When I defend myself as a human being in a confrontational situation it first requires someone attacking me!
Sticks and stones can break my bones but names can never hurt me.
There for there has to be some sticks and stones involved. Sticks and stones are common things here on planet earth so someone who has called me names
merely having sticks and stones does not mean they are going to attack me with sticks and stones.
So I have to reject the notion of offesnively attacking others simply because they have sticks and stones and called someone names.
The mindset of say a nation like Israel, or the United States or a North Korea or an Iran as having some type of moral authority to dictate who should
have sticks and stones and who shouldn't while EVERYONE calls one another names is well...circusmpect to say the least.
Everyone should have the right to defend themselves and if one nation needs sticks and stones to do that, then any nation who feels the need for
sticks and stones should be entitled and allowed the same.
I believe Israel has a right to exist, but personally believe it only has a right to exist within the borders that were contractually gauranteed to
both Palestinians and Zionists under the Mandate.
I believe Israelis and Palenstinians should be defended equally and all sides should have to dwell within the contractually agreed upon borders of the
If Israel withdrew to the borders that the Mandate had set up for them of 48% of the land, I would support defending that legal right to dwell within
Having over spilled it's borders and broken it's contracts I can not lend it that same level of support presently.
No one is denying the right to Israel protect itself, people are wanting to limit it's latitude in that endeavor to be equal and governed by the same
laws, rules, and oversights that every other nation is subjected to.
As far as G-d goes, whether it's Thor or Zues, Amen or Yahweh, I think good managers inspect what they expect and that managers on permanent vacation
don't and should not play in to any equation or be considered management.
The Bible didn't have to be rewritten because in my humble oppinion Rome wrote it as a testament of how to use superstition and mass manipulation to
one day conquer the entire world and place it under a one world government.
When Thor, Odin, Zues, Columbia, Enki, Renki, Amen, Yahweh, Allah or the Jackson Five show back up to demonstrate some supperior plan and power, if
they ever show up to demonstrate some superior plan and power, then would be a good time to not pretend one knows what they meant, but to discuss it
with them in fact and deed.
Ultimately what you are arguing for is an entitlement on something that can't be backed up in a court of law.
Ultimately what we are talking about here is applying all laws evenly.
So if the laws are not suitable to Israel then they must be bad laws for everyone, so no one should be subjected to them.
That is logic, stone cold logic, as opposed to circular logic, which is not logic but simple wishful thinking for the purpose of claiming entitlement
and the laws should not apply to some group or nation that wants to live above them and not subject to them.
That nation can't in all fairness then insist every other nation abide by them except themselves.
That's hypocracy and unless your G-d is a hypocrite I doubt that's what he intended or meant.
If he is a hypocrite then he needs to show up and prove it's alright for him to be one through a well communicated and refreshed plan and power.
Man should govern man and not in the name of an absentee landlord, but in their own names.
I do and highly recomend it to everyone friend.
The world will be a safer not more dangerous place for that.
