We waited until the blast had passed, walked out of the shelter and then it was extremely solemn. We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita: Vishnu is trying to persuade the prince that he should do his duty, and to impress him he takes on his multiarmed form and says, 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.' I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.

How about you go educate yourself?

The Bush and Obama Admins have lost numerous court fight over habeas corpus rights, searches without judicial oversight, and withholding evidence from the courts.

Just to mention a few.

Here is one example......it took me 5 seconds to google it.

I posted a link to an extensive legal opinion on the matter, however you must read the content within the link. I could use several pages worth of specific examples, but then we would be getting off the topic of "Helen Thomas asks a taboo question".

However, if folks wish, by all means start a thread on the Patriot Act for members to debate the infringement of personal liberties and Constitutional rights.

That's a stretch. I was talking about the creation of the state of Israel.

Helen Thomas deserves some respect. Why attack how people look? Seems shallow.

Your correct, that was a very shallow statement. Agreed.

So let me see if I get this straight. Creating a state for a perpetually oppressed ethnic group after a serious attempt at their mass extinction somehow was a bad idea because it didn't bode well with that region -- particularly with those that would have loved to see them extinct -- was on the same level as the creation of nuclear bombs? Or maybe the creation of nuclear bombs -- a design that could take all the bombs of a world war and contain them in one mass explosion -- was less of an agitation?

Yup, and now that we are headed toward commun.......er, sociali......ummm, whatever we are headed toward, we need a new villain to keep us distracted while the powers that be work their agenda on the masses?

Yachtcare has spoken.......

The answer is simple. Muslims think that Islam should be the only religion on the planet. They attack us because we are the strongest nation of Christians. It has nothing to do with Israel or being on their holy land, that is just an excuse. If we stopped all that, they would still continue and make up another excuse. Read the Koran, it states in there that Islam should be the world dominate religion and that is what Jihad is all about.
