48. I respectfully suggest that you are missing the forrest for your intense concentration on a single

The issue is 40+ of years of living lives as half-humans. Doesn't take a big match to light the fire.

Some may be most moved by what they see as desecration. I think Israel's unconscionable behavior toward human beings is reason enough.

The fact is, you know full well why people are so angry. But instead you choose to imply that these Palestinians are some kind of weirdo religious fanatics that ol' Obie just can't comprehend.

Interesting strategy.
