Be Careful What You Wish For

Arabs have for decades claimed Jewish conspiracies were out to get them, and justified some of their support for terrorism because of this. Well guys, now you got yourself a real one. I'm not sure which would scare me more... the thought that a missle could come literally out of nowhere and blow me to bits (predator + hellfire = BOOM!), or the thought that a Mossad agent might be creeping through my window right now.

And anyone who thinks this just proves how unjust Israel is hasn't been paying attention.

Update: Missed this one at first. Should read down FARK a little more sometimes.

Listen folks. The main reason the west took over the world is not because we're smarter than anyone else, or because Christianity is better than everyone else's religion, or because we're richer or prettier than you. Because we're none of those things. Not one.

The west is on top because our military traditions have made our culture the most deadly the world has ever seen, depending on how you count it for more than 2500 years now. It's an ugly truth, and you can rail at us all you like, but there it is. The west built a culture that is much more than that, providing unprecedented wealth, protection, and opportunity to its citizens, but all of these things, all of these things, are built on a foundation of blood and gore and violence so ruthless, cold and efficient we scare ourselves with its power.

Many of you, even in the west, will claim this power is too great and too unjust and too concentrated. Hell, you're probably right.

But you've only begun to see what happens to people who try and take it all away from us.

Israel pound for pound and inch by inch makes us look mild. They don't talk it too death, worry and argue that everyone will hate them, and then announce to the whole world what they are going to do and when. They just step in and get the job done, of course they have absolutely no choices.

I just hope that everyone would/could learn from history. Then there would probably be close to "peace on earth". Impossible dreams?
