Here is the dilemma for those of us not only living in the western countries but our African sisters and brothers.
We can rant and protest against Obama and Africom interventionism and expansion, but on the other hand, are the Islamist groups the lesser or greater of the two evils?..and this does not even take into account the opportunist third element, Israel, or the fourth element, China.
I avoid the term Islamists because it is used by so many non-Muslims to justify the oppression of all Muslims.
There are millions of Muslims in our world. many of them Black. Just as there are millions of Christians in our world, many of them Blacks. The only dilemma, if you choose to see it as such, is the great challenge of sustaining the Will to Struggle against so many --- the majority of terrestrials --- who are asleep.
But, no, there is no dilemma. There is only the Struggle.
The Struggle with the mere handful, some not Black, who fight for Love. And the Struggle against the many, some Black, who fear Love and resist it with all their might.
The Struggle is Why we were manifest in this sick, twisted, corrupt, insane age of immorality --- Why we have been blessed [if you choose to call it that] with mortal life.
We Exist to seek to be Perfect. Yet, the dilemma, if you choose to see it as such, is that we are One. Hence, I cannot be Perfect until We Are Perfect.
So, we Struggle, and we fall because of the dead weight of these vessels of flesh within which we are embodied. But, still, we Struggle. because that is Why We exist.
