Honestly, my intention was not to goad you, or to put words in your mouth. Obviously, I shoudl have been more careful with my words.
But, I would still like to see a video of what you are referring to. I have not seen any so far. I can read that the Israelis are claiming that the commandos were being lynched (which is probably where my poor choice fo words came from), and the activists claiming that they had 2.5 wooden sticks between them.
Not with your contention, of course...noone is allowed their own set of facts.
But I have to disagree with your suggestion there. While it is still too early to know for sure (specially with most of the activists being held incommunicado by Israel), I would be stunned if this was anything more than a non violent direct action. This is based on 2 pieces of news
(a) The Turks are claiming that they thoroughly vetted all the ships for guns.
(b) There is one case of a woman who went there with her 1 year old baby (and stayed in her cabin during the gunfire).
And of course, all this happened in international waters!
Can you explain by what you mean by adding that "if Pakistan..." clause at the end. I did not realize that anyone had any doubts on the "if" . And while you are at it, perhaps you can also explain the "vice versa". I did not realize anyone had any "vice versa" issues either.
the next time there is an incident in India ? It has been standard operating procedure for the US to urge restraint, and for the Indians to work with the Pakistanis when such incidents have happened in the past !
you have a much better chance of getting into heaven via another faith. For instance, with Buddhism, you can get to heaven (or attain nirvana), by giving up all desires... including any desire to get into heaven.
From the tone and tenor of your diaries, it would appear not !! I fully understand that Palestinians are oppressing themselves by, for instance, building walls and checkposts in their own land and bulldozing their own homes.
