Constructive Engagement in Governance as an Alternative to Jihad

Writing on this Blog - Note to Syria's Children VIII, September 10, I urged Western and Arab youths encamped with the ISIL to go home - to leave the ranks of the ISIL and to return to their communities for a chance at peace. I followed up that Blog with: On Consideration of the Naive Youths Duped Into the ISIL, September 15, in which I made a case for the naive youths among the ISIL be given notice before the final destruction of the group.

Yesterday, before the international stage at the United Nations(UN), United States(US) President Barack Obama, in reaffirming America's lead to achieve global stability and security and declaring war upon ISIL, also admonished you the youths to leave the battlefields of the the ISIL. Now you have been duly warned. Go home.

Go home and re-establish yourselves within your communities so that you may contribute to constructive engagement as to your governance. It is a legitimate alternative to Jihad.

Your anger that Bashar al-Assad be punished for crimes against the Syrian children and people, is deeply shared. The current Syrian regime will be held accountable. The gassed children of Syria will have their justice.

So, go home youths - go home, away from the evils of the ISIL. Go home to a place where your productivity could rightly be utilized in establishing the systems toward your better governance. Go home to ensure that governance is inclusive of all the people by the people.

The brutal violence the ISIL and other bullies have brought to wrought upon the international community cannot and will not stand. Their direct contributions to global instability retards human  development at a time when resources would best be served fighting health issues, ending huger and enforcing equality. To you the youths of the Levant and beyond, I beg you to leave ISIL's battlefields and to go home. The opportunity for you to constructively participate in your governance is neigh. Say no to Jihad. Embrace inclusiveness and stability.
