Fake borders

The first time I visited Europe it was in the year 1987, I was only 12 years old. It was a 40 days bus trip from Beirut to France. Before that, in the year 1986 I visited by relatives in the US. I believe that these two trips shaped my personality… To be open to the outside world...

In 2005, I visited France this time at 30 years old. I was fascinated by the concept of “no-borders”, I was in Grenoble one morning and we decided my sister and I to go to Torino in Italy for launch. One night I was in Paris and we decided with a friend to go to Amsterdam…

Then, it struck me that the aim of global terrorism and the Bin Laden &Co is to stop people from getting together freely. They want people to stick to their given geographical territories; they want to prevent them from knowing the other and reaching the other and therefore hate the other. That is a diabolic plan!!!

Borders mean nothing. Countries mean nothing.

The only one that has a meaning is the human being.

Good for you seeing the world is the best thing to do. It opens you up to how varied our world is. When I am able I would like to travel the world. Check out my blog.

I agree with this 100% the fewer borders we have, the more our chances for lasting peace increase. When people get to know each other on a personal basis understanding increases. Borders (and labels) only play into the hands of those who would repress and suppress knowledge.

Ya Laury, to state the obvious, borders only exist in our minds and on color coded maps.
