Paul, unfortunately we are dealing with alligators

Reader comment on item: Europe is Finished, Predicts Mark Steyn
in response to reader comment: How did we reach this point with such venom?

"….see the faces of the suffering in the faces of your loved ones and thank G-D. Why not lay down your sword and talk, see yourself in the reflection of your enemy..."

Paul, these are indeed very commendable words, of a lofty mind and a big heart. True Christian love! Unfortunately however, when they come to slit your throat, or to blow themselves up next to you, or next to your loved ones it is very hard to be guided by these words of love.

Or in other words, you can be a very good hearted, loving person, yet still when you are up to your a.. in alligators it is difficult to remind yourself that your initial objective was to drain the swamp.

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Moshe
