As a muslim I am taught that the world will almost certainly not know peace untill the saviour jesus of nazereth is reborn. That doesn't mean we shouldn't work for peace ourselves. Of course we should aim to get as close as we can before God blesses the earth again with his last but one messenger. Inner city east London is a diverse cultural melting pot with a varied mix of religious practice. I was born and raised a christian in a fairly secular household on a drug infested housing estate. There were many religious tensions bubbling under the surface and many rival small time gangsters "protecting" their part of the community. Divided and ruled by a government everyone said they didnt want. When decent people allow themselves to be divided it lets bad elements creep in. Occultists gained some popularity around my area. They called themselves by different names but they were satanists all the same. 130 years ago the salvation army cleaned up the east end. London got dirty again.
