Take long bombing break

I’m all for stopping the bombing of Afghanistan during the Moslem month of Ramadan out of respect for our Moslem sisters and brothers. How ‘bout also showing respect to our Christian brothers and sisters by continuing the halt from December 2, the beginning of the Advent preparation for Christmas, to January 6, the end of the Christmas season? Both Mohammed and Jesus, I am sure, would be pleased. 

Also, I’m glad to see American Christians remaining cool and relaxed, in view of the anthrax scare, by keeping in mind those words of Jesus (Mt. 10:28). “Do not be afraid of those (e.g., terrorists) who can kill the body. There’s nothing they can do to your soul, your core being.”
