Yes, Mr. Tovey, I do understand your interpreting events with a biblical meaning. I believe that history must be learned so as not to repeat the same mistakes, and this applies to a certain degree if one looks at the bible as a historical reference. In that sense I find it valuable.

You are most certainly entitled to your views, and I welcome them as we agree on common goals and realities. To ascribe different interpretations is, in the end, a minor detail. Plus, we will have to make a serious effort to unite against the growing Islamist threat in the region, and in the world. And yes, you are correct in this also: if one side bases their actions on religion (Islam), then it is quite appropriate for you to respond with yours. As long as we both understand the facts as they are, minus the PR spin, do something to protect ourselves, that is all I would ask.
