He said his heart goes out to those who are maimed and killed. He said that war has been perpetual in that region for thousands of years. He did not condone what the Israeli's did and pointed out that they had been punished.
Why do you call him, and by extension any of us who hold those views, a scumbag for being realistic? That was a totally knee-jerk reaction that was surprising coming from you.
There are two sides to the conflict over there and both sides share the same guilt--both have taken lives of innocent people while fighting in war after war. All nations are guilty of that, unfortunately. There is no bully nation, nor is one side more the victim than the other.
Why do you call John a scumbag for saying he thinks the Muslim nations are at fault and that they probably applaud anyone who takes the lives of infidels, yet don't have a problem with many on this site who call Israel murderers and bullies? I thought John has as much a right to express his opinions as do the pro-Palestinian people at this site, or does he? Did it ever occur to you that Pro-Israeli people find the comments directed at Israelis just as horrific? We do.
I guess this is my answer. I've been trying to decide if I want to stay any longer at sites with such anti-American and anti-Israeli sentiments expressed as the norm, and I guess I really don't. I have a machine full of viruses still on the bench at the PC shop because of Net 54, so I think this is a good time for me to just remove all of those sites from my bookmarks. I'll miss you, Jackie. Well, the Jackie full of light--not the one who calls people with other viewpoints heartless scumbags. God bless.
