Iran's theocrats have called Israel a "cancer on the face of the earth". I have another idea as to what the real cancer is.
Islamists are killing Christians and others all over the world. This is under-reported in the media. A good example of the under-reporting is the outrageous Muslim killings of 4,000 innocent Buddhist civilians in the south of Thailand over the past 10 years. The victim's did nothing to deserve this! The killings stem from extreme ignorance and personal misery that only comes from failures within their sub-culture--not unlike the Northern Sumatra Aceh community--also prone to violence and criminality. There is a mild political grievance but nothing to justify large scale murder: the 3 southern Thai states near Malaysia want to be returned to Malaysia. Malaysia doesn't want them! Thailand and ordinary Thai people are peaceful and tolerant, so there's no excuse to explain a death toll 5 times worse than our 9-11 murders (in proportion to Thailand's population). It's simply senseless murder. This passes for religion?
