Subject: RE: BS: Bush's *Big Stick* Foriegn Policy...
I note that you said your "wife and son are both Jewish", by the way. You didn't say that you are. So, I may have made a mistake in assuming so in my previous post. In any case, you have a personal axe to grind in the matter, which was my point. You will never understand the perfectly legitimate concerns of Muslims (just as many of them will never understand the legitimate concerns of Jews) long as you both keep clinging to that bitter ax you have to grind.

I, frankly, have no axe to grind in a quarrel between Jews and Muslims, but I always just naturally side with the relatively powerless and disenfranchised many instead of with the powerful few who hold military supremacy and invade whom they choose whenever they choose...and who normally kill 50 or a hundred persons for every person they lose.

That's why I come down hard on the USA and Israel for their agressive policies. They are the hammer in this conflict. The Muslims are the nail.
