Filipino's Twisted Sense of Logic

in response to reader comment: Wrong, Kevin!

Kevin may have missed the point... You state that, you "think the Hezbollah fighters are much more courageous than the Israelis are".

Really, what a surprise. According to the reports on the war, Hezbollah was hiding among non-combatant citizens while firing katusha rockets at the Israelis. The Israelis were devoting precious time at their own risk to warn the citizens of Lebanon before they commenced their strikes. The Israelis were trying to prevent injury to the Lebanese citizens, while the brave Hezbollah soldiers were hiding among the innocents. Is that your definition of bravery? By the way, we are leery of blood shed because we do not believe that upon death we're headed for heaven and a host of hot houris a foolish theory concocted by Muhammad to encourage his warriors to fight to the death. And oh yes, I'm really impressed with the brave Muslim.

Lets see, we have about 5 million Jews surrounded by 250 to 300 million Muslims planning to destroy them and you posit that the Muslims are more courageous than the Jews. What a warped twisted sense of logic.
