  1. Isreal should shoot the stone throwers. A baby a bus driver. If America determined what weapons we use based on the capabilities of the enemy we’d all be throwing stones at eachother.

  7. Elyse Dorm says:

    israel needs to instate stricter laws against stone throwers, anyone caught throwing anything should be deported. Too bad Israel did not do the right thing at the end of 6 day war,and did not expel all muslims from the region, this is why there is so much trouble now.

  8. Elyse, I totally agree with you about Israel instating imprisonment for stone throwers, however I do not think that expelling the Muslims from Israel after the 6 Day War, would have changed anything. These people do not want to recognize the State of Israel and want all Jews killed. This is their agenda. Having said that, there are a handful of Palestinians living in Israel who truly love Israel and appreciate the life there.

  9. What’s wrong with the Arab’s see it well I did not spell it with a small a, It’s those leaders in their office.

  25. Ronny Mol says:

    Isn't time that Bibi learn from the Jewish Bible, King David did NOT negotiate and make peace with the Phillistines (who were NOT from Israel, they came from the sea – from another place) he killed them until they left him and the Jewish nation alone. Why have an army if they cannot shoot to kill?

    Slingers

    I've got an article out of a magazine “Giant Slayer: The unsung sling was low-tech, low-class and as lethal as a modern handgun” by foster Grunfeld. (I wish I could find it online.) My favorite part of the article was a sidebar that pretty much summed it up: “We must get hold of slingers and cavalry as soon as we can…According to Xenophon, the Persians did no further damage by their old methods of long-range fighting, since the Rhodians could sling farther than the Persian slingers and farther even than most of their archers.”

    Also people should read the Roman doctor Celsus and his description of removing “bullets”. There's actually a Fresco of Pompeii showing a Roman surgeon “extracting a projectile”.

    The Greeks and Romans used to inscribe messages on their stones; “For Pompey's Backside”.

    When I was a kid I got hit in the back of the head by a rock thrown a block away from this other kid who got “lucky”. No Fun.

    It also said in the Grunfeld article “Local folklore has it that Balearic Slingers could sink ships at more than 500 yard. This sounds far-fetched, but nevertheless the Romans, when they arrived to conquer Mallorca in 123 BC after severl failed attempts, first stretched hides above the decks as protection against sling bullets and other projectiles.”

    I'm reading Caesar's Civil War. (I've read the Wiseman's Battle for Gaul twice). Slinger's were an important and deadly addition to these armies.

    It's too bad the Palestinians can't grasp the old “sticks and stones” adage. But I guess that's their point.

    These “stone throwers” should be treated as the contemptible attempted murderers that they are. It makes me sick that they haven't kicked these genocidal scum off the Temple Mount.

    At one time I had tolerance for all religions. That all changed with Islam. When I was a kid I was chanting “nam myo ho renge kyo” to a piece of paper. Hitch-hiking back east I hung out with the Children of God. I used to go to the Family Home Evenings with a Morman shipmate of mine in the Navy.

    Thing is, Islam is a disease, and Muslims are the symptom. I have no sympathy or empathy for them or their sick “religion of peace”. Especially after making an honest effort at understanding their religion and finding “Jihad in the Qur'an and Sunnah” by 'Sheikh Abdullâh bin Muhammad bin Humaid in a Summarized Bukhari I'd ordered online. It was submitted almost as an Introduction. It scared me so bad I wrote a canned pitch I throw around like a religious tract:

    (Part of what scared me was this guy was a “an ex-chief Justice of Saudi Arabia. I've also found out a lot about Saudi Arabia since then.)

    “While Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, Parsees and Jews, along with several million adherents of an animistic religion, all coexisted in relative harmony, one religion that would not accept compromise stood out from the rest: Islam.” Mahatma Gandhi

    “we may describe it, (jihad), as a surgeon's lancet and not a butcher's knife.” Mahmoud Mohammed Taha (I'm sure there are about 200 million dead people that would disagree with him. And this from the guy who's been called the Mahatma Ghandi of Islam.)

    About two years ago I ordered some reading material, including Taha's "Second Message", and a “study” Koran to find out what this "Islam thing" was all about. When I was sixteen I was chanting nam yo ho renge kyo to a piece of paper, (gahonzen?), having NO idea what I was doing. A few years later, hair down to my ass and a knapsack on my back, I hitchhiked cross country, got saved in Nashville Tenn. and went to live on a Christian farm in Mansfield Ohio. (Not the prison.) My gra'mom called me a "seeker". As I said, there came a time when I wanted to understand this "religion of peace". It was Humaid's article on jihad I found in my Summarized Bukhari that decided “things” for me.

    If Islam is the “religion of peace”, where in Sheikh Abdullah bin Humaid's article on jihad can I find the equivalent of “Love Thy Neighbor” and “good will toward men”? And explain its prominence, and significance almost as an “Introduction”, in a book that's described as “the most authentic and true among the books of the Prophet”: My Summarized Sahih Al-Bukhari. Also address “jihad” as it's defined in Reliance of the Traveller and answer the same question. (Chapter O-9.0: Jihad O: “Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion.” And explain why the “greater” jihad is only mentioned once here and never seen again in this “Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law”.)

    Compare Humaid's “jihad” and Emmet Fox' Sermon on the Mount and tell me which one best represents a spirit of Love and “compassion”.

    Please, if you want people to understand this “right of return” sham have them read The Haj by Leon Uris and Because They Hate by Brigitte Gabrielle. The two books that put a fire under my ass to start understanding this “Islam thing”. (They should also be sold as a gift set.)

    Islam's Hatred of the Non-Muslim by David Bukay
    http://www.meforum.org/3545/islam-hatred-non-muslim
    Conclusion of article: “The doctrine of al-Wala wal-Bara is critical to understanding the Islamic world-view and its perception of the other as it is second only to attesting to tawhid, the oneness of God, for the faithful. Faith is incomplete without it, and it is the criterion used to distinguish between believers and the enemies of Islam. Tawhid will never be achieved on earth until believers apply al-Wala wal-Bara through adherence to Muhammad's way of life (as-Sirat al-Mustaqim).”
