Letter to Editor 5 Towns Jewish Times: Of Emperors and Pirates, nothing more!

December 17, 2008. 10:25:40 PM

In reference to the article 'The Appropriate Response To Islamic Terror' by Lawrence Kulak, dated 11/12/2008, appearing in your newspaper, its bold author had gallantly concluded without fear or favor:

Muslims believe in the literal interpretation of the Biblical doctrine of an eye for an eye, and they do not have respect for anything perceived as a lesser standard of justice. They killed our innocents, and unless we kill theirs, they will go on killing ours. The Torah, however, preaches a doctrine which, if implemented by the West, could finally put an end to all Islamic terror: If somebody is coming to kill you, rise up and kill him first.” (5tjt.com, archived for Jewish posterity at http://tinyurl.com/4cgcvk )

Project Humanbeingsfirst responds:

The wonderful thing about the Great Holy Book Torah is that all can follow it. It is bizarre that “Muhammad's Sword” ( http://zope.gush-shalom.org/home/en/channels/avnery/1159094813/ ) had never heard of this before. Thank you for informing us.

Please be advised of the following statement of principle from Project Humanbeingsfirst's website:

Please be advised that Project HumanbeingsfirstTM fully cooperates with all law enforcement and other governmental agencies worldwide in rooting out Terrorism in all its nuanced shades and stripes in order to end its Neanderthal reign of terror upon all who are human beings first. Project Humanbeingsfirst does not distinguish between terrorists clad in turbans and those wearing suits, nor between the predatory rampages of the pirates vs. the emperors, albeit each is apportioned the measure of crime and guilt commensurate to their respective station of power and impact on their victims.”
