Arafat on his Deathbed?

by Steve Ray on October 28, 2004

Palestinian autocrat Yasser Arafat is seriously ill.   His wife who lives in Paris is reportedly on her way to Ramallah. Doctors were called from Jordan and Egypt. It is reported that he has not regained consciousness since his collapse. Many believe he is fighting for his life. He may not make it. Israel is planning its response and its peacekeeping plan in the event of his death. (Picture: Arafat earlier this week).

I have always said there will be no real peace in the Middle East in my lifetime. I have also said that there is no possibility of an honest dialog as long as Arafat is alive. He jealously holds his dictatorial position and will broach no competition. He is blinded by hatred and willing to kill innocent people to express his rage. His death will bring about chaos as factions and radicals fight for power. His legacy is one of shame.

Only if things settle down and a man with integrity rises among the Palestinians — a man who can establish a real government with authority and justice — will talks become possible.  Not only Israel, but the rest of the world, has put the Palestinians on hold until this stubborn old man disappears from the political scene. Only then will peace talks be possible.  But I am not optimistic.

I suspect that the Palestinians will suffer years of infighting and accusing the wrong people for all their troubles. Israel is not their enemy — Muslim Palestinians are their own worse enemy and when they want the world and Israel to take them seriously they will cease terror, establish a real government with integrity and dialog, and teach their people to work with Israel instead of against Israel. But, I am not optimistic.

Arafat is a loser. He missed many chances and he has brought untold suffering upon the very people he claims to serve while he fattened his own bank account — impoverishing his people while he himself became on of the world’s richest men. I am not optimistic.

Love Animals, Love Kerry??

by Steve Ray on October 27, 2004

An animal-loving friend wrote today to tell me he was voting for Kerry. I asked him: “How can someone who loves cats, birds, and woodchucks, vote for a man who promotes this for human beings?”

Partial birth Abortion is the pulling of a baby from the womb feet-first but leaving the head in the birth canal. The “doctor“ then jams scissors through the skull and vacuums out the baby’s brains. The baby is then discarded. For more info, click HERE.

Fun and War!

October 25, 2004

My son Jesse called and said, “Dad, want to go to war?” My face went blank. “What,” I asked. He said he and his friends were going out to a large field full of weeds to have a paintball war. I had never done this before but since I am almost 50 years old and [...]

What a Great Example

October 21, 2004

I received an unsolicited e-mail accusing me of impropiety by criticizing Kerry and promoting Bush on my website. It is a great example of the hatred that is showing itself during this campaign by some liberals. Following are two e-mails this unnamed person sent. In both e-mails this person was too cowardly or ashamed to leave their [...]

Actually Janet and I voted yesterday by absentee ballot. I highly suggest this option to miss the crowds and to have [...]

Is the Mass really a Sacrifice?

October 11, 2004

In 1 Corinthians 10 Paul compares three sacrifices, that of Israel, that of the pagans and the sacrifice of Christians. He speaks of “the Table of the Lord“ which the Old Testament prophets explained as an altar of sacrifice Malachi 1:7-12). Look at the chart below and see if Paul didn’t clearly view the Eucharist as a [...]
