I understood it perfectly. Hamas shelled Israel, breaking up peace negotiations. U wanted, [b]at that point,[/b] Obama to step in and call a cease fire. How do you call a cease fire when only one side is firing shots? S...

So you think he should have called a ceasefire, before allowing Israel a chance to retaliate? Brilliant.
That would be like a guy getting sucker punched, and before he gets a chance to throw a punch back, someone stepping in saying, 'ok you two stop fighting.'

History is indeed insightful and replays itself. First Century Christians had a very difficult life. Few were wealthy, most suffered at the hands of the Romans. But the Gospel and Christian Greek scriptures was all about love, joy, peace, and happiness. They were happy, not the twisted version of 'C...

I think it all balances out. Issues are being played out, namely, whether man can govern themselves, who has the best interests in store for us, and what each is will decide as far as God is concerned.
This dilemma of watching people suffer is not uncommon, but consider this: those people sufferi...
