I'm American. Probably somewhat provincial, given geographic realities of my country. But you seem to be implying that Americans lack education and/or perspective. I'm well-versed in religious narrative as a political tool. I teach on the subject, in fact. But nothing you posted does anyting to redeem the human horror breeding in Palestine like a virulent disease. A woman elected to the Hamas parliament gained the position because not one but two of her children blew up themselves...and Israeli children. Those were her bona fides. When interviewed, she said, "I had to learn to turn off motherly instinct and be proud of my sons." There's why Palestine will, and must, fail. It's inhuman.
