Clinging to the possibilities of coercion/violence as our emergency means of domination and/or control of others --- poisons our potentials for the enjoyment of personal and communal integration and integrity with our enemies. So long as we trust coercion/violence as our emergency means of domination and/or control of others --- more than we trust God who is Love --- we cannot learn to trust our perceived enemies who are (like us) clinging to coercion/violence as their own means with which to achieve unilateral security and invulnerability in our own un- trust-worthy presence. The above tragic facts about our disintegrative ways of living together on planet EARTH --- have been illustrated in the many enduring conflicts between/among Jews, Christians and Muslims down through the centuries; e.g., within Europe, Great Britain, the United States of America, Palestine, Israel and South Africa.
