It appears that your intention is to make this a political thread after all, Rabbi Zol. That's too bad, since it's in the music section.

However, the suicide bomber who is intent on killing does not ask the question "What side are you on?" before detonating his explosives. One can not equate the destruction of houses with the taking of lives.

This is true. The killing by suicide bombers is certainly less grave than bulldozing houses. Unless, of course, those houses contain human beings in them when they get bulldozed, as happened when Ariel Sharon, now the prime minister of Israel, ordered the massacre of 70 or more people at Qibya, many of them women, children, and old men on October 14, 1953. I guess he didn't ask them which side they were on before he slaughtered them either.

Can we please move this discussion below the line, or at least remain faithful to the fact that it is in the music section of this forum?
