PDM: I did not personally attack anyone. I called terrorists hateful. I have never, to my knowledge met any terrorists, but their title alone tells me I don't want to meet any. My point was in defending Israel against what janimal stated. He stated Israel deserves the bombs dropped on them.
For my part, I was just attempting to respond to Captain Haddock's response to you in the context of how I read it.
As you must have seen, I said that it wasn't acceptable to call anyone 'hateful'. However, I think that it was meant less as a direct insult than as a parallel response.
I told Janimal that I didn't think that two wrongs made a right and that, while I thought Israel's response was disproportionate, I hated to hear of Israeli civilians being killed, too.
'If Israel bombs the xxxx out of the entire middle east it is well deserved.'
You must have known that it would receive a response and possibly a negative one, because you continued:
'There I said it. Go ahead the rest of you and call me an uncaring Christian. Judge me for making the statement I just did.'
If people believe that bombing civilians is 'hateful' ~ as you seemed to, in an earlier post, then you must see the logic of this description?
I am not suggesting that you have hurt people or that you are a hateful person or that you have insulted anyone on the forum, but I do think that it is wrong to support the slaughter of innocent children, just as I thought that it was wrong to attack the twin towers or the Madrid railways or the London Underground, or the Birmingham pubs.
Terrorism, murder, hatred are all evil, I don't think that we can say that a bad deed committed by one person is less or more hateful than the same bad deed carried out by another.'When someone speaks ill of Israel, my blood boils.' [LordsLady]
Why, if they are doing wrong?
What is now happening is more slaughter of 'Amalekite babies'.
I don't deny what some others have said, that, given the chance, the neighbours of Israel might do the same to them. I just don't know.
What I do know is that Israel is slaughtering innocent peasants and doing so from a country that was simply taken
from its inhabitants. No wonder there is hatred.
