Helping our Enemies

Liberals are naive enough to think that the reason terrorists hate us is because we don’t do enough to help them. One recent quote I read was this:

We want to address violent acts by extremists? We look to deal with the root causes of poverty, lack of education and perceived attacks against Islam.

A top Palestinian representative, Sheik Ahmad Bahr, is calling for the death of all Americans and Jews.

Here is a portion of his “sermon” at a Sudan mosque last Friday:

"You will be victorious" on the face of this planet. You are the masters of the world on the face of this planet. Yes, [the Koran says that] "you will be victorious," but only "if you are believers." Allah willing, "you will be victorious," while America and Israel will be annihilated.”

"Oh Allah, vanquish the Jews and their supporters. Oh Allah, count their numbers, and kill them all, down to the very last one. Oh Allah, show them a day of darkness.”

Guess who the single biggest donor of assistance to the Palestinian people has been? The United States of America. So much for dealing “with the root causes of poverty, lack of education and perceived attacks against Islam.”

Frank Salvato addresses this issue well:

The United States has given over $1.5 billion in aid to the Palestinians over the past decade, channeling most of the aid through non-governmental entities. Over the same period of time the vitriol aimed at the United States coming from the leaders of Hamas, and those groups aligned with Hamas, not to mention the Palestinian people, has grown exponentially. The experiment of trying to buy the child’s love has failed miserably and, as in real life, the child has grown to resent the adult, this time to the point of wanting to kill him.

Now contrast Bahr's words with these words from Scripture:

"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised." Luke 4:18

Islam - the Religion of Peace.

I am vexed by idiots and wearied by fools.... If it weren't so important that I counter their idiocy I'd leave them to it. But as the world currently stands, many of these idiots and fools are in positions of power, or in position to influence power.
