Is destruction in the name of God a right?

Today I read an article on how the Israeli government bulldozed a Palestinian Mosque in the West Bank. I questioned to myself, was bulldozing a holy site in the name of God a crime against God? In my heart I feel it is a crime. God and Jesus lessons were about love. We should love one another. And any injustices we feel have been done to us, we are told to leave to the Will of God. I have been taking up Middle East studies for the past four years and I still can not grasp why we can not forgive the past and move to the future. On an individual level, I understand the struggle for forgiveness, but I know in my heart spending energy on hating someone and something, makes me weaker than stronger. A few months ago I was thrilled to hear that a decision to start peace talks once again between Israel and Palestine would be placed back on the political table. But then, I was saddened that it took money, which I see as bribery by our government, to bring peace. Real peace does not come with a money figure, it comes from the heart. I feel God is a brilliant artist of logical poetry, if we strive to make our dilemmas with one another to be more simplistic, we can be open to more solutions of peace. It is when we think resolution is not feasible that our dilemmas become extremely complicated. Wild justice rarely gives us the results we want.  I have realized from my own life mistakes and experience that removing ourselves temporarily from conflict can help us reevaluate our priorities and see what we need to do to improve our situation. And above all, communication and respect are very valuable. We must be courageous.
For, “this world, or system of things, will perish just as surely as did the world before the flood.”- Matthew 24:37-9.
    Sometimes to make a stronger foundation of peaceful interaction, we must rebuild our systems of thought and how we perceive our environment. Our present social order is corrupt. We must change this and change this soon, so we won’t be doomed to our own demise. I am a true believer that life is what we make it. I also believe that life is but a dream. What we suffer today will not be what we suffer tomorrow. Everything we experience here on earth is temporary. So we might as well live our best us and learn to love one another. Otherwise, our world will perish.
