Palestinians protest again Tuesday near Khan Younis on Gaza’s border with Israel.

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations said Tuesday that Israel had reacted with restraint in its military response to protesters at the Gaza border and dismissed suggestions that the violence was caused by the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem.

Stir up a noxious brew of religious fanaticism, ethnic hatred, and diplomatic buffoonery: who could have imagined a novice son-in-law's leadership in the Middle East peace negotiations would turn out badly?
Only the rational.

One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter, and they are often both wrong.

The good book informs us that the Lord says to Abraham,I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse,” This blessing included land at the time the promise was made, belonged to other people.

why this transfer of ownership was appropriate!. “the earth is the LORD's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it” As the Creator of the earth, God has the right to do with it as He pleases.

giving the land to Abraham’s descendants was, in part, a judgment on the sinful Canaanites. his statement clearly shows that God had a reason for wresting the land from the Canaanites—namely, their sin.

God’s promise to make Abraham prosperous would virtually require giving him large amounts of land. Though there were many nations living in Canaan when Israel crossed the Jordan River, God’s promise to Abraham was Israel’s claim to the land."To your offspring I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river Euphrates, the land of the Kenites, the Kenizzites, the Kadmonites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Jebusites. A christian nation of course must accept this so that the bended knee predicted can come true, and will kill to insure the possibility remains.

Certainly reason to be a "dick" if divine command is involved. Guess we can see where the evangelicals get their morality from, an action that under modern civilized thought would require the perpetrators be tried for crimes against humanity at Nuremberg regardless of heir fever dreams.

Mac are you talking about the ILKS in the photos of white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va.? Man what thugs! They tell me they were white christians.

And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron. I kid you not!

“It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.” ― Voltaire

Nikki Haley is a beast of a diplomat. Luv Nikki Haley, the successor as POTUS to Donald J. Trump.
Reckon why these peaceful protestors are gathering rocks behind those tires they've set on fire? Are they cold? Are they using the rocks to landscape a house? Do they enjoy polluting the air? Are they practicing for the Palestine shot put team?
Would one of you Hamas sympathizers please answer my questions?
Reports of "peaceful protestors" is the epitome of fake news.
