Posted on 09/04/2004 8:00:04 AM PDT by jolie560
THE mass murder of children revolts the human psyche. Herod sending his henchmen to massacre the infants of Bethlehem haunts the Gospels. Nothing in our time was crueler than what the Germans did to children during the Holocaust. Slaughtering the innocents violates a universal human taboo. Or a nearly universal one. Those Muslims who preach Jihad against the West decided years ago that killing Jewish or Christian children is not only acceptable, but pleasing to their god when done by "martyrs."
It isn't politically correct to say this, of course. We're supposed to pretend that Islam is a "religion of peace." All right, then: It's time for Muslims to stand up for the once-noble, nearly lost traditions of their faith and condemn what Arab and Chechen terrorists and blasphemers did in the Russian town of Beslan.
If Muslim religious leaders around the world will not publicly condemn the taking of children as hostages and their subsequent slaughter if those "men of faith" will not issue a condemnation without reservations or caveats then no one need pretend any longer that all religions are equally sound and moral.

great cartoon. were I more computer literate, I'd post one I have of a turbin wearin' guy at a suicide bomber class

Vigilante justice is at times necessary.
If it makes you uncomfortable Become a police officer.
My Dad had a good saying "Crap or get off the Pot!"
A gut-wrenching story of "Sophie's Choice", at:
In other words, those with the courage to condemn the acts of terrorists will do little more than receive your scorn, and the terrorists' anger.
Nice job, reward someone brave enough to speak out against terrorists and place their lives in danger for doing so, with contempt.
Then you wonder why more don't do it.
Are you pro-life, or pro-choice?
In the end, your movement appears to have only loyal and active supporters. Now you are in total control, for who would dare speak out against you? As Hitler said, 10 years before he finally rose to power, "The National Socialist Movement will in the future ruthlessly prevent if necessary by force all meetings or lectures that are likely to distract the minds of our fellow countrymen." In other words, all opposition is evil and we will protect you from it.
You are an enabler to the terrorist's agenda.
Who is urging pacifism?
I am against becoming monsters to fight monsters.
Did we burn Nazis alive in ovens or gas them after WWII?
No, we did not, those left alive were brought to justice.
Anyone who reads what I have to say, and sees the words of a pacifist, is an intentional fool.
Actually, Herod was a Jew- albeit from a Jordanian-based desert tribe that was forcibly converted. He also married Mariamne- a descendant of the Jewish ruling nobility- and then slaughtered her family- to bolster his legitimacy to rule the land of the Jews.
Now, just one more little step - and we can start talking about methods to deal with is-slime in a highly proactive manner.
Are Abe Foxman and Al Franken descended from that line?
Sorry for such a delayed response. MSM means Main Stream Media.
Actually, this is WW IV.
We won WW III, from 1945-89. It was fought in many theatres, from Korea to Cuba to Berlin.
The current war is every bit as global.
"The author said 'An attack on children is an attack on all humanity.' Truer words have never been spoken."
This line reminds me of how Woodrow Wilson characterized the German U-boat attacks against civilian ships in World War I. The massive loss of civilian life in the North Atlantic gave Wilson enough popular support to send troops to France, despite having won in 1916 on the theme of having kept the U.S. out of the war.
Well said. If Muslims in general truly repudiate and denounce terrorism in the name of Islam we would know it. One thing our lefty press would not withhold from us is that. Yet we hear next to nothing. ROP fails the smell test.
There is no power beyond Your power and no glory beyond Your glory. You truly are the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. Many attempt to reject Your glory, Your Son, and Your command, but it is they who pass away while You are from everlasting to everlasting.
Among those who have turned against You are those who this week murdered hundreds of school children in Russia. They are led by others involved with Al Qaeda and led by such men as Osama bin Laden and al Zawahiri his aide. We know, Lord God, that Your Son has said "Let the little children come unto me...for of such is the Kingdom of God." Likewise, Jesus has said that it would be better for those who injure the children if "a millstone were tied around their necks and they were cast into the sea."
It is clear that Osama bin Laden, al Qaeda, and its other leaders have now irrefutably, consciously targeted little children. They stripped them, abused them, and then murdered them.
We pray specifically for the soon capture or killing of the murderer Osama bin Laden. The blood of children cries to heaven from the earth.
Divinely guide those special warriors of our nation who look for him. Provide even more guidance to those believing warriors, Your Gideon's Army, who are in their ranks. Protect them from all their enemies, foreign and domestic, and guide them unerringly to this murderer, bin Laden and his aide, al Zawahiri.
We pray in the name of Jesus Christ; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
That's right, I do challenge your post, I do not believe in forced conversions. Forced conversions is one of the tenets of extreme Islam.
If you favor forced conversions, you are no better than a Muslim extremist.
Let me ask you something...
Can you be forced to convert to Islam?
It's not that I am a man of little discernment, it is rather that you are a man of false Christianity.
You've just turned this into a world-wide war of religions. While Muslim extremists misrepresent the Qu'ran to their followers by telling them that in order to be a good Muslim, one must convert the infidels by force if necessary, the mainstream (90%) of Muslims understand that this is a false interpretation.
However, the Qu'ran does very specifically instruct the believers to fight to the death anyone who attacks Islam, and tries to forcefully convert them. So the moment that we begin forced conversions, you've declared war on all Muslims everywhere.
Coulter is wrong just as you are wrong.
Following yours and Coulter's advise will do little more than elevate this to an Apocalyptic scale.
I didn't say anything, nor did Coulter, about "forced" conversions. God converts whom He wills at His pleasure.
You are a man of false Christianity.
Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. -- Matthew 7:15-20.
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

"Well, the howling wolf will howl tonight,
The king snake will crawl,
Trees that've stood for a thousand years
Suddenly will fall...
He could be standing next to you,
The person that you'd notice least.
I hear that sometimes
Satan comes as a man of peace."
Bob Dylan -- "Man of Peace"
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. -- Luke 17:1-3
Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come.

