The loss of human life in political conflicts has to be condemned by all. Not in m y name.
Politically or religiously it has no place at our table........
Let us speak forever: Hamas is not a terrorist organisation //// the occupierIsrael has started a war again, stealing land, placing illegal settlements, detaining children and killing Palestinians.
Dear Mr. Kreeft, We say when someone hit's reality ' you put your finger on the wound ' and you did so.You can add to what you just wrote, among other things, house demolishing and trees up-rooting . can you imagine a people call themselves civilized people and launch a systematic war against trees ? specially olive trees and some of these trees were during the life of Jesus, peace be upon Him.?
Israel has chronically and flagrantly violated and the US chronically and irresponsibly ignored our Arms Export Control Act as well as our Foreign Assistance Act. In the Mavi Marmara attack and massacre alone, weapons from nine US companies were used. As the recent UNGA vote clearly revealed, we are held in contempt by almost all the world for our knee-jerk support and UNSC veto protection of Israel from international justice. Israeli occupation of Washington DC must end.
Your post is good up to "Israeli occupation of Washington DC must end." Israel is not occupying Washington, nor does it control American foreign policy in the Middle East. As the world's chief imperialist, America does that all by itself. To use "Israeli occupation" in that way, is to imply that Israel (and Jews) are an irresistible force that ties poor America's hands and forces her to do their bidding. But America's intentions are not benign: they are formulated to serve the needs of her...
Your post is good up to "Israeli occupation of Washington DC must end." Israel is not occupying Washington, nor does it control American foreign policy in the Middle East. As the world's chief imperialist, America does that all by itself. To use "Israeli occupation" in that way, is to imply that Israel (and Jews) are an irresistible force that ties poor America's hands and forces her to do their bidding. But America's intentions are not benign: they are formulated to serve the needs of her capitalist class, in particular the military-industrial complex. Israel suffers the fate of being America's front man in the Middle East and as her servant, has committed crimes against the Palestinians and may do so against the Iranians. But Israel's not in charge. A complex ideology of entitlement supports Zionism's ambitions there, but to attribute the kind of power to Israel that you imply smacks of mystification, and finally, anti-Semitism. It's a disease that has spread rapidly through the left, and is the progressive movement's Achilles heel.
Enough is enough, Israel should stop the killing of Palestinians specially children.
You are quite right. Does that mean that everybody else around there, like Hamas, like Hezbollah, like Irak and like many other Jew-hating person over there will stop their bad behaviour too? Than we have finally both reached our goal! Ofcourse, that one party is doing wrong does not mean that the other party can go along. But pointing the finger to one while it takes too to fght, is a bit too easy in my point of vieuw.....!
spread the word everywhere and every way u can.
I am nagging at my friends and family on FB for not signing and have said it's easy or us who are safe from harm to not sign and not see that it's when many voices shout loud enough maybe there is chance for change.
Take the life of any human being, is not entitled to any person... much less by political ideals... are criminals and they saw to be judged!
there goes the saying---KNOW GOD; KNOW PEACE. WHERE THERE IS NO GOD; THERE IS NO PEACE. MUST PLANT THE BEST SEED AND HARVEST THE BEST.
Certo Concordo. Onde não há Deus não há paz.
It's time for the USA and the rest of the world to regonize the state of Israel is created on the land that belong to the Palestinian people it was not an empty land when the Jews immigrated from Europe and the rest of the world to the land of Palestine it's like the Palestinians now ask for a piece of Germany because some of the Palestinian people are Christians I know in every decent person including some Jews every one knows this is the real truth. It's time the Palestinians get justice
Maybe we should stop the row on who's land it is as that's what started this and concentrate on stopping the weapons that are being used against innocent men, women and children. I feel that's what any human being of any faith who is awake should and would do.
It is time to hold Isreal for killing innocent Children we just want justice for everybody.
India and Israel are the worst kind of perpetrators of human rights

So, are you saying, Israel should not destroy the bombers of Israeli civilians because the Arabs surround their rocket launchers with their civilian population?
It is interesting that Hamas, with all its 'wings' had arranged to send missiles and mortar rounds into southern Israel towns for months frightening women and children into 'safe room' bunkers and the world was deaf and dumb.
Not a peep was heard in the halls of 'friendly' democratic and king ruled countries until the government of...
Not a peep was heard in the halls of 'friendly' democratic and king ruled countries until the government of Irael said "enough" and exercised its right to defend its citizens to put an end to the Hama's hostile activity which began following Israel's forced withdrawal of all of its citizens from Gaza.
The empty cries of "proportionality" aimed at inciting the world against Israel fail to impress folks who lived, and still do, under incoming random missiles, particularly when their government removed all of its people from their homes and hot-houses which the folks who elected Hamas as their government, instead of taking advantage of that which was left by Israel, promptly destroyed it all.
Now we hear the cries of "victim" from these poor Palestinians who danced in the streets when the "World Trade Center" towers came down in New York City, victims of terrorists. Cries which are echoed by their brother supporters in this world today.
Where is the proportionality? Where is the "fairness" and "objectivity" doctrine in the liberal media today? This is the ultimate example of how the minds of "right thinking" folks go askew when the subject involves Jewish folks. Oh yes, stop the fighting, open all the Gaza crossings into Israel and Egypt. Lets leave Hamas intact so they can re-arm, rebuild their tunnels and renew their avowed aim to eliminate Israel.
Now, if the Arabs in Gaza want to get on with their lives and take care of their children, let them sue for peace and negotiate permanent borders with Israel, having LOST THE WARS THEY STARTED. If they are unable or unwilling to accept the facts they ARE UNABLE TO DEFEAT ISRAEL -- they are responsible for their own situation, and will continue to lose land and any opportunity for peace and growth.
So, Amna, it was okay for the Zionists to "ethnically cleanse" Palestine in the 20th Century because Jews had been persecuted for centuries...by others? Can you put yourself in a Palestinian's sandals? Please read Professor Ilan Pappe's courageous history "The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine." And that's just a starter; a next step would be to visit www.ifamericansknew.org .
The Israelis have had all of 60 years to exterminate Palestinians, yet the "genocide" hasn't stopped the Palestinian population from growing at a steady rate.
It's a slower genocide compared to the one the Jews suffered in Germany. Palestinians have had the much longer oppression . I'd say more than three generations have been affected.
No More Killng!
