Destiny Again

Reader comment on item: A Rapid and Harsh Turn against Israel
in response to reader comment: Reality of Israel in Her Own Land is Not Fantasy - But Biblical Destiny Realized Against All Human Logic

Submitted by attaturk (United States), Jun 19, 2009 at 08:17

No, after many years on this earth as an old man who may soon face whatever as one who has studied many religions - the one thing life has taught me is that while I know that you are sincere in your beliefs it is people like you who will get millions killed if not all of us. You sit upon this second coming and watch your bretrren die sacrificed to this pagan god you worship. I say pagan not to be insulting but as merely a statement of fact this form of the creator you worship seeks human sacrifice to accomplish his goals.

I believe in a higher power but lay no claim to knowing its wishes or desires if indeed it has any, which I doubt. But this much I know if only a sliver of mankind is saved if I am to watch the damnation of the rest of humanity then I wish no part of it - I would prefer the damned to the immorality of the religion you describe. I have loved life and those I have met in it as I have traveled this world - even those that believe things I find stunning. Yet still I find it funny that I a castaway muslim have a more reasonable and greater desire for the existence of Israel. I think the creator did put man's destiny in man's hand - I think the creator wants us to use the gifts we have been given, to rise up and be more than we are and in fact rise up and meet it on equal footing.

For your sake I hope you are right or if not then I hope I'm right - my vision of a creator won't hold it against you if you're wrong. As to why Israel exists - it is because her people are a "stiff necked" people, stubborn and yes courageous and because the west had a conscious. She will continue to exist for those reasons- the question is will she exist in peace - that is only answered by her ability to find a moral footing.
