Yes, of course God's justice is the ultimate justice. Actually it is a pity Bin Laden takes up the case of the Palestinians (in particular), because his association tars the issues somewhat.

My point was simply to show that no single human is wholly evil.

Baha'u'llah and Shoghi Effendi also write about the necessity of suffering for the purging of humanity from its worshipping of false idols. Generally great suffering is needed to induce this kind of change. When I think of my love for my fellow humans, it is so painful and frustrating to see them suffering more and more, yet still unwilling to embrace Baha'u'llah's message.

The question is simply how much more pain will we go through before we change? Change is happening, slowly, but my mind boggles to think how slow the change is. I dread to think of the suffering to come.

I'm sorry if my tone comes across as vitriolic, I've had a somewhat upsetting day.

Much love,
