WHY THE GENERALLY ACCEPTED POSITION (GAP) ON ISRAEL IS INSANE | 2002-05-18
In some cases, moderation is insane. One of these cases is Israel.
You see, the GAP on Israel says that the Arabs are the only religious fanatics. The rest of us are moderates.
But you cannot say that God Almighty has taken a homeland away from one religious group and God Almighty has given that homeland to another religious group unless you are a religious fanatic. But if neither religious group involved is YOUR religious group, you are not only a religious nutcase; you are a UNIQUE religious nutcase in a world history that is crammed full of religious fanatics.
To support Israel, self-styled "Christians" have to insist that God Almighty took their homeland away from Moslems because of their religion and God Almighty gave that country to Jews. That is not only religious fanaticism, but it is a fanaticism so extreme that it is unique in history.
And these so-called "Christians" insist that theirs is a MODERATE position!
The GAP says that religious fanaticism is moderation. You can say that ten thousand times - and they have said it ten thousand times - but it is still absurd.
