These Israeli-Arab arguments will go on till the Messiah's advent (first one to our Jewish friends and second one to us Christians). Moslems are just never going to accept it no matter how much we argue or try to debate with them. As much as we Westerners--even atheists and liberal ones--think debate is a good thing, Moslems don't. They don't because it is a threat to them. Our liberals can't see that. Obama can't see it either because he has Moslem sympathies. So forget thinking you have a bargaining point with him.

But though we don't have a bargaining point with Moslems, we ought to realize that by now. Golda Meir said a long time ago that there will be no peace in the Middle East till Arabs learn to love their children more than they hate is. Read the Koran and you'll soon see that that simply is not going to happen. Only liberals are stupid and blind enough to believe that it will in spite of what the Koran says loudly, clearly and explicitly.A belief system that sends children across minefields and trains them to be suicide bombers shows that such people do not have love for children (and where is Unicef in the face of this appaling abuse of children that not even the vile Nazis stooped to?)

Let's remember that Blair and Bush made the audacious and very public lie that Islam means peace. Doesn't Obama maintain the same thing. He's said nothing about this treatment of children in the Moslem world. And if the so-called leaders of the western world played a fiar game, we could stop Islam in its tracks. All we need to do is keep hammering the truth about the history of Islam and it's doctrines.

It's doctrine of Taqiya is permission to lie when it benefits the propagation of the Moslem belief. A lie is something to be abhorred in both Jewish and Christian (I do not mean Roman Catholic or Orthodox "Christianity") theology. In fact, both Old and New Testaments warn of the eternal damnation of liars. (Before I am accused of being anti-Catholic, I was educated at Romanist schools and have relations who still are Catholics and I was taught by my mentors that it was fine to lie for one's church. One has only to read Catholic and Orthodox theologians to see that they actually do lie in their theology.)

But, to get back to my point, as Islam allows and indeed encourages Taqiya, forbids the teaching of Judeo-Christian beliefs in Islamic countries, surely we should play them at their own game.

Surely we should
*refuse them the right to build mosques until Christians are allowed to build churches (and our allies the Jews are allowed to build synagogues) in Islamic nations;
