This is not meant as a reflection on the people of any one nation but on the outlook of people of the whole world, I do not now or never will condone terrorism but to brutally murder and slay by wholesale dmolition bombing of an entire race because of the actions of others is sheer madness and why aren't we up in arms to stop it (pardon the pun) but is this really the answer?

 


Thou Shalt Not Kill Unless…


 


 


Jesus loves me this I know cause the bible tells me so…


I’m glad he loves me because across the line in Lebanon


he doesn’t love the children there I guess


 


Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saves…


Nope again will not save you if you live in Lebanon


 


When the roll is called up yonder, when the roll…


Don’t count on seeing any Lebanese they’ll all be fried


 


Jesus loves the little children…all the little children of the world


Hm guess they pulled Lebanon off the map (or bombed it off)


 


Take the hand of the hand of the man who calmed the waters


That is unless your hand is from the country of Lebanon


 


There’s a family bible on the table, it’s pages…


Not telling the world to look the other way while men, women and children are being genocided  to death in the name of killing terrorists, isn’t it time the world spoke up and called for an end to this barbaric way of warfare.

I have to disagree. I believe we ALL have a right to defend ourselves, bit I do not get into political arguements here. I do however appreciate your passion!

I'm glad you decided to post it, felix

I was beginning to get tired of carrying the load alone for calling for a ceasefire

and saving the civilians in Lebanon.

However, I don't see their names on your poem yet

I like Michael's interpretation of the miracle

I talked about that in my poem We who are dying salute you.

May our voice be finally heard

I also salute Senaor Hagel for crying out "Stop this madness"

Love and peace

Very brave write, felix
Jesus turned the water into wine in Qana
and Israel turned it into blood of the innocent
But isn't wine the blood of Christ
Then Jesus turned water into blood
Perhaps he did it in Qana to warn us that blood of the innocent will be spilled there
Great work
God bless - Mich

How much would you pay to have your child love you of her own free will? If God had made cookie-cutter robots we'd all love Him. But since He allows us to choose Him of our own free will, sin and war reign on earth. We mortals cannot fathom the depth of God's love. But we can see with our own eyes what it has cost. As Panda wrote, evil men use Lebanese children as human shields. The evil on earth exists because God gives us free choice. That's how important it is to the Creator's heart that we accept and follow Him of our own volition. If this were not true, Christ would not have had to die for mankind's sins. He loves you, Fee. Like it or not. :)

These are only the beginnings of sorrows...

Like A woman who travails in labour, desperate to give birth, it gets worse before it gets better, and the rejoicing comes.

" The Victor is sure,
The Victory secure
but till judgment
we all must endure"

I respect and appreciate your feelings Fee.
Hugs

Bold. Eye-opening. Thought provoking. Controversial. Maybe. But needed to be said...heartbreaking how we judge others. Excellent message in this one! Well done, Fee!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

My Dear Friend Felix,

Your heart shines brightly in this piece ... yes, I can see it now, even before the sun has set!

Thank You, my brother, for sharing these words of compassion. Thoughts and words are powerful and we can use them to either build up or destroy. I am eternally grateful whenever I discover souls like you who are in favour of Life.

Love & Light,
Joseph

Fee - You know how I feel on innocent suffering and that is happening here on both sides - however, the terrorists are hiding behind walls of human flesh knowing exactly the evil game they are playing - I truly believe this world has gone mad. What a dark planet we live on. Panda :)

Yes indeed Felix!! Deep karmically inspired words Felix! You write like the brave man you are and God Bless you for posting it! Remember true evil lies in the silence of the good. Your words cry of the insanity of the situation: "he doesn’t love the children there I guess" ... It shows there is no God involved... simply fear-driven madness...
Sanskrit meaning of 'War' is 'More cows' = more land. It's not about religion at all. 'Holy' land... couldn't have been made any more unholy.
Love the power of your compassion...

I am for ending the wars too, but that will never happen. I think that God is taking the children to live with him to keep them from suffering here on earth. There will be war until the end of time and we can probably never get rid of all the terrorist in the world. So the next time you feel so sad about the children, just picture them in heaven singing in heaven's choir.

right on, Felix ... this happens to all sides in war ... such a waste of life ...
Reviewed by Susan de Vegter 7/31/2006
The innocent make the numbers go up in all wars. Killing and maiming innocent children and families serves absolutely no purpose. For every number that increses so too...are the sins of the "humans"... responsible. This is murder.
I'm with you Fee.
Love,peace and harmony.

PS I deliberated whether I should post this for I know there will be many who will condem the words I say and the message I am sending out but I do believe there will be just as many who agree with me and maybe our voices will be heard for a return to sanity.
