Mahatma Gandhi

“I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

--Mahatma Gandhi

Religion might be a good thing if its leaders followed its doctrines. Christ taught peace and love, he was anti-imperialist and anti-rich. (It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God [Matt 10:25]) How many of those does George Bush embody?

I feel the need to respond. Israel is an unstopable power in the Middle East. Unfortunately this may go to Olmert's head. However, there is no reason not to use that area as a buffer zone, since it has already been evacuated and mostly leveled. Why doesn't Secretary Rice broker a treaty now? It could be done.
Also, the Lebanese Christians, a sizeable minority, who have not been bombed, resent Hezbollah more than Israel.
