    A reply to Bibi and his faulty logic, The fact that there was wrong doing in the past and even in the present is no legitimization for one's own conduct. Sure the Greeks and the Trojans, the Romans and the Crusaders, Hitler and Stalin, ben-Gurion and Begin, Bush, and Bin Laden committed atrocities and crimes against humanity BUT that is no argument or legitimization for the chosen people, who are gods favorites and suppose to be the most civilized people, to do exact the same. It is faulty to argue that if they did it (meaning Ceaser, Hitler, Stalin, Bush and bin Laden) so it is also ok we do it. That argument holds no water. It is the same as if I was caught murdering someone argue that my cousin Vini and my friend Joe also did it and got away with it. Come on dozens of people are murdered in NY City daily and get away with it. Why should I be ashamed of it if I do the same? Go get them first and then come and talk to me.
