sad days indeed

Reader comment on item: My Gloom: Back to September 10

Submitted by Donald O (United States), Dec 20, 2005 at 22:33

case in point: Monday I'm listening to my local Public Radio station and hear the following:

after 6 years of fund raising we are proud to announce a new Masjid [mosque] in South Florida [Margate] with the welcomed support of local Jewish congregations. They have quick interviews with the leaders of the effort including the Jew who is proud to 'reach-out' in this great undertaking. Is this Earth?

you have to wonder: Is there any reason for Christians of anyone else to support Israel? The American Jews are supposed to be the staunchest supporters of Israel and yet here's another example in which they feel closer to their Abrahamic Brothers than any other organizations or belief systems - regardless of the facts of History. Why is that? Are they posturing for some future guarantees of protection? What is it?

Anyway, seeing developments like this make me realize the examples Daniel has listed in this article as being proof in the pudding - Americans are as stupid as the rest of the world. And sorry to say - that's pretty damned Dumb!
Submitting....
