Is it the End of the World?

Not All Enemies Are Enemies

In the War on Terror, and for those of us who “side” with the good guys, it’s important to remember that there are good people in the Arab world.

An AP story that appeared in USA Today brought this truth to light. As the barbaric police state of Bashar Assad’s Syria cracks down/murders its own citizens who protest the regime, there is light and hope.

In a recent bloodbath in the southern city of Daraa, members of Syria’s 5th Division first refused to fire on civilians and then protected them from fire from other units. This is highly significant and cause for celebration.

In a world gone mad, it’s nice to see that people in the world’s hotspots can and do practice humanitarian gestures.

Let’s pray for the people of Syria, in particular the citizens of Daraa, and specifically for those men in the 5th Division.

    Rebels Without a Cause
    Those who dismiss the late James Dean as merely a brooding, self-absorbed young actor miss the point, I think. Dean, who evidently suffered both from the early loss of his mother and from abuse at the hands of a trusted clergyman, really was ...

    The King of Zionism
