soupers, I have been putting this down while doung other things and had got parts in the wrong places, my excuses if you have been reading it I have put it in the right order now.'
I am not an extremist, though life is most extreme I try to look at others viewpoints.. I had a shave today, and It seemed surreal That I was removing white hair from the same Cheeks that only grew dark hair not so long ago.. I rememberd being in Germany, I worked for a short Time with some 'extremists' these men were Libiyan, probably Gadaffi's workers I'm not sure..? They got round to asking my 'religion in an upstairs room' there were three of them It was in Eberbach am Neckar..One of them was an Imam Abdullah was his name, I said I was a Christian although not a devout one 'which at that point in time was true' I was inwardly asking God to give me the right words to say here' I asked them who they believed in the answer was Allah and Mohammed is his prophet, and what do the Jews say I asked? That there is one God and Moses is his prophet.' And the Christians? There is one God and Jesus is His prophet.' At this point I said to them had these men met each other, considering their different viewpoints would they have taken up weapons and started beating each other or would they sit down an converse as gentlemen? They would have talked like gentlemen was my answer , so I said let us do the same! Later that week the other two Kahlid & Mohammed came to I and the immam with copies of my contract showing prices they had rifled my van 'and demanded more pay' I was concerned for my wellbeing at this point..' however Abdullah stepped toward them and said do not harm this man..' I guess because of the words God gave me in the upstars room, I have much to thank God for.!
