Dear Mr. Tovie ,

"How many times did you say that the United States invaded any place that was not first someone else's problem? Who invaded Kuwait? Sure, we went into Iraq and decimated their armies; but how many Iraqis are buried by the hand of the Islamic revolution of Iran?"

My Answer : And Dear Mr. Tovie may I tell you who was the chief patron of Saddam during Iraq-Iran war ? It was your own "GOD's own America" which sold Saddam every sort of weapons including nerve gas that led to the massacre of civilians in Halabza. And which American officials were there when these deals were done dear Mr. Tovie ? it was your favorite Judeo-Christian politicians Don Rumsfeld and Jesse Helms.

It is you Judeo-Chrsitians who in the guise of so-called "Christianity" and "Civilization" who brought death and destruction to the region by providing WMD-s to that secular and tyrant Saddam so you did not do any favors to the people of Iraq by toppling the one whom you put in power and provoked to attack Iran.

"Which leads to the final question: do you think that the love of Jesus Christ is necessary to stop all the blood lust you are trying to use to prove your point?"

My Answer : My answer is in the form of an example dear Mr. Tovie. It was the same question that former American president Andrew Jackson asked the Native Americans that is if they accept the word of Jesus Christ then they would be allowed to live with peace and dignity (on their own land) by the United States of America. The Native Americans be they Chocataw , Creeks , Cherokees or every other tribe did exactly that and you know what Andrew Jackson (and your next president Martin Van Buren) did ? He stole all the lands of the Native Americans , murdered their innocent children and elderly , raped their women , brought to them the vice of alcoholism and in the end destroyed and annihiliated their cultures. So tell me was Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren right in their endevors to first lie and then commit those destructions of native American cultures in the name of Jesus ?

I give you another example. Look at your streets of your Judeo-Christian America which is largely non-Muslim and people where generally have accepted the Word of Jesus Christ. Now can you go at night after 10 PM at New York without risking your life ? Can you move freely after dark at Chicago or for that matter Los Angeles , Huston , Tenesse or for that matter Tel Aviv , Athens , London , Paris or Lagos , Cape Town , Johanesberg or any other Judeo-Christian places.

But you can keep your doors open and sleep in peace in any city and town of Saudi Arabia , you can work and move freely in Karachi , Kabul , Baghdad , Istanbul , Tehran or Jakarta. Even there is violence on Muslim streets but still these places are much more peaceful in general than any other places in the United States.

So , to give you a final answer to your question , yes I believe that the love and word of Jesus Christ directly leads to violence.
