Palestinians shoot themselves in the foot yet again

Arab Mother Of Two Murders Four Israelis In Suicide Attack
"Brig.-Gen. Gadi Shamni, IDF Commander of the Gaza Formation, said today, 'The terrorists take cynical advantage of the State of Israel's humanitarian desire to help out the Arabs of Gaza and allow them to [cross the Green Line] and find work in Israel.'"

Jihad Watch has excerpts from an Associated Press article posted here, Palestinian mother kills four in suicide bombing. What's most interesting about this post are the comments that have been made there so far (as of 5:25pm EST). One individual writes in a series of comments, "Simply put... Disgusting. What kind of woman or mother would abandon her children. animals..... They are all animals." "Kill them until they beg you to stop. " "These are very dark and serious times....Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is the only true answer to this problem."

I trust that you see the irony of making such hateful and remarks and then proceeding to assert that Jesus Christ it the only true answer.

Another individual makes this comment, "Find some consolation in the fact that in a sense, we have seen this woman clean up the gene pool, if only a little, by preventing the birth of more like her." What, no compassion for the children who have lost their mother? Such attitudes are just as wrong headed as the ones that lead this woman to blow herself up and deprive her children of a mother that they will most surely need.

Four Killed in Gaza Suicide Bombing, this is the AP article mentioned by Jihad Watch.

I think it is common knowledge that the Palestinian "freedom fighters" have no interest whatsoever in peace or a Palestinian homeland. They are interested in killing anyone who stands in the way of obliterating Israel. Having said this I wonder why anyone bothers to try to include them in the peace process.

Christians shoot themselves in the foot over Palestine/Israel issue
I wonder how far along in the peace process we would be if instead of chosing sides in this matter Christians would fairly seek to right the wrongs that Israelis and Palestinians do to each other. What would happen if rather than insisting that Israel must exist no matter what or that Palestinians are being abused by Israel, Christians fervently dedicated themselves to modeling the fruit of the Holy Spirit to both Israelis and Palestinians. Just incase you forgot, "...the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law." Galatians 5:17 (NKJV)

Christians need to remember that the way we should be addressing these issues is not always the same way that others would address the problem. Sometimes the best thing for us to do is stop talking to mere men and start talking to God. Sometimes we need to stop talking all together and do something that demonstrates God's love for mankind. Doing these kinds of things is never easy. It rarely gets you any attention. Sometimes it gets you killed. But it usually has the best results.

Pray for the motherless and fatherless children of Israel and Palestine. Pray for the mothers and fathers who have buried their children. Pray for the salvation of lost people. The most powerful weapon that Christians have in this fight is prayer. It's not the only weapon though.
