Unholy war in the Holy Land

Unholy war in the Holy Land Though the Israeli and Arab conflict seems nearly always on the front pages of the papers, here is a minor religious struggle going on in area, an area where claim, counter claim, strife, bitterness and emotional toil seem the order of the day. This just odd enough to stand as symbolic of the area and its uniqueness.

I always wondered which god condoned killing people in his name. God should be taken out of the equation, it is not a holy war, there is nothing holy about it.

Curing somebody by laying hands on them - Holy

Firing a rocket into a crowd of civilians - Unholy

Dangerous to post links to an Israeli paper late in the day. It's already Wednesday there, and the content rolled.
