Where's the link to Moore's comment on the terrorist threat?Another stupid quote:"We know where they are. They are in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad." -- Donald Rumsfeld talking about those pesky weapons of mass destruction, March 30, 2003
Yes! The long awaited moral equivalency!Google that quote - it's all over the place.
For the record:http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2004/12/03/opinion/main659030.shtml
Invading Iraq has not helped the war against terror or the war on "Islamic Fundamentalism." HAS IT?!
AP: Israeli troops begin expanded ground warIsrael began an expanded ground offensive in southern Lebanon on today after expressing dissatisfaction over an emerging cease-fire deal in the United Nations, according to The Associated Press. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's spokesman, Asaf Shariv, told AP the expanded incursion had already begun."Let's see how many kids we can kill today," said Olmet.
"Let's see how many kids we can kill today,"And Hezbollah is not killing kids and innocent civilians!?!?! The only reason they haven't wiped Israel of the face of the Earth is a lack of military might not a lack of resolve. They hate Israel and desire nothing but its total annialation (children and all)!!!The difference is Israel is shooting at Miliary targets (which happen to be in civilian areas) and sometimes misidentifying targets or just plain missing. This is not anything that every country that has ever been in a war is not guilty of. Hezbollah is firing specifically at civilians with lack of care or conscience as to where their rockets land! Furthermore they specifically place civilians in harms way by placing military targets in civilian areas in hopes that those targets will not be attacked. There is no moral equivilancy here!For the civilians in Lebanon who are completely innocent, I agree that this is horrid and I pray for their families. But as for the blame, I place it on Hezbollah's shoulders and not on Israel. Israel must fight for its survival.
Ray,Israel is fighting for its right to exist as a nation -- both in the strict nation-state sense and as a people.Hezbollah and the countless other factions want Jews exterminated or "pushed into the sea" as their leaders say. Take a look at the map again - Israel accounts for less than 3% of that region, yet Liberals demand they cede more territory the Muslims. It's as though the TV cameras never zoom out....sound familiar...? Of course, that would provide context. The last thing media has time to provide.History has seen countless others try to exterminate them. Yet, despite incredible, overwhelming odds, Israel survives time and time again. You want proof of God? I've got two words for you: The Jew.
At least 50 newborn babies in the West Bank and Gaza Strip have been named after Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah over the past month, sources in the Palestinian Authority Health Ministry told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday (August 13, 2006).Just like George Washington, ain't it?
"You want proof of God?"Proof of god, yikes. Sorry, I don't read fiction.
Iraq Beheading Videos Enter Summer Reruns-- The Onion, August 11, 2006 | Issue 42•33 FALLUJAH, IRAQ—After a much-watched, record-setting season, Iraqi TV's popular series of beheading videos entered summer reruns this week as the cast and producers focus on stockpiling weapons and identifying targets. "Naturally viewers are impatient for new episodes, but beheading videos don't script and tape themselves," said actor-producer-insurgent Haitham Al-Badhri, who has used his much-needed hiatus to scout new locations in Fallujah, Basrah, and even the suburbs of Baghdad. "I promise we'll have lots of excitement for all of our fans come September, including a few special surprise 'guests' you won't want to miss." Though beheading-video viewers claim the reruns lack suspense, reports indicate that summer ratings remain high.
Former Israeli PM Sharon's condition worsensMon Aug 14, 2006 10:36am ETInternational NewsJERUSALEM (Reuters) - The condition of comatose former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon deteriorated further on Monday, the hospital treating him said.Sharon has been in a coma since January.A statement issued by the Sheba hospital near Tel Aviv said that doctors had "reported a deterioration in Sharon's condition."They said Sharon had a reduction in urine output and that a scan showed he had double pneumonia.The hospital said the team of doctors had started treating the 78-year old with antibiotics and steroids. It is believed Sharon senses that he could have killed children and is missing out on the fun.
According to Richard Armitage, who served as Deputy Secretary of State in Bush’s first term—and who, in 2002, said that Hezbollah “may be the A team of terrorists”—Israel’s campaign in Lebanon, which has faced unexpected difficulties and widespread criticism, may, in the end, serve as a warning to the White House about Iran. “If the most dominant military force in the region—the Israel Defense Forces—can’t pacify a country like Lebanon, with a population of four million, you should think carefully about taking that template to Iran, with strategic depth and a population of seventy million,” Armitage said. “The only thing that the bombing has achieved so far is to unite the population against the Israelis.”
