    Put the shoe on the other foot, would it be the same reaction? What if people in the Western World fell to the same fate? Does it make the act right? If we are suppose to believe in the law, then we have to practice it. When we start down the road as we have done this decade doing the War Thing, then are we any better than those we war against? What of the innocent civilians? If we put into perspective the so called collateral damage suffered by our so called enemies, directly to the American civilian population, then by the reasoning used by the Israeli’s, it would be O.K.?

    Well, Charlie, both are crimes in honest people’s estimation, and there are many who will not tire until all the guilty are arraigned in court.
    Revealing comment — Adolf Hitler would be proud of you.
