Good Grief!

Reader comment on item: [Alastair Crooke's Conflict Forum and] Sharing Jokes with Hamas

Submitted by Bruce (United States), Apr 26, 2005 at 13:23

Sir:

I have a dear friend who is muslim and who, I might add is a proper gentleman. I find it intensely amusing that he pointed out that the only way to deal with muslim fanatics and religious leaders was to; " line them up against a wall and shoot them".

There are indeed moderate muslims out there and as someone wisely pointed out they are drowned out by the shrill hate filled rhetoric of cruel fanatics. I have never been able to understand the culture of hate that surrounds muslim terrorists, nazis or any other confederation of murderous hate filled criminals. More to the point I absolutely detest the aformentioned groups as well as the many other groups like them. I do not believe there is anything to be gained from a culture of hate and cruelty. I do not wake up every morning thinking about how much I hate someone or something nor will I ever. I truly believe that we should all do our best to contribute something good to this world. I for one am intent on killing any and all terrorists I come across in the prosecution of my duties with the Marine Corps. I will also continue to be a staunch supporter of Israel and our Jewish brothers in their struggle to be left in peace.

In the case of those of you who are reading this and are terrorists or their apologists ie Clinton, Pelosi and Co... I assure you that you are on a "fool's errand" and will pay dearly for it in this world or the next. You speak of crimes in the west while you slaughter in the east all the while claiming divine guidance in your retribution of crimes real or imagined. Yes you do ride to war, that is true, but not to victory...not on my watch...Long live America and Israel and death to their enemies!

Semper Fidelis
Bruce
