Is it wrong of me to say, wahoo? Good for them...
I was hoping this "backlash" kind of deal WOULDN`T happen.
That makes three of us.
Understood---yet are they not protecting themselves much like the United States is defending itself against enemies that would kill us?
Yes it would be wrong of you, obviously.
One is always entitled to self-defence;
one is never entitled to slaughtering
innocent people as an act of vengance
against other, guilty people.
From a Christian perspective, mobs burning down mosques and killing innocents is never morally justified, regardless of what those mosque-goers might have done to you. That's significantly different from the US fighting against terrorism in general.
for a tooth.(Exodus 21:22-27) I certainly don't believe Jesus would recommend turning the other cheek when murder is involved.(You have heard that it was said, "An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth". But I say to you, do not resist an evildoer. If anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. Matthew 5:38-39,) However, this is no face striking this is murder. Innocents were obviously killed on both sides... Nigeria may be headed for civil war. Bad news for the US as we import a hell of alot of oil from them.
We are SO addicted to oil.
Hope it doesn`t become our "undoing". :usa:
