I have the complete version of this incident, written by a Muslim
brother somewhere in my Archives.
As a Franciscan and a Christian, I feel uneasy about the violent conflicts in the Middle East, Europe, and on our soil. I feel highly concerned about the frequent reports (and, yes, we need to be aware of the propaganda factor) of innocent civilians being killed or made homeless and forced into harsh refugee situations. Some accidental deaths of civilians and severe dislocations seem sadly unavoidable in warfare, but is our nation doing everything it reasonably can to value and protect such lives?
