The letter "notes that Christmas came just after the Muslim haj pilgrimage to Mecca and the Feast of Sacrifice (Eid al Adha) recalling how the Prophet Abraham almost sacrificed his son.
"God's refusal to let Abraham sacrifice his son ... is to this day a divine warrant and a most powerful social lesson for all followers of the Abrahamic faiths, to ever do their utmost to save, uphold and treasure every human life and especially the lives of every single child," it said. "May the coming year be one in which the sanctity and dignity of human life is upheld by all," it added. "May it be a year of humble repentance before God and mutual forgiveness within and between communities", writes Tom Heneghan in an article of International Herald Tribune , and that "most Christian churches have responded positively".
"The inspirational power of the Alliance of Civilizations lies in its potential to transform the world from exclusive societies to inclusive societies comprising diverse peoples. While the exigencies of our time forced the Alliance of Civilizations to examine societal relationships through the prism of Muslim-Christian relations, the true value of its work of reconciliation is that it speaks to all of humanity."

Former Canadian parliament member Douglas Roche is also author of the book "Global Conscience", in the synopsis Amazon writes: "This title contains 30 international case studies, illustrating the interplay of public policy and private actions that will guide an enlightened path to human security."(sic)
Douglas Roche also co-authored the book "Safe Passage Into the 21st Century: United Nations Quest for Peace, Equality, Justice and Development" with Robert Muller, long-time U.N. Assistant Secretary-General who has based the curriculum for his many Robert Muller schools around the world on the underlying teachings of Luciferian Alice Bailey. Muller and Roche already in 1995 co-authored a book advocating a “common security agenda as the basis for a new world order.” This was after Roche at the World Conference of Religion for Peace in Louvain, Belgium (August 28-September 3, 1974) delivered a report titled “We can achieve a New World Order,” thus showing the power elite’s larger plan to use religion to bring about their New World Order of a World Socialist Government and One World Religion. (this is from Dr. Dennis L. Cuddy's 2007 July 23 article and now see the name of his article: JAVIER SOLANA & THE LARGER PLAN. The article also links to an article from Constance Cumbey: IS JAVIER SOLANA GOING TO SPEAK FOR EU AT UN? , a question we could answer with yes, since it's implemented into the Lisbon treaty. (see here).
Rouche's involvement in implementing the Dialogue culture into the curricula of the schools and University's can be seen in this article: "Seeking a culture of peace, diversity and tolerance"
Friends, as far as I remember we celebrate Christmas not because of the cute children,
or because it's the festival of love and romance. We celebrate the coming to earth of our Saviour.
"And the angel said unto them: Fear not, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2: 10-11)
And: the light is not the luciferian light of pseudo-wisdom or
the light "on the horizon for interfaith peace" or "enlightement for security" but:
" 2The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light
they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.
3Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
4For thou hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian.
5For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire.
6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this." (Jesaja 9)
So, it's NO - I do not change my attitude to Christmas.
