I've said it before in these forums. There are two kinds of men in the world. There are those who seek the wisdom of G-D and there are those who seek the power of G-D. Those who seek the wisdom of G-D are a blessing and those who seek the power of G-D are a curse.

Imperialism, regardless of the guise it affects or the cloth it wraps about itself, is the enemy of both man and G-D. The imperialist mind will seek any means to justify itself and its actions and it will have no qualm to use the Holy Name to manipulate the peoples who are its minions and cause them to peform the most heinous of acts. The spirit of imperialism is SATAN manifest in the likes of Hitler, Stalin, Saddam Husein, Quadaffi, Achmadinijad, Pol Pot, and countless other personages both known and unknown throughout our history. Men of this ilk have never been loathe to use religion or patriotism to promote their agendas and always they have led our world into conflict.

I think it time to put a true face on the deamon that plagues us. He who hates Zion hates the womb that bore him into life and daily curses the Holy Name of G-D. Let us not be decieved as to who that being truely is despite his many faces.
