The "Religion of Peace" shows its true colors...

again.

Were I President, I'd give the Israelis an unlimited hunting license with no size restrictions or bag limits.

"One bleeding-heart type asked me in a recent interview if I did not agree that "violence begets violence." I told him that it is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure?and in some cases I have?that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy."

What is even more disturbing

In reply to: The "Religion of Peace" shows its true colors...

What is even more disturbing is that some in the media as well as certain establishments placing the whole blame on Israel, yet totally ignoring the nonstop provocations by Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
When Israel withdrew from Gaza, forcibly removing every single settler and all army personnel, all it got in return was nonstop barrage of rockets raining on her citizens. Where are the UN and EU and all other so called enlightened nations who were only so quick to condemn Israel and pass resolutions? They seem awfully silent and totally oblivious to what is happening there.
Yes, I agree with the late Col. Jeff Cooper. I only wish that Israel realizes what is needed is a total victory, rather than the wishful thinking mindset that these extremists and terrorists will compromise if they are hit hard enough. You have to hit them harder and harder, with the intention of eliminating them forever.

It may not be a popular decision, but how long can a people be living under such circumstances, when the rest of the world doesn?t give a damn to what these terrorists are doing.

Interesting. You say, "then there would be peace"

In reply to: but then there would be peace

[when Hamas is gone]. I learned just last night that it was Pres. Wilson himself who "promised" that what we now call World War One would be "the war to end all wars". Seems you think so also about your projected war against a regional guerrilla force. Can you explain how that would happen? Like most people, I'm very interested in peace.

A couple of thoughts from a book I use for military intelligence:
The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? Jer 17:9, NIV

Again I looked and saw all the oppression that was taking place under the sun: I saw the tears of the oppressed? and they have no comforter; power was on the side of their oppressors? and they have no comforter. And I declared that the dead, who had already died, are happier than the living, who are still alive. But better than both is he who has not yet been, who has not seen the evil that is done under the sun. Ecclesiastes 4:1-3

All this I saw, as I applied my mind to everything done under the sun. There is a time when a man lords it over others to his own hurt. ... When the sentence for a crime is not quickly carried out, the hearts of the people are filled with schemes to do wrong. Ec 8:9,11
In the same vein Langston Hughes said, "What happens to a dream deferred? ... does it explode?"

I've found these to be an accurate statements of the human condition; do you have a plan to change it?

... and it has never been his habit to insult anyone's religion or lack thereof.

The article clearly identified the shooter as a militant. The militants there consider all others as infidels deserving of being killed, and their special enemies are the Jews. If there were not Jews or infidels thee would be peace . It's their fault, not the fault of the militants.

How does Paul even connect this to religion?

In reply to: Regarding your statement.

No where in the article he links to, does it make the case that there was a religious motivation for the massacre. None of the official spokesmen for the Israelis or the Arabs say it is connected to religion or any jihadist movement. No where in the long history of conflict between the Palestinians and the Israelis have I ever seen a serious case being made that their conflict is a religious war.

I understand anger over targedy and a long standing guerilla conflict... I don't understand the irrational connection of one unrelated fact to another. I guess I'm just stupid that way.

That's a personal question.

In reply to: Regarding your statement.

The title of Paul's post did not relate to him, but to militants.

I suspect you wonder if Paul possibly held to a religion that also speaks of peace but corrupts it in some manner. (Note, for instance, that even those who hold to Christianity here admit to not being 100% proud of what was done in it's name in the past).

It was the police who were responsible for stopping the gun man. I hope that no one in Jerusalem speaks of police brutality!!!

True

In reply to: That's a personal question.

But what started this thread was a subject line that could not in any way be considered cool and objective. Religion and peace has been broached and deserves follow up if the original observation is not to be considered insulting, inane, or hypocritical.

Thanks,

Dan
