If you were correct

Reader comment on item: Walid Shoebat: "Palestinian turns from radical Muslim to true Zionist"
in response to reader comment: You are being led astray

If you were correct in saying that the small amount of Muslims doing what they are doing are doing it because of the refugee and 'apartheid like' situation in Israel, the violence would be focused exclusively on that area; but it's not. It's all over the world.Acts of violence in Indonesia have nothing to do with refugees in Israel, Train bombs in Madrid have nothing to do with curfews in the Gaza Strip. Shall I go on?

And again, it's not a small amount of people; it's a rather large and dangerous group of people.

Have you ever heard it said that the squeaky wheel gets the grease? Eventually, the peaceful Muslims will have no choice but to support the violent ones or die. This is the nature of the power that's been given to this beast-Do as we do or be swallowed up.

For a long time now, people have learned to co-exist with others who do not see eye to eye because they learned to either tolerate (which is a nice way of saying you are wrong) or they agree to disagree.

These groups that are committing these acts of hostility do not ascribe to either one of the aforementioned methods of co-existence. A good many of them are not afraid to mention that they won't be happy until their Law, or code of living has spread across the entire earth.

Now I'm going to lay it out plain and simple like.

I have seen two recent posts rationalizing and practically sympathizing with the method known as Suicide Bombings. Come on now, it is not right under any circumstance, rage or not, no excuses.

Let's play hypothetical. Israel, the whole lot of it has been rewarded to the Arabs. It no longer exists, Palestinians get it all.

Does the violence against the Jews stop? Do the Muslims around the world lay down their arms? I doubt it most severely.

I do not believe everything I hear or read, but if it quacks, waddles and swims, it's a duck my friends.
