Modern Society

It doesn’t take much to derail our modern society.

“Hydro Tasmania had been importing about 40 percent of the state’s electricity needs from Victoria due to water storages, but the Basslink has been down since Sunday afternoon.

It is believed to be a subsea cable fault about 100 kilometres off the Tasmanian coastline” (1)

Muslims Shield Christians

Muslims protected Christians during a terrorist attack in Kenya by refusing to separate from them and helping disguise them in Islamic garb, witnesses have said.

Reminds me of this quote:

“I am a Muslim and there is nothing Islamic about killing innocent people in Paris, San Bernardino, or anywhere else in the world,” Muhammad Ali.

Maybe time has demonstrated that Mohammed’s intellect and wisdom exceed his skills as a boxer 🙂
