- Essay - Islam and Tolerance (MideastWeb.org)
"The Islamist use and distortion of doctrine is no different than the politicization of Christianity or Judaism by fundamentalism. It represents a danger that is present in all religions if their ancient tenets are taken literally, but not necessarily the 'core' of the religion as it is accepted today"
Quotes Thomas Friedman as writing, 'The real clash today is actually not between civilizations, but within them — between those Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists and Jews with a modern and progressive outlook and those with a medieval one.' We make a great mistake if we simply write off the Muslim world and fail to understand how many Muslims feel themselves trapped in failing states and look to America as a model and inspiration." 11-02
- Editorial: A Proposal for Peace (LloydKraus.com)
"All wars are caused over land. People fight over land. The solution for peace is a resolution over land. Judaism, Christianity and Islam all believe in the same Creator, the same Ten Commandments, the Old Testament Patriarchs and Prophets, similar beliefs in the Promised Land, . . ."
"The following Peace Agreement would resolve the formidable Issues of Land. The 'structure' of Jerusalem would remain the same. Israel would still be allowed to call Jerusalem their Capitol. No Person is asked to leave where they are living now – or for there to be a change in the 'Current User and Use' structure. Israeli’s living in Palestine would become Jewish-Palestinian Citizens – thus not going against the Promise to the Jewish People. Palestinian’s would have a Written 'Right of Return', although the Power of that Right would stay with Israel ( there could be a one-for-one transfer of people). Can the Jewish People living in Palestine accept the sovereignty and 'fairness' of their new State (The Rule of Law keeps Democratic Countries accepting their new 'Sovereignty' every Election)? There would be a full 8 Year period of De-Militarization to address and solidify real Israeli Peace and Security Concerns." 01-06

- Josephus (Wikipedia.org)
"Josephus (37 – sometime after 100 AD/CE), who became known, in his capacity as a Roman citizen, as Flavius Josephus, was a 1st-century Jewish historian and apologist of priestly and royal ancestry who survived and recorded the Destruction of Jerusalem in 70. His works give an important insight into first-century Judaism."
"He makes references to the Sadducees, Jewish High Priests of the time, Pharisees and Essenes, the Herodian Temple, Quirinius' census and the Zealots, and to such figures as Pontius Pilate, Herod the Great, Agrippa I and Agrippa II, John the Baptist, James the brother of Jesus, and a disputed reference to Jesus. He is an important source for studies of immediate post-Temple Judaism (and, thus, the context of early Christianity)." 05-07
