In its campaign 2004 The Year of Atheism, launched by the Prophet RAEL on December 13th 2003, the Raelian Movement is discovering more and more that Americans do not agree with what George Bush tells us where he says war is unfortunate but necessary to rid the world of evil, implying that God approves of Americas policies in which thousands of innocent children are killed in Iraq, where the US and British soldiers are torturing Iraqis and where hundreds of US coffins are coming home all this while the people in Muslim countries are indoctrinating little children that Islam is the only true religion in order to retaliate.

The current Year of Atheism campaign is giving more and more people the courage to speak up against the politically correct who immediately call atheists unpatriotic or other such nonsense. A growing number of Americans understand that belief in a god removes all responsibility for ones actions and humanity places itself in a position of being powerless pawns in some sort of divine game being played out. The Raelian Movement and other atheist organizations teach that we are responsible for our actions or lack of actions. Humanitys future is up to humanity, not a god.

It should be obvious by now that violence can only bring more violence and that love will bring only more love. We should be very aware of how much violence in old religious texts has shaped the world in which we live. Jesus taught us that the Old Testaments eye for an eye was wrong and he replaced it with love your enemy. George Bush, who claims to read the Bible every morning, somehow missed this most famous message of Jesus and if he really followed Jesus, would lead the world to peace instead of war.

His Holiness RAEL declares: Another big lie is the idea that there is a "war against terrorism". There is no such thing. A war is waged by an army fighting against another army. Fighting terrorism may be a police matter, but not a military one. And that is where education has failed. Because the real weapon against terrorism is education. When a proper education teaches children atheist values of respect for every other human being, the result is that no one is willing to crash an airplane into a building in the name of Allah or any supernatural being, with the false hope of deserving an imaginary "heaven". With an atheist education, nobody need believe in any kind of life after death, and so everyone will try to make this life, the only one we are certain exists, better for everybody. Peaceful citizens need of course to be protected against terrorists, terrorists being people who were already badly educated and who are ready to die for their beliefs by becoming human bombs in the name of their supernatural gods. But this is not a war. It's a matter for the police. The huge military expenses, advanced jets and armored vehicles, missiles and satellites can do nothing against 3 men with a cutter who decide to hijack a boeing 747. It is always laughable to see the media illustrating the idea of war against terrorism by showing military training in terrorist camps. You do not need months of training in para military camps to hijack an airplane with a box cutter! Wake up, it's a cutter not a machine gun! This is a pure campaign of disinformation designed to support the alleged "war on terror" which doesnt even exist. And by invading other countries in the name of this so called "war on terror", killing thousands of innocent civilians, imprisoning and torturing thousands of others, America is only generating a thousand times more terrorists ready to die avenging the death and torture endured by their friends and families. How can citizens of the so-called "country of freedom, the most advanced country in the world, the United States of America, suddenly become war criminals, torturers and abusers? Only because they are indoctrinated by this big lie of a "war on terror" which makes them see all Arabs or Muslims as potential terrorists potentially guilty of September 11 attacks, and needing punishment. It is exactly like the Germans in 1938 who were indoctrinated to hate the Jews so much that a majority of them were ready to help Adolph Hitler put them in concentration camps and exterminate them. Guantanamo looks more and more like Auschwitz and it is indeed a concentration camp where so called "detainees" have absolutely no rights. The imaginary war on terror is creating more terrorists and sadly, the future will prove it. Before this war started there were a few hundred religious fanatics ready to blow themselves up in the name of their god, now there are hundred of thousands all around the Muslim world who hate America as never before. Hatred creates hatred. War brings war and violence engenders violence. "Those who live by the sword will die by the sword ". That's why it is more than ever of the utmost importance to remember what Jesus said : "Love your enemies".

If these words of Christian wisdom from Jesus were applied by George Bush, who falsely claims to be a Christian, after September 11 the American President would not have started a war, If he had really loved his enemies, he would have given more support to Palestinians, received more Palestinians refugees, withdrew the military from Saudi Arabia, canceled the economic sanctions against Iraq which kill so many children, asked Israel to destroy their nuclear weapons of mass destruction (and these nukes are really there), and give as much money to Arab countries as it does to Israel creating more equality.

This would have brought peace and love which would have dramatically reduced the number of potential terrorists. And it doesnt exclude the additional possibility of increasing airport security, but as mentioned before, that is a police matter, not military.

Education and atheism are the most important weapons to fight terrorism. Remember: there is no such thing as an atheist terrorist. Because when you don't believe in god and heaven, you have nothing to die for, and all you want to do is live happily as long as possible and improve the life of others.
