The most spiritually powerful religious icon in the world today
There is a new religious icon in Israel that has the power to "speak" to all people who see it through a now universal understanding of the two aspects that comprise it: the sword and the peace sign.

At Easter in the year 2003 the Sword of Peace, Paxcalibur, was honored by over 500 Arab Israeli Christians and not a few Muslims too in Nazareth, Israel. All who saw Paxcalibur knew what it meant without any need for language. Paxcalibur tells us what we must do to obey the will of God who desires peace and not war between peoples of differing beliefs and nationalities. The Sword of Peace, Saif Al Salam, is the Sign of the Messiah for our times.

As with many iconic images, there is a history - or perhaps a mythology - behind the peace sign. Legend has it that it was invented around 1958 by Bertrand Russell (mathematician, logician, philosopher, atheist and pacifist). It is supposedly derived from the semaphore (flag signals) for the letters N (the swept back 'wings') and D (the vertical line), standing for Nuclear Disarmament. This was the height of the Cold War when everyone expected to be vaporized by an H-bomb any day now. Within a few years, especially with the advent of the non-nuclear Vietnam War, it became a generalized 'peace' symbol.

Our generation, the '60's counterculture generation, spread the peace symbol around the world. Now there are few places left on earth where people do not know what that symbol means. "OK" has also become universalized in most places. Tongue
