« Midnight Basketball... and Football | Main | Edifier du Jour: Mark 3:15-17(NIV) »

August 16, 2010



Actually, I think the real, bottom-line problem is when we turn complicated issues into "A is always wrong and B is always right". Speak out on an atrocity committed by Hamas, and one is "anti Palestinian". Speak out on an atrocity committed by Israel and one is "anti Israel".

Atrocities are always atrocities, no matter who does them. Killing people is always wrong. Stealing is always wrong. Denying individuals their liberty is always wrong. Doesn't matter who does it.

Mark Byron

Pam...anti-Israel might be a bit strong. Militantly pro-Palestinian might be a fairer description, at least militant enough to attack one of the opposition in a non-damaging manner.

However, a lot of the pro-Palestinian groups are anti-Israel in that they would prefer Israel not exist. For instance, Hamas is literally anti-Israel, vowed to destroy it as an entity; it's in their charter.

I can't tell if our young lady here would go to that extent, but I wouldn't be surprised.
