Dear Gray,

        Sad to hear you parrot US propaganda.

        Have recently been to Iraq, and have also done much research on Iraq
and, of course, our presentation of Iraq in the media.

        Have generally found that media programming has sunk so deep that it
is impossible to refute, especially for people who are deep
down, looking for someone to hate, and really have never considered
the command of Jesus to love our enemies.

        If you are one of the above, I apologize for disturbing you and
humbly suggest that you pray a bit more and listen to hatred
and fear (however plausibly presented) a bit less.

        If however, you are willing to entertain the notion that our media
and our government can sometimes be false, and that our Lord can be
true, I would be glad to discuss with you what I have learned from my
time in, and research on, the Iraqi people.

Blessings and Peace with Justice
Simon, in the Company of Jesus
