Our shortcomings catching up to us

Reader comment on item: Interview: ‘I watch with frustration as the Israelis don't get the point'

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Jun 11, 2006 at 06:58

A renaissance is needed in the spiritual realm for Israel and the West to put the worst attributes that humankind has become known for behind us.

When you take a look at what stormed out of the Arabian Peninsula roughly 1400 years ago, it is understandable that something be cooked up to explain the actions of conquest.

So, until those who are identified by what stormed out of the Arabian Peninsula roughly 1400 years ago accept two foundations of the Christian faith tradition (private property and each area of life allow the liberty of the individual to pursue virtue); they will be more than a thorn in the side of those who want to expand liberty to lands that frankly are not getting enough light from the lamp of Lady Liberty.
