Things You Don't See In Israel and America

My friends Peter and Rita, who live in Israel, have seen their daughter serve her mandatory military service and worry as their son faces his military time durng this very tense time in Israel's history. The future's impossible to read, but they know their son, raised in a Christian home with deep Messianic roots, never, never, never would have done this:
The boy with the knife looks barely 12. In a high-pitched voice, he denounces the bound, blindfolded man before him as an American spy. Then he hacks off the captive's head to cries of "God is great!" and hoists it in triumph by the hair.

A video circulating in Pakistan records the grisly death of Ghulam Nabi, a Pakistani militant accused of betraying a top Taliban official who was killed in a December airstrike in Afghanistan. ...

The footage shows Nabi making what is described as a confession, being blindfolded with a checkered scarf.

"He is an American spy. Those who do this kind of thing will get this kind of fate," says his baby-faced executioner, who is not identified.

A continuous 2 1/2-minute shot then shows the victim lying on his side on a patch of rubble-strewn ground. A man holds Nabi by his beard while the boy, wearing a camouflage military jacket and oversized white sneakers, cuts into the throat. Other men and boys call out "Allahu akbar!" — "God is great!" — as blood spurts from the wound.

The film, overlain with jihadi songs, then shows the boy hacking and slashing at the man's neck until the head is severed. (AP)

Unthinkable, isn't it, that Islam glorifies the teaching of jihad, which results in the total moral corruption of the soul of a 12 year old who should still be an innocent? Child abuse, Islam style.

While the Islamists glorify the boy, we in the U.S. are appalled by the heartless cruielty of a different abuse: Alec Baldwin's verbal lashing of his young daughter. It should cost him his career (will it?), because in America, we worry about the effects his harsh and hateful words will have on a young heart.

How differently the Judeo-Christian and the Islamist worlds treat harsh and hateful words said to a child!
