Hi DNM,

"We do not celebrate the lives of those that committed atrocities against our native population"

My Answer : Incorrect. My dear DNM you should know that you people still sing praises for the man Tom Jeffy (Thomas Jefferson) , who personally encouraged the taking over of native American lands and forcible conversion of the native Americans to the American way. The following is Tom Jeffy's own remarks :

"The plan of civilizing the Indians is undoubtedly a great improvement on the ancient and totally ineffectual one of beginning with religious missionaries. Our experience has shown that this must be the last step of the process. The following is what has been successful: 1st, to raise cattle, etc., and thereby acquire a knowledge of the value of property; 2d, arithmetic, to calculate that value; 3d, writing, to keep accounts, and here they begin to enclose farms, and the men labor, the women spin and weave; 4th, to read Aseop's Fables and Robinson Crusoe are their first delight. The Creeks and the Cherokees are advanced thus far, and the Cherokees are now instituting a regular government. "(As cited in Mayo,1972)

Now tell me what right did Thomas Jefferson have to change the lifestyle of the native Americans ?

Also you still celebrate the biggest mass murderers in Truman and McArthur. These are the terrorists who are responsible the atrocities in Hiroshima and Dresden.

Tell me why your historians like that Victor Davis Hanson sing praises for those murderers Truman and McArthur ?

>a President who lied and was responsible for the murder of thousands of innocents in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Wait: why are you switching subjects? We are talking about Vanunu right?

My Answer : Yes yes let us talk about Vanunu. I compared the treatment of Vanunu to your treatment of Bush. My question to you is if the West is law-abiding then why punish Vanunu who spoke a truth and reward Bush who lied while maintaining the office of the president.

Now I think Vanunu is innocent. You should also remember that Vanunu was kidnapped from his place in London and sent to Jail in Israel. Now which law-abiding country kidnaps her own citizens ?

I again urge you to be free of your anti-Islamic bias and judge the world with truth.

"Suer we make mistakes but non of our mistakes can be attributed to a deity! "

My Answer : Absolutely wrong. First of all you call the genocide of millions as "mistakes". What kind of a heartless person you are !!!

Remember each and everyone of your atrocities were justified as "manifest destiny" and "God's will" by your leaders.

That murderer Truman even had the nerve to call the genocide at Hiroshima as "an wonderful event"!!!

I ask you when you Americans are going to beg forgiveness to the descendants of the victims of the Atom bomb in Hiroshima ?

Submitting....
