You really do not have any idea what is going on with the Israel/Hamas conflict. That being the case, why do you feel the need to make any comment about it?

You really do not have any idea what is going on with the Israel/Hamas conflict. That being the case, why do you feel the need to make any comment about it? Surely, someone with your obvious intelligence. would, without bias, research the topic first before making any comment. Anyway, it is what it is. For the record, Hamas are notorious for the following: (a) They are a terrorist group, Thus by definition cannot be trusted to report the truth, regardless of topic. (b) Most of the western media, totally rely on Hamas for news of the conflict. (c) Israel has been attacked by a variety of Arab entities since the foundation of modern Israel in 1948. The current conflict is what has 'broken the camel's back' for Israel. Thus their mantra, understandably so, [I repeat here, watch the terrorists own video footage regarding the atrocities inflicted on innocent Israelis] 'Never Again!' (d) Current enemies of Israel have sworn to rid 'Palestine', from the river (Jordan) to the sea (Mediterranean), of all Israelis. The genocidal notion is even written into Hamas's constitution. (e) Israel is not only surrounded by those who desire its demise but the main instigator, Iran, is feverishly working towards acquiring a nuclear bomb. Who do you suppose it is meant for? (f) In 1947, Both Israel and Palestine were offered division of the area , then known as Palestine, so each could have a recognised state of their own. Only Israel took up the offer of the UN. Since that time, the Palestinian Arabs have declined similar concessions by Israel and other negotiating parties, on seven other occasions. Hamas is the duly elected governing body of the area known as Gaza. Israel had abdicated responsibility for the area [1965] in an effort to appease the majority of Arabs living in Gaza. Thus the Gazans had complete autonomy from Israel, and what did they do with their freedom? They built the most extensive tunnel network across the whole of Gaza in which various levels of tunnels housed thousands of rockets. drones. anti-tank missiles, land mines etc, etc, etc. It has been described as 'The Largest Terrorist Stronghold' in the world, perhaps, only rivaled by Hezbollah (Lebanon). And who paid for it, albeit, unwittingly? Why of course every taxpayer in the western-world, either directly country to Gaza (HAMAS) or through various UN agencies. BILLIONS of dollars under the guise of aid poured yearly into the Hamas coffers. Who supplied the armoury housed in the underground tunnels? Principally, Iran! What is recorded here is only a capsule picture of what Israel is up against, yet, insult is added to injury by no less a country than Ireland, which I'm sure you must be aware of. What on earth has Ireland to do with Israel is any one's guess. Or could it be, the Muslims in your country are already flexing their muscles?

@Carol H The modern day Israeli genetically speaking, is no different to his/her forefathers, and we should not overlook that there have been Jews, in what has been commonly called Palestine for 3,000 years or more. Certainly there is a larger part of the population that identifies as Jewish that would genetically reveal cross race genetic breeding. However one needs to be careful not to fall into the thinking that the Nazi's adopted, of trying to identify sub-groupings of Jews. With respect to the Jewish religion, one would expect some organic or even more demonstrable changes over the course of its history. Is that not true of our own Catholic religion? For me, I can only stress that I find it difficult to reconcile the clear and obvious anti-Semitism currently sweeping western civilisations with Our Lord's commandments to love and forgive one's neighbour no matter the perceived injury. The longevity of our church's anti-Jew mantra should cease. It's time we all lived up to what Our Blessed Lord died on the cross for. One last important point. Israel was attacked by the terrorist group Hamas, they, meaning Israel, have every right to defend it's citizens, as would any other country faced with an overt aggressive neighbour. Yet there are those who would deny Israel that right. The current scenario facing Israel, is what has been termed, 'a ring of fire' meaning that Israel is faced with attack not only by Hamas, but by Hezbollah, Iran, Houthis, and a host of minor terrorist groups. Hamas has over 120 Jewish hostages, predominantly non-combatants, women, children, and men. If you have the courage, the terrorists filmed the atrocities they inflicted on those they killed, around 270 innocent Israelis- [look up YOUTUBE] The total number of missiles launched on Israel, since the war started [Oct 7-23] has exceeded 10,000. Fortunately, Israel's defence systems have averted major catastrophes, thus far. But for how long can they hold out given that the estimated arsenal at disposal of the terrorists is over 250,000 rockets and other projectiles. Pray for Israel, if for no better reason than the Lord's covenant with Israel, has never been rescinded.

