“The unbreakable bond between love of God and love of neighbor, and the fundamental contradiction of resorting to violence or exclusion in the name of God”. this is what the Pope Benedict XVI said to the religious Muslims leaders and academics in Jordan. A truth that is so many times forget in the Middle East, The sadly violent Holy Land. Benedikt XVI told about cultivate for the good, in the context of faith and truth, the vast potential of human reason. Reason as God’s gift to men and women that, again said the Pope, is emboldened to pursue its noble purpose to serving the mankind, giving expression to our deepest common aspirations and extending, rather than manipulating or confining pubic debate. Reason and faith in God can lead to understanding or at least to some kind of dialog and avoid violence and war. The formula of  Love of God, love of neighbor and an open reason to talk and try to understand before began to fire, is great. The problem is the will of some people and Big Interests that obscure the reason and sometimes make difficult to see clearly the Light of God in the Holy Land.
