"the inhabitants of the land of Canaan which we let remain shall be PRICKS IN YOUR EYES , AND THORNS IN YOUR SIDES , AND SHALL VEX YOU IN THE LAND WHERE YOU DWELL" Bill, may I inquire which chapter did you quote please? Next time someone will be arguing the Judaic sacred texts are somewhat more democratic than Bill of Rights and thereby stands apart all the other religious sets of prescriptions, I will know which line in the text to refer him/her to. "THIS ISSUE IS MISSING FROM DEBATE" I'd say it is the one who is missing from debate who has "God-told-me-so" argument to any question. The worst, let's stick all of us to the last sentence of your post: "He will save us and fulfill our destiny". Let's not produce our destiny instead of him and in his name. For too long humanity designed its G-d as some poor victim of multiple identity.
