Excite News - Palestinian Attacks Go on Despite Truce

The vision of the false prophet Mahatma Gandhi continues to live and vex the world. "Exude peace and goodwill and the bad guys will repent and go away. If they are mad at you, it's your fault. Love conquers all."

Governments die by that creed. Better the words of Paul, a true apostle of the true prophet, Jesus Christ: "For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. [Rom. 13:2,4]

And Peter, another apostle of the Lord Jesus: "Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well." [1Peter 2:13,14]

Governments die when they fail to perform the first duty of government: protect the good guys from the bad guys, and that means you have to kill some people. They won't get good no matter how sweetly you smile.
