A Question of Justice

Hezbollah rocket barrage kills 8 in Haifa

All decent people will condemn the loss of innocent life and I do so here. Furthermore, there can be no justice in the kind of war that is happening now in the mid East (in Lebanon, Gaza and Iraq).

However:
Israel's prime minister on Sunday threatened "far-reaching consequences" for a Hezbollah rocket attack on the Israeli city of Haifa that left at least eight people dead and more than 20 others wounded. The attack raised the death toll in Israel to more than 20, while more than 100 people have died in Lebanon in Israeli strikes. (emphasis added)
The wholesale destruction of civilian targets in Beirut is an escalation that has been implicitly condoned by President Bush in that he, in a strange twist of logic, "backs Israel's right to defend itself." Since when has "defending yourself" given you the right to wholesale destruction of innocent civilians?

Furthermore:
"The international community must address the root causes" of the violence taking place in the Mideast, Bush said.

"This started because Hezbollah decided to capture two Israeli soldiers and fire hundreds of rockets into Israel from southern Lebanon," Bush said. "That's the cause of the crisis." (emphasis added)
The root causes of the violence? How damn stupid can you get? This shows his C-minus mentality. He shows absolutely no grasp of the situation and its history. Why, why did the American people elect this man?



Let me be very clear about this. I am not condemning Israel because it is a Jewish State. I am condemning Israel because it has received the power to kill vast numbers of people, mostly from the United States (my tax dollars, by the way), and they have not shown wisdom or justice in deploying this power. There can be few good consequences following on the path they are pursuing.

ISLAM IS THE RELIGION OF ABRAHAM, MOSES, JESUS AND MUHAMMAD (PEACE BE UPON THEM ALL).
THINK ABOUT IT HOW COULD AN ILLITERATE MAN INSPIRE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE AND 1400 YEARS LATER STILL BE HAVING AN EFFECT ON THE WORLD.
WAKE UP FEAR THE GOD OF ISRAEL AND THE UNIVERSE.
AS A WESTENER THE RATE OF ISLAMS INFLUENCE IS SKY ROCKETING ESPECIALLY IN EUROPE. SO STOP BURYING YOUR HEADS IN THE SAND (no pun intended) LIKE OSTRICHES.
STOP DEMONISING THE FUTURE FAITH OF MANKIND.
IF ISLAM IS AN ARAB RELIGION FOUNDED BY AN ARAB IT WOULD NOT HAVE SPREAD FURTHER THAN MECCA OR MEDINA.

thank you for visiting my site. I'm afraid that I find religion to be the cause of the world's troubles and not the solution. That goes for any religion, particularly when they teach that the destruction of children is an acceptable sacrifice to their god. I had thought that had gone out with Baal. (please see Saalambo by Flaubert)
