It is amazing how the Shoebat haters concentrate all their efforts on condemning the character of Mr. Shoebat and his credibilty, but never really argue with the multitude of points and overall message he makes concerning the issues with Islamic fundamentalism and its relationship to the Arab Israeli conflict, as well as the islamization of Christians in their use of liberation theology to justify their own hatred of Jews.

Eileen Fleming seems to have a one dimensional love for Arabs but a complete hatred of Jews and Israel, some Christian! Mr Shoebat does not hate Muslims but certainly would have major problems with Islam. In other words he does not hate the people but the ideology that drives the hatred which is also the same ideology that drives the hatred of the USA and all other religions that are not Islam. Is Eileen Fleming going to argue with us and say that the Islamic hated of Europe, Americs, Budhists etc has no relationship with the Islamic hatred of Israel ? The Message of Jesus was peace and it is true he came with a message of peace and redemption but if one reads the scriptures carefully in the second coming (for Christians) and first coming for Jews, he comes as a Grizzly Bear to save Israel, it is clear. It is Walid's understanding of the scriptures which made him understand that the persecution and destruction of Israel/Jews was a complete contradiction to what G-d's plan was. Walid would also agree that while many would refer to him as a Palestinian he himself does not like that term but he is more comfortable being called an Israeli Arab because he was born in Bethlehem which is in Judea and as far he is concerned that is Israel.

Others label him Palestinian. Palestine does not exist and never was a country ever but the propaganda has become truth just as Goebels determined "if you tell a lie over and over it becomes truth." Unfortunately Eileen Fleming and her gang of peaceniks side with people who wish to go against the wishes of G-d and hide behind the Christian teaching of peace but only peace for Arabs and none for the Jews. It is obvious that Eileen Fleming has never read or studied the whole bible old and new, if she had she might not be suckered in by the propaganda which is also predicted in the very book she touts as justification for her hatred of Israel. If Eileen Fleming and her friends were truly interested in Justice and understanding Walid Shoebat's views she should read his book "G-d's War on terror" then after she read it we would be happy to discuss and argue the points he makes where she feels he might be misguided. If character assassination is her only motive then it is hard for her to call herself a Christian in the true sense of Jesus's message.
