    "...Archbishop Mario Zenari, Vatican nuncio in Damascus, describes the activities of the parishes involved in the preparation for Christmas, despite the bombs and religious hatred. In a Catholic institution on the outskirts of the capital, dozens of children joyfully cut out figures for the crib. In parish halls young Christians and Muslims distribute thousands of hot meals regardless of faith, ethnicity or faction..."

    This is the First and most inspiring message to come out of SYRIA...the entire Muslim World is totally SILENT on the mass murders going on in Syria...MUTUAL LOVE and self respect will surely DEFEAT the war mongers and dictators and may PEACE come to SYRIA...

    BTW My Country for the FIRST time in its history has LIFTED all of the many RESTRICTIONS on our Christians neighbours and fellow malaysians form VISITING JERUSALEM on Christmas...previously there were severely limiting quotas and age limits as well as time limitations etc to CURB such visits..ALL Malaysians share the joy of Christians who can now visit the Birth place of Jesus on this Holy day for as long as they wish in as many numbers as they wish..and be of any age !!

    Malaysia doesnt recognize Israel and we cannot visit Israel under any circumstances.Hence this relaxation ONLY applies to CHRISTIANS....maybe it will be slowly applied to ALL malaysians...

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
