Lady! You've got some real CHUTZPAH to talk to me like that. You are the one who sounds Just like a Jihadist with all of your talk about killing. Hasn't it ever occured to you that the killing and the constant recycling of hatreds IS the cause of all of our problems? G-D never told me to kill any one. It was MEN and MEN ALONE who taught me to kill. AND I HAVE KILLED MEN in defense of my family. Do you think I am proud of that??

YOU go out and kill somebody and then tell me what you think! I have nightmares over it. War and killing are not some abstract for me as they are for some one like you! For me it's all up close and personal! I can still see the face of the first man I killed. He was no more than a boy of about eighteen. Not even a real man yet.

Lady, I am a veteran of three wars and I have seen combat in all three. It is only by the grace of G-D that I am alive to talk about it. You cannot see the real scars I carry. They are on my soul and not on my body. I some times think that G-D kept me alive only so that I could tell others about the horrors that I have seen, the horrors that I have lived through. And I HAVE TO TALK ABOUT IT OR GO MAD! The only hope I can see for myself and others like me is to change the minds and thinking of people like you who would gladly send me out , for the flimsiest of excuses, to kill again. YOU have absolutely no comprehension of the price that I have had to pay for the whims of people like you!

I do not hate a man because he is an Arab or even a Muslim. I hate a man who is too stupid or stubborn to listen. Who will continue, despite all reason, to pursue the foolish idea of conquest of others when he cannot conquer even himself. Men whos only true enemy is themselves, men whos lives thrive on hatred and distrust and the lust for power. THESE KINDS OF MEN DO I HATE! And they are not all Muslim!
