News That Ain't News

What a great read. It supports what I've been saying regarding the Israeli/Palestinian conflict all along. There is no way for peace between the two until the Palesinians prove they really want it. Never has there been any indication that they ever really wanted it. They might go through certain motions, but it's just for show and Hamas won't even pretend.

There is only one right position on this issue for American foreign policy. That is that we withdraw all support and aid from the Palestinians and stand firmly with Israel, our ally and the only democracy in the region, and to speak plainly as to what we know to be the truth about who's causing all the trouble. We should no longer implore Israel to show restraint in the face of daily attacks on their sovereignty and lives, but encourage them to defend themselves as they see fit. Seems to me that if a poll shows a majority supports the terrorism, then they are unworthy of support and must be then forced to care for their citizens without our aid.

Interestingly enough, just as Palestinians must pay more than just lip service to peace [while lobbing missiles over the wall], so too must black bigoted pastors step up to the plate and pay more than lip service to improved race relations in this country. Only a fool decries injustice while perpetuating the injustice with wrathful and libelous rhetoric.

There'll be no peace there [OR here] until Christ returns.

There, I said my "piece."

Well, there certainly won't be any peace until people are willing to do what it takes to get it. For the Pallies, it means laying down arms and forsaking any thoughts of Israeli annihilation. For people like Wright and others espousing black theology, it means forsaking the attitude of victimhood and the focus on skin color. You know, preaching actual Christianity.

Yeah, whatever.
