Reader comment on item: Israel's Strategic Incompetence in Gaza
in response to reader comment: The real "enemy"

Submitted by kman (United States), Jan 19, 2009 at 19:49

Peace with Islam is a dream and only a dream.

To really fight Islam, one has to see who they appeal to. The majority of the world's population is either desperately poor or, failing that, indifferent. Our own nation has displayed criminal indifference to world events and is going to soon pay the piper for that.

Western newspapers have bought into the whole thing of jumping on popular belief. Our news media are now run and reported by the students who pressed their careers in college without paying any attention to what was going on with the world at large. Hollywood-think and campus "bad-boy"- thin k have prevailed.

The majority of the planet is delusional and/or desperate. That is Islam's battlefronts and why they make their biggest gains. Most people just want opportunity and the chance to life. They are`repeatedly denied that.

Those who are backed by religious belief are not afraid to did die for their cause. Therein is another problem. We try to fight against an enemy that believes in a god with people who increasingly do not.

Things are shaping up just as the Christ said they would. Choose your god or live out the rest of existence fighting against God himself, and losing it all at the end.

When people get tired of listening to all the tripe put out by the western press and want to find truth, read The New Testament of the Bible. Jesus, the Lion of Judah, talked incessantly about truth and gave short shrift to culture of any day. He` talked about the truths of life and love. He told us how to find all of it.
