Israel and Palestine . . .

… the Adventure Continues.

Alright, that isn’t as funny as I wanted it to be, but there is a reason this joke doesn’t work.  This has been going on since 1947, and there is no end in sight.  Hamas won’t allow it.

I know that it’s become fashionable to blame every problem in the Middle East on Israel, but the truth is far more simple.  Look at all the active trouble spots around the globe.  I mean the places where people with lethal weapons are at each other’s throats with no thoughts of cessation.  One thing becomes overwhelmingly clear:

In most cases, it is Muslim extremists fighting someone who refuses to convert to the Islamic faith.  That is exactly the same situation in Israel/Palestine.  Since it is happening in so many other places, why is anyone thinking that the problem is Israel?  Israel did not kidnap 200 Christian schoolgirls from their classroom.  Israel did not bomb the USS Cole.  Israel did not bomb the US Embassy in Teheran – or Benghazi.

I’ve said elsewhere, but it is worth repeating, that we’re fast approaching the time when “peace-loving” Muslims will no longer be allowed to sit on the sidelines.  The atrocities being committed in the name of the prophet they revere can not be allowed to continue – and if mainstream Muslims will not publicly denounce the terrorists and assist in bringing them to justice, they will be seen by the rest of the world as being complicit in the crimes.  Continued silence means you either accept, condone, encourage, or approve of what the extremists are doing.  Failure by “peace-loving” Muslims to take strong action specifically against the terrorists will result in the rest of the world deciding that Islam is not a religion, but a terrorist organization.

It can not happen any other way – the rest of the world will not bow the knee and convert to Islam.  Religious conversion will not be forced.  I’m not an exceptional person, but I disowned my own mother after she put me in the position of choosing between her and my beliefs.  Christians, atheists, Jews, Wiccans – almost everyone in the West hold their faith above their fear of death.  This is a fight you can not win.

Oh, and those 72 virgins you are supposed to be rewarded with when you die a martyr’s death?  Guess what?  They are all 1/4 Tonne female wrestlers who want to rip your arms out of their sockets.  Have fun!
