Love Your Enemies

I read in the St. Paul Pioneer Press today an interview with the now deceased Abdul Rashid Ghazi who had been trying to start a rebellion to overthrow the Pakistani government in favor of Islamic law. In the article he said this:

"How much money has been spent on the war on terror? If these billions had been spent on us, on basic education, on food, then we would love the Americans. The Americans are not getting benefit from Iraq or Afghanistan. Hatred will not bring you any positive results - hatred from Afghanis, hatred from Iraqis, hatred from Pakistanis."

The Bible says this:

"If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink... Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." (Romans 12:20-21NKJV)

Sounds like a good plan to me.