"In a spasm of celebration for Hezbollah's monthlong battle againstIsrael, many parents in Gaza City have named their children after the Islamic militant group and its leader, Sheik Hassan Nasrallah.In Gaza City's Shifa Hospital, six Palestinian women have named their babies Hassan, Nasrallah, or Hassan Nasrallah, according to maternity records from when fighting began July 12 to when a cease-fire took effect Monday." -Yahoo! NewsNasrallah: She Certainly Did"There’s something most people don’t know about Hezbollah boss Hassan Nasrallah. In Russian, the word “nasrallah” means “She took a dump.” Applied to Nasrallah’s mother, that name is most appropriate. Because clearly, her son was defecated into the world. " - www.juliagorin.com
War-Torn Middle East Seeks Solace In ReligionJERUSALEM — As an uneasy truce between Israel and Hezbollah continues, millions of average men and women in the Holy Land are turning to the one simple comfort that has always seen them through the darkest days of their troubled history: the steadfast guidance of their religious faith.Arabs and Israelis alike are embracing their faith as a way to make sense of the violence from which there seems to be no escape."I take solace in knowing that my faith is a sanctuary, an escape from the bloodshed and turmoil," said Haifa resident Yigal Taheri, who last week lost his wife and newborn daughter when a Fajr-3 long-range rocket launched by Lebanese militants struck the synagogue where his family was attending services. "YHWH, Elohim, whatever you wish to not call Him—His love comforts all those who are willing to open their hearts to Him. Praise be to G–d.""Religion is the one thing that has never let us down," Taheri added over the low rumble of AK-47 fire emanating from the nearby home of a radical Israeli rabbi.Taheri is not alone. In a time of seemingly unending conflict between Israelis and Arabs, a growing number of Middle Easterners are fervently embracing the unshakeable wisdom of Judaism and Islam.Palestinian Omar Abdel-Malik, a resident of the Gaza Strip town of Khan Younis, credits his Islamic beliefs for preserving his sanity. "The Israelis have fired missile upon missile on my neighborhood, but it has only made my trust in Allah that much stronger," Abdel-Malik said. "I cringe to think where the people of the Middle East would be right now if it weren't for our steadfast belief in one true, merciful, and loving Supreme Being." Palestinian widow and mother of three Dareen Idriss agreed, citing the healing power of prayer as a way to cope with the relentless slaughter she and her family witness every day. "When the children cannot stop crying because of the bombs, we all gather our families in the rubble of the mosque to pray for justice," Idriss said. "During this calm meditation, we also pray for the annihilation of the Hebrew race."An unidentified Palestinian man seeks a renewed resolve through prayer.West Bank settler Ari Chayat, whose neighborhood has also been ravaged by violence, echoed this profound reliance on faith. "The world is so brutal and unfair," Chayat said. "Many days, my uncompromising belief in a vengeful creator is all that gets me out of bed in the morning.""If it wasn't for my faith that the God of Abraham has given these lands to Jews and Jews alone by divine decree, I probably wouldn't even be here today," Chayat added.Lebanese militant Jawad Hamid, who recently lost his best friend to an Israeli helicopter attack while the two men were on their way to pick up a Katyusha rocket, said his faith in Allah was the only way he could cope with the tragedy."Every time I want to give up hope, I just open the Quran to my favorite passage, Surah 2:194: 'Whoever acts aggressively against you, inflict injury on him,'" Hamid said. "Whenever I read those words, I am immediately filled with inspiration and a renewed sense of purpose."Even political leaders have tapped into the public's reliance on religion and used it as a way to encourage them to never give up."In this time of strife, the only way to endure the unending suffering is through an unwavering, uncompromising faith in one's religious beliefs," Israeli hard-liner Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday. Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah went so far as to quote from the Quran in a speech delivered followers the same afternoon."It's always frightening to be reminded of your own mortality, as we all were this past Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday," Hezbollah commander Mahdi al-Zaidi said. "But rather than react irrationally, I looked deep within my faith, consulted the Quran, and by the mercy of Allah, I gained the resolve to oversee a massive airstrike against the enemy.""We will get through this, so long as we have God on our side," he added.
That is one of the most disgusting photos I've seen the Blogosphere in awhile...
