    It really is simple. Killing another is wrong. It makes no difference what your religious preference is or if you have no religion at all.... Murdering people and killing their means of food or support is wrong.

    Did a religious organizational leader call for the the farmers, women, children, cattle and everyday civilians in Iraq to be slaughtered?

    If so provide the information. Put in the links.

    Each and every religions has its religious fanaticals. This guy being representative of the Jews and their beliefs is on par with The Phelps folks.

    In my religion killing is NOT wrong, thus why I support the death penalty, abortion, etc.. Killing is only wrong if there is no reason for it. "Senseless" is the only true sin.

    Keep putting them in here. "Thou shalt not kill" was what God told His people. If they are calling for the murder of innocent people then they are not representing God's word are they?

    Who is "they?" One man said this, he doesn't represent all jews. Just like the person(s) who kill in the name of Christianity, they don't represent all Christians.

    The way I understand it, the literal translation is you shall not commit murder, and murder was when you killed another member of the twelve tribes of Israel, not an outsider. As evidence let me remind you that all the people living in what was to be the promised land were to be killed and their land taken, and that did not violate what God told his people.

    Perhaps they simply have the correct translation that states "Thou shalt not murder".

    Granted, Im not sure how they justify this all the same. But God has not forbidden the taking of a life. He has just limited the circumstances where we have a right to.
