    I guess to believe that you have to ignore the fact that Hizbollah started this by kidnapping two Israeli soilders and that Hamas started this by kidnapping an Israeli soilder. There is no agression on Israel's part. Israel is simply defending itself against those who have willfully kidnapped, killed, and willfully blown up Israeli civilians, and kidnapped Israeli soldiers. The person who made the above statement is not living in the real world. What is truly sad, however is the fact that there are many people around the world who are ready, willing, and desire to believe the lies put out by the Syrian government.

    Why are so many people willing to believe such things? Because our schools do a poor, and I mean poor, job (in general) of teaching history. Not just American History, but history in general. If a person does not know the history of the area (both ancient and recent) a person is in danger of believing something that is not true. I guess history means little to a post-modern culture though, right? :(

    Actually, truth means very little to the post modern generation because all truth is subjective and there is always something deeper than what we see. I just read a book about the Emerging Church by Dan Kimball which addresses this very aspect of the post modern culture at length. Since there is no objective truth, clear common sense is meaningless to this generation.

    Someone once said "God is dead." For many generations, now and to come, truth is dead. They "shout it from the housetops" in liberal churches and our NEA-dominated educational system, that Ted Kennedy loves so much.
