Sadly, such an attitute is the new paradigm, assassinate the people who will stand up for decent moral judgement and humanity.
Why is there only a small handful of us who are willing to stand up for what is right?
Where are the Christians? They do not have much to say. No guesses why not.
The fact is, the small handful of people who have stood up and voiced opinion against the carpet bombing of innocents, seems to me - to be the God Damned ATHIESTS.
I am a Christian and I sent out an email this very morning condemning the actions of the Israeli government concerning their killing of innocent women and children civilians in Gaza.
I realize many lazy self described "Christians" seem to be missing in action in calling this immorality what it is.
I am not one of them.
Here is the email I sent off this morning to many people I know:

Here is a reply from one of the people:
I love you Dale, but I couldn't disagree with you more.
It's bulls**t to think that Israel should allow Hamas to lob rockets
indiscriminately into their country without repercussions. What other
country on earth would allow that to happen without any retribution?
Hamas, and their counterparts, need to be decimated. The very fact that
they hide behind innocent people by congregating and storing weapons in
their schools, hospitals, mosques and homes to do their dastardly deeds
only speaks to their cowardice, not Israel's (or the US's for supporting
them). The blood of those civilians who are dying is on their heads.
I don't believe any Israeli (official or otherwise prominent) has ever
said that Palestine should be "driven into the sea" or has waged war
specifically against one people-group as these terror organizations
have. Israel pulled out of Gaza long ago and left the Palestinians to
their own rule and this is what has resulted. It was Hamas who violated
the "peace" agreement, not Israel. It's a shame that they have created
a culture where strapping bombs to your children and sending them into
crowded marketplaces to kill as many "innocent women and children" as
possible is overlooked by the world community, but when a nation says,
"enough is enough," they are decried as violent and unreasonable.
Jesus did say love your neighbor. He also said, "Do not suppose that I
have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace,
but a sword." (Matthew 10:34) The Bible says there is a time for war
and a time for peace - I think when one culture is hell-bent on
annihilating another and it is so ingrained in their mindset that reason
and negotiation are no longer options, that it is a time for war.
I, for one, hope Israel wipes them off the map.
How do I reply to this reply...
