Yesterday, May 15, 2011 was Palestine's Bloody Sunday. Similar to the January 30, 1972 slaughter of 26 unarmed Irish protesters by British soldiers, yesterday Israeli soldiers shot to death at least 10 Palestinian protesters and wounded hundreds of others who were demonstrating against being displaced by the creation of the Jewish state of Israel. Turkey let the world know that they are not happy with Israel's violent behavior and mentioned not only the Palestinian bloody Sunday but also the murders Israel committed when their heavily armed military terrorists attacked the flotilla which was attempting to bring aid, food and supplies to the people of Gaza.

Every year on May 15th (on the Gregorian calendar) Palestinians protest on the anniversary of the formation of the state of Israel. (The date is different on the Hebrew calendar which still is based on the moon.) This day is known as Nakba or "day of the catastrophe." On May 15, 1948 when Israel was given United Nations recognition as an independent nation, the Israelis were busy slaughtering and sending into exodus thousands of Palestinians so Israel could steal their land and property. As Ilan Pappe wrote on page 11 of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine , "As they [the Z word] saw it, Palestine was occupied by 'strangers' and had to be repossessed. 'Strangers' here meant anyone who was not Jewish who had been living in Palestine since the Roman period."

Israel's brutality against the Palestinian people is in line with their "holy" book, the Torah. The Torah is the first five books of Moses and " -- the entirety of Judaism's founding legal and ethical religious texts." If you objectively read it, there is very little, if any, ethical material in it. It's main purpose seems to be how to make Israel the ruler of the world and how to control individual Hebrews/Jews down to what they eat and wear.

Moses himself, based on the Torah, was nothing more than a controlling bully and genocidal maniac who knew no limits to his violence, degradation and hate. For example, Numbers 31:17-18 has Moses chewing out the Israeli officers for not killing all the women of a recently vanquished enemy. He then instructs them to commit genocide by saying, " Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves." And verse 35 of the "good book" tells us the number of virgins the Israeli terrorists took was 32,000!

Israel will continue to bring violence and unrest to the Middle East and the world. This is because Israel is a Jewish state based on the Bible myth that God gave them a huge chunk of real estate and they are not going to stop their violence until they have what their "holy" book says God gave to them as a gift. The Christian con-man/televangelist Pat Robertson makes it very clear that based on the Bible God gave to the Jews lands which stretch from Egypt to Iraq. In his twisted article The Land of Israel: A Gift From God he writes, " I want to show you the extent of the land, because Solomon, the son of David who was living in 950 B.C. (that's a long time ago), this was his territory. You go all the way up north to the Euphrates River which encompasses the better part of modern-day Syria. Solomon's empire went up to the Euphrates River.

"And Tyre and Sidon and Megiddo. And they had the Via Maris which went from Damascus all the way down to Cairo. It went as far as the area down in Gaza. Just south of that there is a creek called the River of Egypt. Not the Nile. The Nile is further away. This is what they got and it came all the way down and there is Kadesh Barnea and the entrance to the Gulf of Aqaba. And it went up the Jordon River. This was the territory that God gave to Joshua."

Pat Robertson, like the vast majority of Christians, value what ancient Hebrews/Jews wrote than the gift of reason God gave to them. Even though the cornerstone of all religions is Deism, the belief in God based on reason and Nature, all "revealed" religions smother this naturally beautiful Deism with man-made dogmas, rituals and superstitions which are in direct violation of our God-given reason.

Robertson's Bible-based writings means that if the world doesn't get tough with the Jewish state and force it to remain within its 1967 borders and to disarm it of its real weapons of mass destruction, we're only now seeing the very start of bloodshed, terrorism (both state and NGO), and undreamed of sorry and suffering.
