So glad to see such a humanitarian response to the burgeoning Syrian crisis from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, and Bahrain among many-many others. Good thing that there are no Muslims, Jews, or Christians involved or I’d suspect some sort of hypocrisy…
FYI: “You cannot attain to righteousness unless you spend (in charity) out of what you love.” (Holy Quran 3:92)
or: “And if thy brother be waxen poor, and his means fail with thee; then thou shalt uphold him: as a stranger and a settler shall he live with thee.” (Hebrew – English Bible, MT, Leviticus (Vayikra) 25:35)
or, if you prefer: “Hatred stirreth up strifes: and charity covereth all sins.” (Vulgate Bible: Douay-Rheims Translation, Proverbs 10:12)
or perhaps: “If I should have prophecy and should know all mysteries, and all knowledge, and if I should have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.” (Vulgate Bible: Douay-Rheims Translation, Proverbs 10:12, 1 Corinthians 13:2).
Our leadership, national and international, brings shame on all of us. Again. And once again, God, in many aspects, names, and forms is ashamed of us.
