Hate is Alive and Well

Reader comment on item: Anti-Semitism Evolves

Submitted by Scott Harlow (United States), Feb 25, 2005 at 19:03

Yes, Marcos Berenstein hit the nail on the head all right. Instead of standing together with Christians at a time when Muslim radicals cut the heads off of Jewish reporters, and American soldiers, he brings up the Crusades and other wrongs perpetrated against his people since the dawn of time. It seems to me that Bin Laden himself has mentioned these Crusades as one of the reasons he's mad at America but many evolved people wonder how somebody can still harbor anger over a wrong that was perpetrated on their people nearly 1000 years ago! My message is this: get over it. Hate fueled Hitler, too.

Yes, there were some evil Christians that killed Jews in Germany on their way to free the Holy Land from Turks who had been killing Christians along the road to Jerusalem and some other bad things. This was in 1096. Can you forgive these people, Marcos?

If you can, then I'll forgive you for your hatred of Christianity and the Catholic Church. In the meantime, read this article and decompress a little: http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2000/134/42.0.html

The United States has paid dearly for its unyielding support of Israel in numerous terrorist attacks around the world. American and especially Russian blood flowed freely in Europe during WWII to defeat Hitler and free the death camp inhabitants. Over 40 million civilians, in addition to the 6 million killed in the concentration camps, were killed by Hitler's tyranny and war machine.

We need to stand together, love one another and remain focused on the threats of today.
