People of the Book

أهل الكتاب‎ ‎ ′Ahl al-Kitāb: is a term used to designate non-Muslim adherents to faiths which have a revealed scripture[1] called, in Arabic, Ahl-Al-Kitab (Arabic: الكتاب ‎ “the people of the Book” or “people of the Scripture”). The three types of adherents to faiths that the Qur’an mentions as people of the book are the Jews, Sabians and Christians.
In Islam, the Muslim scripture, the Qur’an, is taken to represent the completion of these scriptures, and to synthesize them as God’s true, final, and eternal message to humanity. Because the People of the Book recognize the God of Abraham as the one and only god, as do Muslims, and they practice revealed faiths based on divine ordinances, tolerance and autonomy is accorded to them in societies governed by sharia

My apologies for so long between posts. Not only have things gotten VERY busy around here what with hosting a conference on changing completely all the training we do here in theater and a no-notice project to prepare a briefing on Insider Threat for the Chief of Staff of the Army but I have done that while trying to fight off a bout of the flu.

We have been fortunate considering the recent unrest here in our little corner of Kabul. Other than being able, barely, to hear the big VBIED (Vehicle Borne IED) that took out the South Africans there has been nothing noticeable here. The internet, however, has been much abuzz. Below are some of the best thoughts I have seen on the issue.
