On Christian-Muslim Solidarity
I have found other people living in the desert, from every tribe and every religious practice. The desert Christians were not the only ones to rise up against Constantine's heirs. Deeper in the desert you find Medina, the City, home of the Medina Compact, center of the Umma, a new way of living in prophetic justice and equality. I am living in exile in the spiritual desert with Muslim friends and non-blood kin. We are trying to keep the Empire's bombs from raining down on our people. We are organizing to try and stop the war, end Israeli apartheid, and get U.S. troops out of the Middle East.
