the truth about Israel and Lebanon

(in response to an insane Digg)

The truth is that the public consciousness is unfortunately all too familiar with Muslim suicide bombers.  The truth is that this is not a tactic of Jews.

The truth of the numbers:
* Muslim extremists kill infadels and blasphemers.  (everyone not-muslim is a target)
* Jewish extremists kill blasphemers. (everyone who claims to be God is a target)

The truth of the scale of tactics:
* Muslims extremists throw themselves into innocent public gatherings and blow themselves up to kill sinners.
* Jewish extremists throw stones to kill sinners.

The truth of the sanity:
* Muslim extremists go out into the world to slaughter all who oppose Islam. (claim: _defending_ their omnipotent creator)
* Jewish extremists lob missiles at people who first attack them.  Jewish extremists have been known to destroy nuclear weapons facilities in countries run by Muslim extremists. (claim: self defense)

The truth of the map:

with a 29528_1 to the left of the copyright symbol on the back cover,
you have a lower one. If there’s no text to the left of the the
copyright symbol, you’ve got the 30% off!
