Some time ago (years ago) I began to suspect that the situation in the Middle East was not as the MSM depicted it. Recently I received an email
forward from one of my friends at the church I used to attend. I thought it smelled funny so I forwarded to my dear mother (who still attends church)
with a comment added. I essentially told her that the church should be in the business of declaring the gospel of Jesus and not in the business of
blindly supporting Israel. She responded in short that my opinion was "debatable". I suppose it is. I personally believe that the Christian church
should come clean, denounce Israel's deplorable actions, and go back to their Gospel roots. Here is the body of the email:
Subject: Fw: [Road 90] Update: Israel at war

Help the IDF soldiers by sending them food! We already sold 70 pizzas,
each of them feeding 4 soldiers, and thus provided food to 280 of them.
Our minimal objective is to provide food for 1,000 soldiers, we need your
help! Buy a pizza for the IDF soldiers now.
It has been 3 days now that the ground operation in Gaza
started, and that IDF soldiers are fighting Hamas terrorists, in order to
protect Israeli children. Unfortunately, this did not come without losses.
We mourn the loss of 5 IDF soldiers, since the beginning of the ground
operation. May their memory be blessed.
Our thought and prayers are with their families and with all those other
young men and women fighting for freedom, security and peace, at the
expense of their lives. Here are some of the newest videos we have about
the situation, please forward these links to all your friends and

ROAD 90 LLC, 220 E. Delaware Avenue, #1027
Newark, DE 19711, U.S.A. Forward to a friend » Road 90 is the longest road
in Israel, starting in the city of Metula in the north and going to Eilat,
on the Red Sea, in the south. The purpose of this road is the same as this
website: to travel, discover and share."
This stinks. I'm assuming whoever originated this email was serious and not tongue-in-cheek. BTW, anyone have any info on these "Road 90"
characters? And when did the church cease being the Light of The World and start being Israel's cheerleaders? There's no mention of the suffering of
the many Palestinians, just the very few Israelis. Anyone else bugged by this?
