Talking Mideast peace?

| Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012, 9:00 p.m.

The Bible calls the Jews “God's chosen people.”

God gave the land of Canaan (now Israel) to the 12 tribes of Israel. It was given to the Jews through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Read Joshua 1:1-5 and Deuteronomy 31: 7-8. God also says in Genesis 12:3 to the Jews: “I will bless those who bless you and whoever curses you, I will curse.”

For the last seven years, Hamas has been sending rockets into Israel. The media haven't said much about it, but now that Israel's fighting back, the media are reporting it — usually making Israel the “bad guy.”

Now we see Hillary Clinton rushing to the Middle East to talk peace. Where was she seven years ago?

When President Obama first got elected, do you know he promised the Palestinians Jerusalem? What would he think if some other country promised to give our enemies Washington, D.C.?

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