@ To whom it may concern.> Get your facts right before jumping on the anti-Jew band wagon. And I mean all those who believe it's okay to askew facts to support their continuous nonsensical anti- Jew narratives. Israel and Azerbaijan are consider to be 'friendly' countries following the latter's recognition of Israel legitimacy to exist as a state. Mutually beneficial trade agreements followed, including the sale of a limited quantity of arms from Israel to Azerbaijan. The latter lacking sufficient arms to defend itself. Significantly, Azerbaijan is a Muslim country and has been locked in a regional war with Armenia over disputed territory following the independence of both countries from the former USSR. There has been a number of cease-fires, brokered by Russia who also supplied 'peace keepers' to the conflictual zones of dispute. Resolution of the disputed area is still on going. That Armenia is perceived to be a Christian country has little to do with Israel's alliance with Azerbaijan and was not a factor at all, in the determinations of trade agreements or other matters pertaining to the normalisation of relationships between two countries. To suggest that Israel only sold arms to Azerbaijan for the sole purpose of killing Christians is at best, a distortion of historical facts, and at worst, out and out lies. As though Israel consciously had that intent to arm a Muslim country so they could kill Christians. It beggars belief, that a fellow Catholic's 'hatred' of Jews leads them to think in those terms. God only knows what Heaven makes of Catholic bigotry towards His Son's, His Mother's, His Step-Father's, ethnicity?

Life at Saint Thomas Aquinas Seminary - FSSPX USA

@Sean Johnson Yeh, you think? The Resistance movement is based solely on the tantrum of Bishop Williamson. It has no authority other than that claimed by Williamson himself. In all good charity, Williamson and all his supporters, have placed themselves outside of the legitimate Church, and are there, because of the very pernicious sin of pride.

There are a number of Protestants as well as non-believers who hate Catholics and would have us dead. I was in Ireland during the Catholic/Protestant conflict and having spent some time in Northern Ireland as well as Southern Ireland, I can personally vouch for the 'evil intent' that permeated the atmosphere of a Protestant city like Belfast. Such hatred and fear is not some aberration that afflicts just certain racial groups but rather it is a common reaction of all human beings. But we tell our selves we would not behave in such a manner, now would we? How easy it is to forget even the most recent past. Afghanistan, Vietnam, Iraq, any of those wars ring a bell?

@Jeffrey Ade> Since you asked the question, I will respond with, "I would; and proudly so!" The survival of Our Blessed Lord's country, His Fathers everlasting covenant with the same, the land of OBL, Saint joseph, Saint Peter and all the apostles, is paramount. The atrocities committed by Hamas, aided and abetted by civilian Palestinians, can only be characterized, both in intent and action, as evil. It is my contention that the majority of pro-Palestine supporters are ignorant of the history of Israel/Palestine conflict, not because the information is hard to come by, but rather, they prefer to articulate an anti Jew narrative based simply on biases, or preconceived notions of Jewish behaviour found in books long ago which were debunked by, I would suggest. deeper thinkers than you and I.

Jeffrey, You are so behind the times with your own narrative of what OBL requested of Sister Lucia. The consecration of Russia has been done. Who claims it to be so? Why, Sister Lucia herself! End of story, Jeffrey. Now if you want to dispute her emphatic Yes! to Pope John Paul 2's question to her on the subject, then you are also disputing OBL whom confirmed heavens acceptance of the second act of consecration by Pope John Paul.2. It is blaringly obvious to even a cursory student of the Fatima story, that certain self-acclaimed experts on the subject, so often needed to 'invent' narratives, bordering on conspiratorial undertones to open, unsubstantiated tales of 'foul play' by church authorities, always with the rider that such expose was good for the church and the insignificant pew-sitter. After all, the latter was in reality, the 'bread and butter' of subscriptions for 'glossy' eye-catching magazine covers, boldly claiming in headlines, the latest in depth interview with, whoever was the flavour of the month. Time to rethink your position Jeffrey, not because I say so, after all who the hell am I? But because OBL has the last word. 'FIAT'

Quite frankly, most of the comments relating to Jews and their supposedly negative impact on the USA are infantile at best or degrade the author to the level of 'good old anti-Semitism'.

Frankly, she can sell her work to ever she chooses, after all, its her work. As for her rationale, that's a different question all together. Sadly, she has swallowed the pro-Palestinian propaganda, hook, line and sinker, like so many other ill-informed people across the western-world.
