The Schoolmarms Tell the Terrorists to Play Nice

Thomas Friedman (Photo: Charles Haynes)

Barry Rubin demolishes New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman:

 The entertainment director on the ship of fools that constitutes so much mainstream analysis of the Middle East—I refer, of course, to Thomas Friedman—has produced a wonderful paragraph that beautifully characterizes the problem, exquisitely expressing  a Western mentality that not only makes it impossible to understand the Middle East but even to set up the question in a way people that could help people even begin to confront the truth.

    Has anyone told the Israel’s enemies and the world that Israel will be no more when the SUN and MOON are no more? Israel’s demise is the world’s demise.

    I believe we should follow God’s instructions and pray for the peace of God chosen city And his chosen people. We often forget that GOD is always in control; even when we cannot or do not recognize it

    There is no amount of political dialogue that will prevent the enemies for pursuing their goal of a one world order. They are bent on destruction and what I consider to be a sub-human thought process.

    If Mr. Friedman does not understand the facts regarding the centuries old family feud leading to present day continual conficts in the Middle East countries against Israel, I suggest he at least read the HISTORY tab on this site and sit down with a Bible on occasion. Making nice? You have got to be kidding!

    Wow! You talk about a run-on sentence! But, he does make a pertinent point. May our Holy Lord & Saviour, Y’shua, come quickly & put an end to the lack of peace between Yahweh & mankind! Amen.

Rabbi's Commentary
Rejoicing in God’s Word

The festive Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah ends and begins the annual cycle of Torah readings in synagogue. It is God’s Word that offers comfort and hope to Jews and Christians alike, reminding us of His permanent presence in our constantly changing world.
