Lebanon/Gaza are not Singapore

in response to reader comment: Another view of this articile

I'm sorry, Harden, but the major difference between Singapore and Lebonon/Gaza is their religion. Singapore does not have a religion (Islam) that has a violent political agenda that practices gross intolerance and hatred toward any person or nation that is not Islamic. Singapore is over 50% Buddhist and Tao, about 15% Christian and less than 15% Muslim.

Being surrounded by several nations and several million people whose fervent religious agenda is to eliminate you is not an easy thing. Making friends and treaties with them peace will not bring.

Despite the opinion of the United Nations, college professors, gullible students, leftist politicians, and the average dumb smuck on the street, Islam is NOT the "religion of peace" and the violent jihadists are not "a tiny minority." This is reality. We all have to deal with it, especially Israel.
