Subject: RE: BS: Bush's *Big Stick* Foriegn Policy...
And if it's the FIRST time you ever heard that Christianity was spread by the sword, Troll....then you've had your ears shut for a very, very long time!

The Jews, the Muslims, and the Christians all have a history drenched in the blood of peoples who would not willingly convert to to "the one true faith". Interestingly enough, those 3 religions all sprang from the same root...

The earliest genocide in that ancient tradition of killing people and taking their land, well described in the Bible, seems to have occurred when the Jews entered "the promised land" and exterminated its inhabitants at Jericho and a variety of other such places. Since they are praised for having done so in the Holy Book...the same Holy Book revered by the later Muslims and Christians, is it any surprise that those religions spread themselves in the same manner, by violence and conquest and land theft?

I tell you, the Israelis and their bitterest Islamic opponents are cut from the same cloth when it comes to that sort of thing. Neither of them has a thing to be proud of or self-righteous about. Neither one of them can claim to be the excusive "victim" of someone else's aggression. They are both aggressors, one against the other.
