I Have Some Questions

"Israel is doing the Lord's work. It is defending its homeland and very existence but are also America's homeland as our frontline democratic ally in the Middle East

[snip]

When the dust clears the world will applaud Israel for its courage. Sensible freedom-loving people everywhere will realize Israel's furious response in the face of senseless terrorist attacks will have made the world a better place.

In fact, we are all Israelis now."

That's from Lawrence Kudlow who was a member of the Bush-Cheney Transition Advisory Committee and does right-wing economic and political commentary. My American readers might know him better as the host of the CNBC show "Kudlow & Company." He also runs his own outfit contact info here.

Anyway my question is this, "Israel is doing the Lord's work.":
Child shrapnel mother's womb


I don't know of any Lord for whom a foetus in the womb killed by shrapnel is "the Lord's work." Which Lord are you talking about Lawrence?

And no Lawrence we're not "all Israelis now" the majority of us are citizens of countries whose soldiers don't shoot pregnant women, in fact Lawrence at present, to the best of my knowledge and belief, the only two countries whose soldiers are shooting children in their mother's womb are your country - the USA, and Israel. That leaves most of the world Lawrence whose soldiers don't do that Lawrence, you know civilised countries. Countries that don't deliberately habitually target civilians. Interesting concept isn't it? Not shooting kids in their mother's wombs, must be part of that new-fangled "hearts and minds" stuff.

Tell me Lawrence would you describe yourself (and the Israelis) as "pro-life"? Or do Arab kids not count as "life"?
