Reader comment on item: Walid Shoebat: "Palestinian turns from radical Muslim to true Zionist"
in response to reader comment: Mr. Shoebat is a good example

I couldn't agree more. We are called to love our neighbors as ourselves. But we are also called to challenge fellow Christians who distort the message of Christ - and use false premises to advance their own agenda. Many here say that Shoebat has a message of compassion. But what I read in his comments is a desire to demonize those he claims to be members of his own Palestinian community. I see no love here. I see someone playing into the hands of those who wish to marginalize and dehumanize our Palestinian neighbors. And the worse thing is that he's doing this against his own people (or so he says - I have yet to be convinced that he is who he says he is. . . . Too many unanswered questions - particularly about his so called "terrorist" connections. . . . It just doesn't ring true).
