YES-YOU-ARE THE MESSIER!
Well; I do clean up my room when I have visitors; no need for name calling.

I have found this letter regarding the recent events. It has been published by the Iranian leader directly.
I think it suggests a good way to find out about Islam to the people of west.
there you go:
In the name of God, the Beneficent the Merciful
To the Youth in Europe and North America,
The recent events in France and similar ones in some other Western countries have convinced me to directly talk to you about them. I am addressing you, [the youth], not because I overlook your parents, rather it is because the future of your nations and countries will be in your hands; and also I find that the sense of quest for truth is more vigorous and attentive in your hearts.
The histories of the United States and Europe are ashamed of slavery, embarrassed by the colonial period and chagrined at the oppression of people of color and non-Christians. Your researchers and historians are deeply ashamed of the bloodsheds wrought in the name of religion between the Catholics and Protestants or in the name of nationality and ethnicity during the First and Second World Wars. This approach is admirable.
By mentioning a fraction of this long list, I don’t want to reproach history; rather I would like you to ask your intellectuals as to why the public conscience in the West awakens and comes to its senses after a delay of several decades or centuries.Why should the revision of collective conscience apply to the distant past and not to the current problems? Why is it that attempts are made to prevent public awareness regarding an important issue such as the treatment of Islamic culture and thought?
My second request is that in reaction to the flood of prejudgments and disinformation campaigns, try to gain a direct and firsthand knowledge of this religion. The right logic requires that you understand the nature and essence of what they are frightening you about and want you to keep away from.
I don’t insist that you accept my reading or any other reading of Islam. What I want to say is: Don’t allow this dynamic and effective reality in today’s world to be introduced to you through resentments and prejudices. Don’t allow them to hypocritically introduce their own recruited terrorists as representatives of Islam.

Take a peek at the image below:
If you follow the "light" you can see it emerges from a small fountain and bounces off the Moon, then to the Sun who is hold our DNA in its hands (Research how DNA is mutated by cosmic radiation or GAMMA rays... now you know what the "G" stands for...our DNA is altered by the Heavens). This light finds its way into the cave... remember the Allegory of the Cave? Our perception of this reality involves the bright lights in the "Heavens". You notice the Peacock in the image? It is the Peacock Angel and the Double Headed Eagles...duality of the archetypes creating our collective consciousness (Joseph Campbell, Jung). Eagle = Input or Unconsciousness and Peacock = Output or Consciousness (See the word that resembles senses). Light is Electromagnetic which we are surrounded by (Did you know light can carry messages to the brain?).
Ladies and Gentlemen,
We are really in a bad place and TIME... unfortunately TIME is false here and there is no measurement of it. We are prisoners trapped by our own selfishness (We will never end our existence and the SYSTEM knows it). To be free in this system, understand the GRAND ARCHetypes. Once identified, you will be able to see with your own eyes this INTELLIGENCE revealing its thoughts and desires. I can tell you right now that it is DEMONstrating its negative side of the Great Mother (Altruist). It is creating a collective consciousness of selfish intentions, greed, self gratification, a sense of not being appreciated for all its given us. There will be more death and destruction in this reality until Lucy decides to switch its attention to another archetype. Hope this shed some light on the situation we are in.
What is the biggest danger facing religion today? One could make an argument for declining numbers or morality debates, but Rabbi David Rosen says there's something else that looms largest.
The International Director of Interreligious Affairs at the American Jewish Committee, Rosen spoke with HuffPost Live's Alyona Minkovski during the World Economic Forum in Davos about the major challenges facing religion today.
"The most dangerous thing for religion is when it's married to political power," Rosen argued. "When it's an instrument of political power then it betrays its own message."
