Does the military action the U.S. is contemplating against Iraq meet the standards of a just war?

It is true. You cannot fight violence with violence. Violence begets violence. It cannot beget peace. And yes, you are just as guilty...

Never mind Jesus. This quote is redundant because it CANNOT compare with the war of Iraq. He did not turn the other cheek, because there was no one to hit him. Yes, He had righteous anger and yes I understand the necessity of doing waht He did. BUT HE DID NOT KILL ANYBODY ANYTIME OR ANYWHERE! Now do you understand? He was angry because the House of His Father was being used for other purposes than for worship. But he did not hurt anybody or kill anybody. Now, do you understand? The moneyschangers are not guilty of violence also. They were guilty of profanity, irreverence (which is a direct command from God in the Tanach), stealing (which is a direct command from God in the Tanach), etc, etc, etc.

Please do not misconstrue Scripture if you do not understand the circumstances. Please do not quote Scripture when you can’t be sure this is God’s will. Are you sure it is God’s will and not Bush’s? IF GOD IS WITH US, WHO CAN BE AGAINST? And would’nt it be just traumatic if God was using this for chastising us///as promised?

Blessings,
Shoshana
