"Terrorism": The Word Itself Is Dangerous
John V. Whitbeck
The greatest threat to world peace and civil society today is clearly "terrorism" - not the behavior to which the word is applied but the word itself. Since the word "terrorism" (like the behavior to which the word is applied) can never be eradicated, it is imperative to expose it for what it is - a word.
For years, people have recited (often with a wry smile) the truisms that "One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter" and that "Terrorism, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder". However, with the world's sole superpower declaring an open-ended, worldwide "war on terrorism", proclaiming that this "war" has only just begun and promising to persevere until "victory", the notorious subjectivity of this word is no longer a joke.
Terrorism and Tea: Creating From Everything is not a light-hearted view of the terrible attacks on civilians around the world. Rather, it proves that creating from everything is a leader's responsibility.
I wanted a radio program sharing the impact of a terror attack in a tourist area of Turkey in juxtaposition to leadership. I knew that Coaches Training Institute's Helen House and the Linden Tribe were in Turkey at the time. I got what I asked for and what I got was something very different than I imagined.
12 January 2016 a suicide attack in Istanbul's Sultanahmet Square killed 11 people; tourists and injured 14. “The softest of soft targets” writes NY Times correspondent, Andrew Jacobs in an article that I encourage the listener to read.
It’s no longer political; it’s personal. Maybe that’s an evolution of terrorism needed to raise awareness and activation; no longer seeing terrorism as something separate from us; once it's personal, we are all in; accountable for how things play out in our world; in the world.
My guests are Helen House, Abeer Al-Qadi and Steve Page from Dubai. What's important is their voices; they are part of Turkey’s first Co-Active leadership program with the Coaches Training Institute. As a leader for CTI, Helen House - writes, “Yesterday, there was a bomb in Istanbul. There was some hopelessness, fear, a deeper commitment to creating peace in the air. Today, we sent 21 Leadership participants into the world to put Leadership into action. They created magic and miracles! Now there is more hope, love and belief in the human spirit rippling out from Turkey.”
This program brings a deep curiosity: how has the world changed for them and how have they changed for the world?

There are many societal upheavels in the world-- financial and political chaos, wars & rumors of war, record breaking weather and natural disasters. These all point to the last days as described in the Bible. One sign that is specifically mentioned to occur shortly before Jesus returns for His church is the increase of terrorism. God does not want you to give into fear. He has promised protection! Listen and be informed and inspired!
In light of recent events and my heart goes out to those and their families who have dealt with tragedy in San Bernadino, CA, Paris, and of course those afflicted worldwide. This idea of 'Terrorism' is a very hot topic and has been for the better part of 20 years and more here in the US. This podcast is dedicated to those who have lost their lives in 911, and other recent events as well as their loved ones. I truly believe the only solution is Peace and Love.
Vibrating Peace and Love to the best of my consciousness level,
My guest tonight is Sue Undheim, we talk about the events in San Bernadino, CA, the connection to ISIS, the differences between "standard" terrorism and the differences that ISIS appears to be utilizing to outpace the world's defenses.

Yesterday 14 lives were lost due to senseless violence committed by two individuals who had no other purpose in mind but to instill terror into the minds of these people in San Bernardino. Within an hour of the shootings the PC Police started their efforts to defend any chance of this being terrorism and wanted to shift our focus to simply gun control and why it's all republicans fault. Now we know more. Listen in today to hear about the facts we know now, and where this leaves us as a nation.
