    OK, so my little prayer contest will still work. Whoever's guy comes back and brings unification and peace wins.


    But, I'm not so sure I'd want to live in a unified Islamic theocracy anyway.

    Well.... no. The last man standing wins.

    probably not. One of the things I don't understand about the modern left is their willingness to functionally ally themselves with people who so blatantly reject all of their values.

    OK, then, it looks like a war either way. I suppose having only one last man standing is the way to peace. It would seem that a Second Coming or a "peaceful" 12th. Imam could do better than just killing everyone off to bring about peace.

    As for "liberals" how many actually do want to ally themselves with radical Islam? It would seem to me a totally opposite philosophy.

    All the ones who value opposing conservatism here at home more. Feel free to wander into any of the debates over Gaza, and see who is defending Hamas. By and large, it's not those on the Right. ISIL was called Iraq's "minutemen" by Michael Moore, not Rush Limbaugh.

    Michael Moore and Rush Limbaugh are a couple of idiots.

    I wonder how many liberals actually ditto everything he says as opposed to the conservatives who ditto all of the nonsense that comes from Limbaugh?

    Condemning Israel's killing of civilians does not equal supporting Hamas.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Ah yes, the idiotic rhetoric of "If you don't follow us, you follow the enemy". did you ever think that liberals can reject YOUR ideology AND radical Islam ideology at the same time? Oh wait, that's a complex thought and maybe asking to much.

    that's the problem with your thinking, liberals thinking and Islam's thinking. You can't stand that there are people that oppose you all.

    Again, you think just in black and white terms. Here's a thought. People can actually be against BOTH Israel's draconian actions as well as Hamas's terrorists actions AT THE SAME TIME. You have the mentality of either you are for Hamas or for Israel. Well hate to break it to you but BOTH can be wrong at the same time.

    Oh Gog Magog...you know nothing.


    "....George W Bush attempted to sell the invasion of Iraq to Jacques Chirac using biblical prophecy.

    In the winter of 2003, when George Bush and Tony Blair were frantically gathering support for their planned invasion, Professor Thomas Römer, an Old Testament expert at the university of Lausanne, was rung up by the Protestant Federation of France. They asked him to supply them with a summary of the legends surrounding Gog and Magog and as the conversation progressed, he realised that this had originally come, from the highest reaches of the French government.

    President Jacques Chirac wanted to know what the hell President Bush had been on about in their last conversation. Bush had then said that when he looked at the Middle East, he saw "Gog and Magog at work" and the biblical prophecies unfolding. But who the hell were Gog and Magog? Neither Chirac nor his office had any idea. But they knew Bush was an evangelical Christian, so they asked the French Federation of Protestants, who in turn asked Professor Römer.

    He explained that Gog and Magog were, to use theological jargon, crazy talk. They appear twice in the Old Testament, once as a name, and once in a truly strange prophecy in the book of Ezekiel:...."
