The New Yorker magazine reported in its current issue that, “The administration of President George W. Bush is planning a massive bombing campaign against Iran, including use of bunker-buster nuclear bombs to destroy a key Iranian suspected nuclear weapons facility.” That statement was widely reported in yesterday’s news and is of such dire importance to the survival to the whole human race that I am astounded there has been no worldwide expression of outrage. Is it not obvious to everyone that the use of nuclear weapons is an insane and suicidal act?
I say to you my dear Muslim brothers and sisters, people of America, and citizens of the world; this madness must not be allowed to continue, it must be stopped. This grave issue, ultimately threatening all life on our planet, should be sufficient to unite us all, no matter our disagreements on various other matters. Nuclear weapons have no place in a sane world. Given this publicly revealed threat to use nuclear weapons by the government of the world’s most powerful and influential nation I fear we must in all seriousness ask the question, “Has something happened to cause the human race to become insane?” As an early step in human society’s return to sanity the billions of human beings who make up world society should first petition their governments to take an unequivocal and unwavering public stand against the use of nuclear weapons by any nation, and every government in the world must take whatever action that is necessary to successfully ensure nuclear weapons are never used by any nation as they support the united will of their people.
