Volition is key

Reader comment on item: Israel's Predicament at 60: World's worst neighbourhood
in response to reader comment: The cost of peace

Hello Larry B.,

I agree with you. "Love thy enemy" certainly does not apply to warfare and defense of your country! War is won by offensive measure. And the "angelic conflict" and volitional consequence started it all.

Countries that militarly defend their own FREEDOM - without which, volition is limited.

Something I have found Muslims reluctant to comment on - why is conversion out of Islam punishable by death? Indeed, why does so much of the Muslim world restrict freedom in so many forms?

The "god" of this world HATES "freedom". He is a dictatorial tyrant who's success depends on the slavery of man.
