TO STOP TERRORISM, START BY GETTING RELIGION OUT OF POLITICS | 2004-07-17

There is a lot of talk about how religion should not rule in political matters. But not one of the 535 members of congress ever objects to the fact that our entire Middle mentions that our entire Middle East policy is based on the idea that God gave the homeland of Arab Palestinians to the Jews.

There are lots of guns behind the idea that Israel has the right to exist. But underneath that is the simple fact that this is an evil, theocratic religious idea that the United States is forcing on the Middle East. They will never accept Israel because its existence is wrong.

We are forcing our religion on the Moslem world. All the shrieks that they are forcing their religion on others can't hide that.
