    Perhaps Arafat and his terrorists friends need more diversity training. Let's all join hands and sing Kum-Bya while America's Roadmap suppports the destruction of Israel. I'm proud of ya Bush. What a smart guy you are. You did what no other president before you could do. You said, "Let there be peace in Israel." and bam, there it was. The Muslim terrorist became peace loving friends of the world and did away with their plans to kill all Jews. [​IMG] :rolleyes: [​IMG]

    Agreed. Hmmm....seem to remember some people on this very board believing that once Christian and Jewish holy sites come under Islamic rule, all would be well. :rolleyes: Yeh, right. [​IMG]

    I would argue that sites, as well as artifacts, cannot be holy. Only God is holy. People should not venerate things or places.

    Arafat is such a thug. You know that if he is warning about the possibility of an offensive, he's got something in the works.

    Considering how sensitive that site is to both sides, it would behoove everyone to not do anything that would be considered provocative by either side.

    Perhaps you could explain to us what the Jewish people did at the temple which provoked these nuts? :confused:

    I just don't seem to see it in this article. Was it the fact that they were practicing their religion? Or is thier very existence what is provacative to these idiot terrorists? These people don't want peace, never have, never will. All they want is to kill Jews.

    Aren't there only Muslim religious buildings there? Why would someone visiting there want to perform a non-Muslim ritual and irritate other people?

    As I understand it, there are Jews(fortunately a small minority) as well as Palestinians who would be quite content with an all-out perpetual war between the two groups.

    So, it boils down to how we all have to act in order to get along with people. There are things that in and of themselves are not wrong but you don't do them because you don't want to aggravate and cause turmoil with other people.

    For example, I work with African-Americans and what if I decided I wanted to put a small Confederate flag on my desk like I have of the U.S. flag and the Arkansas flag. Is there anything wrong in and of itself for me to have a Confederate flag on my desk - nope - it used to fly over Arkansas from 1861-1865 - it is a part of the heritage of this state and of my heritage as a Southerner. But what if it would offend some of my co-workers who have been indoctrinated that the Confederate flag is an evil to be stamped out(we have never discussed the flag issue at work so I don't know if it would be a problem or not)? To me, I would keep my Confederate flag(and I do have one) at home and not display it at work because I want to get along with other people and keep turmoil to a minimum.

    In like fashion, there is no necessity for Jews to perform religious rituals around mosques. At least not if getting along with other people is one's goal. It would be like Christians going there and setting up a baptismal pool and immersing people in front of the mosques. Is that necessary to be faithful to one's religion - nope.

    It all boils down to whether or not one wishes to follow the Prince of Peace or not. [​IMG]
