Historic handshake: Obama greets

Cuba's Raul Castro at Mandela memorial

 

 

wow it giving me chills to see all these different religious leaders praying w each other at the funeral. all talking about peace. and all the big world leaders are there too. i think even the n korean dictator is there.

Wow, I hope it leads to something down the road!  Maybe yes and maybe no.   I never saw a bunch of people who hate each other (under the table) and now they're hugging like ole pals!   Brings to mind the harlot with its riders on top of her!  And the death of this man, Mandela, he's being worshiped by the world leaders as a god.

It shows that you can get every major political and religious leader into the same "room" at a moments notice if the motivation is right.  The more I see of this world and it's politics the more I see the bible being spot on.  Shaking hands, praying for peace and (on this occassion) riding on the sentiments for someone that is greatly respected.  who'd have thought it was even possible to get so many dignatries together?
