    Israeli warplanes are continuing to pound targets in Gaza, as Hamas militants fire rockets deep into Israeli territory. The violence was sparked by the abduction and murder of three Israelis in Gaza last month, and the apparent revenge killing of a Palestinian teenager. Henry Ridgwell reports for VOA that the volatile situation across the Middle East region is serving to further complicate the long-standing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

    When the UN and the world declare all religions as 'man-made' and a 'bunch of drama stories', then this kind of thing will always continue in humanity's existence. If you think this is an atheist statement, you would be far from the truth I am about to expose all of you to:

    God created man (male/female), not Jew, not Arab, not European, not African,....MAN!

    God created the Earth, all land is sacred, no inch of the earth is more sacred than any other.

    God doesn't need worship, that's pointless. God does need us (man) to take care of each other and take care of this global abode He made for us. That's His worship. That's how He wants us to worship Him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Man (men, not women) invented religion, all religions. What religion did Adam and Eve follow? What religion did Noah follow? And yes, the aliens broght the kangaroos to earth after the flood, therefore the flood story is plausible? See, just stories, that's all. Stories that justify humanity's ability to not think clearly when determining what is evil and what isn't. What is good and what isn't.

    If you believe the Old Testament stuff, explain this: not one Commandment deals with children. Not one commandment deals with women. Not one commandment deals with care of the earth.
