    Wow the 8 Germans and all of the shoppers in the crowded market right next to where the hell fire missiles blew up were all deemed guilty of crimes and deserved a horrible death. Europe doesn't even have the death penalty does it? How do the Israeli Spin misters vet the crowd of Pakistani shoppers at the market, simply collateral damage? Oh they were probably Muslims and they were shopping that's the reason?

    He's talking about disgruntled Jews who make a living as official Oregon State gas-pumpers. This particular one also works at a gas station with a goose pond.

    Oregon state law prohibits you from pumping your own gas, it's much too dangerous...and besides, there may very well be a "terrorist" with a book of matches nearby.

    Hatred of any kind is very difficult to fix. Humans are just not a great as you might think. It's easy to teach hatred too. Just look, you can receive virgins in the afterlife if you blow yourself up with a bomb, oh and your mom will be praised by her neighbors when you kill yourself. Does that make the moms bomb makers.
    And the IDIOTS believe that crap, and blow themselves up. Once we all become Buddhist, the world will be better. They don't even kill worms when digging a trench in the dirt. Gotta pick them up gently and move them to the side. Trench digging in Tibet is a big chore because worms don't deserve to die to save a human some time.

    I agree, let's get them all, and while we are at it, lets also give encouragement to other countries to do the same in regards to Islamic militants. Let's give our blessing to Israel to go on and wipe out Hamas and Hezbollah, 2 of the worst Islamic terror organizations in the world
