Hi Louis and all of you,

Thanks for your email.

To me an "attack" most often has bad intentions behind it.
Whereas a "debate" just as often can have good and honest motives as bad
But as I said, I am not up to anything negative, I just want peace on this
Planet. Peace between the west and the Midlle East. And that is that.
If my non-violent movement is a verbal attack or just an attack - well then
it is just that persons view, which claims it, - and not mine...
Sometimes people feel, that their egotism are being attacked - and/or they
feel, that their cultural bias towards people and cultures they do not know
anything of - are being attacked.
Other times people just talk a lot, because they want attention...>:-)
But I am not from USA or any english speaking country, and that maybe
explains this view.
Else I agree a lot with you.

M. Sufilight..with ehmm...some rugrats doing verbal exercises...
