  Subject: [gha] Peace Poetry - Middle East


Religions are based on scripture, which is mostly poetry. So it only makes 
sense that religious conflict must be resolved through poetry, and not through 
politics, negotiation, or war. I propose that all religious conflicts be 
redefined poetically, so that they can be resolved without bloodshed, winners, 
or losers. So let's sharpen our pencils, not our swords; send missives, not 
missiles; and apply our minds to metaphor, simile, rhyme, meter, and prosody, 
but not pomposity, animosity, ferocity, atrocity, or monstrosity.

Best regards,
Hugh Mann