I didn't see any repentance among the Islamofascist terrorists. I only saw photos of dead children and a small cross in a bloodied hand.
Perhaps you missed them.
I did not see the photo of the child with the cross in his little hand. But you have not told me this of yourself but of the Holy Spirit. This verifies that no matter the passage be about young children or the young siblings of Christ that this prayer is within the will of God.
If you ask anything in my name it will be done.
If you have faith as the grain of a mustard seed you would say to this mountain, 'Be thou removed and be cast into the sea!' and it would be done.
Quit being an idiot; the pictures are everywhere to be seen.
You want to convert the fanatics who would do this in the name of their religion to Christianity, a religion they consider evil incarnate, "the Great Satan". How would you go about it by using something other than force?
What would it take for them to convert you to Islam?
They can't convert you anymore than you can convert them.
And quote scripture to someone else, I am quite capable of reading The Word on my own.
You can't convert the kind of people who do things such as this, you must kill them, and pray that God forgives them...I sure will not.
The citizens of these countries would also be justified in killing those who murder the innocent. Justice is not going to be served by their governments. And mealy mouthed apologies this late in the bloodbath are meaningless.
For a pacifist, you're pretty aggressive.
They can't convert you any more than you can convert them.
Only God converts.
You must kill them, and pray that God forgives them.
That was my point. You said I would be no better than the terrorists with that line of thinking.
But I'm glad that God has chosen to convert you to the truth.
For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain. Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies. -- Psalm 139:19-22.
Surely thou will slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.
For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain.
Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?
I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies. -- Psalm 139:19-22.
A "perfect hatred" bump to you, too.
"I did not see the photo of the child with the cross..."
I agree - killing, not converting, is what the Islamofascists need.
In satisfyingly large numbers, and sooner rather than later.
Peace will come.
So, you're wrong once.
"Only God converts."
Man finds God, God does not find man; He doesn't need to...and now you've been wrong twice.
"That was my point."
No, you said you agreed with Coulter, kill the leaders and convert the rest, I took issue with the forced conversion...now, you've been wrong three times.
"But I'm glad that God has chosen to convert you to the truth."
And now, you seem to believe that you are privy to His inner thoughts...not only are you consistently wrong, but there's a good probability that you're fruitier than my great-aunt Lidia's Christmas Fruit Cake.
Hey, xzins, this is where Arminianism ends up. Hubris.
Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." -- Ephesians 2:8-10.
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." -- Ephesians 2:8-10.
"According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love." - Ephesians 1:4
Thank you for the photo, my sister.
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored.
They have violated one of the little ones who believe in him.
You know I don't believe that.
I believe that God enlightens.
It's that simple.
I just found it odd that this belief we share should provoke some to use words like "fruitcake." 8~)
You don't understand. What she is saying is that the conversion itself is an act of God irrespective of what the convertee thinks of it prior to the conversion taking place.
She is correct.
In Christianity an Islamic could be as easily the target of God as could a foppish crossdresser at a gay-rights parade.
Retribution is not terrorism.
Sometimes the only way to rid a house of termites is to take down the building.
Anyone who sees the photos of these dead children and urges pacifism is a fool.
Not to derail the debate, but why is it that I only hear this "fight fire with fire" strategy in reference to our fight against terrorism and never in connection with the even more horrific holocaust of abortion going on in our own backyard?
I would love, love to see Mecca destroyed.
These photos and others like them need to be plastered across the U.S. on billboards. American citizens need to be constantly reminded of the Hell these innocent people went through when they realized they had no chance for rescue and had no other alternative but to jump to their deaths.
Welcome to my world
If God wanted to convert them, they'd be converted.
So, you would love to fight a billion Muslim rather than the relatively small percentage of extremists we're fighting now?
Yeah...sounds like a brilliant plan to me.
If God wants them converted they will be so willingly in His own good time.
All those who publicly issued a death sentence against Salman Rushdie for his literary musings should be asked: what is your position on those who shoot five year-olds in the back in the name of Allah?
So Coulter's solution of killing their leaders and converting them to Christianity is just so much hot wind I guess, because regardless of what she may say, His time line, not Ann's, will be implemented as far as those conversions are concerned.
This is a fight for the heart and soul of Islam, and Muslims are being asked to take sides. I don't know what He holds in store for them, but I can figure out what the combined military might of the nations of the West do.
If there are to be any conversions, we may be going about it wrong.
My favorite trumpet player, and from my home town no less!
Yes, it was an attempt at hard-nosed humor and not at serious theology.
I've never thought of ann as a theologian....nor as a nun. :>)
Nutty, but not too sweet, with just a hint of Pine Sol. 8~)
Yep, this is their absolutely last chance to take the right moral stand.
