Not really....however, I know that there is a time for war. Ecclesiastes tells us that there is a time for everything. God commanded that His people go to war various times! Have you read scripture? You speak as though educated, but if you've ever read Ecc, Psalms, Daniel, Samuels, etc, I'm sure you'd see how ludicrous your own statement is when you speak of Jesus (or me for that matter) jumping for joy. I'm a Christian...I do as God tells me....even when it hurts and I don't want to. Can I ascertain God's will in others's lives? Such as Israel? No I cannot. But I can refuse to judge them and pray that God's hand IS at work, instead of throwing in my two cents about it. In actuality, I'm sure the God of the universe really doens't care about my opinion!

No one can judge whether Israel is right or wrong but God! Israel has suffered SEVERE trauma from the Muslims. And from what I can tell, and what people who have lived there can tell, Israel is "RESPONDING" to the terror that has been forced on them by the Islams. The Jews don't go around singing songs about killing ANYONE, let alone the people who terrorize and pillage their land! Yet the Muslims have tormented and raised their children from the womb with a hatred for a people over nothing but sheer malice!

It is apparent that you are misinformed, and highly uneducated on this subject. You've never met the man you are judging. How can you decide what his motives are? The heart is deceitful, who can know it? You have no clue, and only God can decide whether Walid is truly for HIM or for himself. You can judge, but you truly do not know. You are simply taking stabs in the dark when it comes to Walid's true identity, his faith and his heart.

You must not be a Christian, or else you'd know that Christians are called to the standard of Jesus. Have you ever heard "What Would Jesus Do?" So, comparing WS to Christ is EXACTLY how you can determine whether or not he is walking in the Spirit of God! It's not delusional, it's REALITY! "By their fruit, you shall know them." And to say that Jesus did submit to punishment....eh, 3 years after he began his ministry, and that WS Shoebat should turn himself in is completely ignoring the fact that we as Christians live life surrendered to the will and timing of God. Walid Shoebat's ministry is within the timing of God. If were not so, he would not be here! So----go on your merry way, ignoring the power of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob...the God who formed the entire universe and put the stars in their place! Because, my friend....it is a hopeless cause to convince you of something you are completely turn off by.

May God reveal Himself to you, just as He did to Walid! And, David, may peace reign in your heart!

Submitting....
