Ah, that Religion of Peace!

As The Jerusalem Post reports, not all Arabs are pleased that some of their brethren helped Israel battle its forest fire. Some quotations:

"May Allah punish all Arabs who helped put down the fire.We pray to Allah that the fire will grow and spread to oil wells in the Arab world.”

“O Allah, burn them [Jews] before the Day of Judgement.O Allah, destroy them and all the enemies of Islam.”

“May Allah take revenge against them and displace them together with our corrupt [Arab] governments.”

There are plenty more quotes in the article, but you get the drift. So much for Islamic peace, tolerance and respect for non-Muslims, particularly if they happen to be Jews.

Today's (12/8) Boston Globe picked up this research and published it --- should reach a wide audience in this area. ALSO: See pieces by Robert A. Pape and Thomas W. Young in the 12-13-10 issue of The Christian Science Monitor for a poignant juxtaposition of ideals and ideas regarding our (as far as I can see) fruitless military activities abroad.
