Nathan Bond's TART Remarks

Religion: Respect? Ridicule!

The elephant in the room

with 6 comments

The Israelis and the Palestinians are killing each other in Gaza. Barack Obama is monitoring the situation. Benny Dick has called for peace. (Yeah. Right.) Gordon Brown “understands” but causes for constraint.

Nobody is talking about the elephant in the room!

The Israelis and the Palestinians are at war only because they believe different things about absolute bloody nonsense – about gods, for crying in a bucket. About gods!

Why can not this idiocy be called for what it is?

From Cain’s invitation to Abel, “Let’s go out in the fields”, through Srebrenica and 9/11 and Bali and Gujarat, to Turkey and Beslan and Hai al-Amaal, and from the Islamboeli in Ossetia and the Djemaah Islamijah in Pantai Jimbaran to Jos and Gaza to breaking news on CNN, IT’S RELIGION STUPID!

It’s time for rational people to say “ENOUGH!”

There’s a proboscidean in the room. A five-toed pachyderm. There’s an elephant in the room! Let’s address it!

  1. Con-tester, I disagree with you, as recently there was a peace treaty and then rockets were fired on Israel. Israel retaliated as any normal country would do and it is clear to me, that they are defending themselves.

  2. Then, Hans Matthysen, you understand wrong. It’s hardly one side always being the aggressor and the other always being the defender. They’re both equally spurred on by the same basic delusion of divine right. Have you failed to notice how western sentiments – as bought and paid for by US interests – over the most recent fracas have miraculously and suddenly turned against the “always innocent” Israelis?

  3. Con-tester, as I understand it, the one side is attacking the other side, constantly and the other side is defending themselves, constantly.

  4. They are fighting over alleged “Divine Right” to territory which each side believes it has. It could just as well be over a piece of the Moon and still they’d slaughter one another.

  5. Are they fighting over religion or over territory?

    Because that would be tantamount to an admission of error and, as we all know, religious doctrine is, by its authoritarian revealed nature, inerrant. But, once again, it’s not my religion…
