Life or Death?


It is imperative that radical Islam be stopped, according to Somali-born victim and activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She goes on to say that people through out the world must understand what is happening, especially in relation to the Israeli/Hamas conflict. This war is between a democratic, free, independent country that chooses ” life ” and a radical terrorist organization that chooses “death.” Israel believes in life before death, while Hamas believes in death, where life is transitional and something wonderful happens after you die. Is it any wonder that jihadists sacrifice/kill their children, wives, mothers and civilians?

So the question of the day: Will America, Europe, and the rest of the world choose “life “or “death? Israel or Hamas?
