Advice for Netanyahu: 'Give war a chance'

A retired Army chaplain and expert on the Middle East says it is a mistake for Israel to continually agree to cease-fires whenever Palestinian terrorists launch rocket attacks against innocent Israelis.

Brigadier General Dr. James Hutchens (USA-Ret.) is a former chaplain who now serves as president of The JerUSAlem Connection. He says the same sad movie continues to play time and time again: Israel is attacked by Arab terrorists, they respond, and when they get the upper hand, they agree to a cease-fire demanded by the U.S., the U.N. and the E.U.

But Hutchens believes Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should "give war a chance."

"There are those who have been advocating all along that there is a diplomatic solution to this, and I just don't believe it," Hutchens offers. "I don't think you can deter Jihadists. I don't think you can negotiate with them. They have to be defeated. There has to be a military solution -- Then you can talk about any diplomacy afterwards."

He asserts that peace will only come from the Prince of Peace.

"We're praying for the coming of the Messiah, for the return of Jesus," the former chaplain states. "He's the only one that can bring peace. When He comes, there's all kinds of havoc that's raised, and those who oppose Him cease to oppose."

Hutchens adds that the Bible is clear: a colossal clash between Israel and the surrounding peoples is coming.

Yeah sure why don't we all just kill each other and nuke everything and just have perpetual war? It's okay, since Jesus will eventually come and save us right? Fuck you. You represent everything wrong with religion. Using your power over the minds of gullible devouts and using your deity of so called love and peace to justify genocide.

My grandfather was a Major General in the late 60's and through the 70's. While I never knew him myself, I showed my mother this quote and she believes that her father would have been absolutely disgusted by what this son of a bitch is saying.

You know there's something up with the US Army when dickheads like this guy and Jerry Boykin are generals.

As crazy as they get!

JerUSAlem. That's really good. USA stands for United States of America, right? Oh, man, that's really good.

There is no love of humanity like that coming from a nut-case christian fundamentalist.

12/8/2012 3:55:25 PM


Don't worry about his seemingly high rank, he was only a chaplain. And his doctorate was probably in theology. Still an asshole though.

12/8/2012 4:12:28 PM


The same sad movie is playing time and time again alright: Christian reads Revelations, takes it literally, applies it to his own time, thinks that the "Israel" referred to in the Bible refers to the modern state of Israel, looks at this modern state in a completely ahistorical way, and begins to actively work against a peaceful settlement, because he's determined to fulfil a prophecy which ends with the annihilation of a large part of mankind, the mass conversion of the Jews to Christianity, and himself as part of the surviving elect.
And that is why no fundamentalist Christians should be anywhere near U.S. foreign policy.

There was a two-headed creature in Dr Doolittle, the Pushmepullyou. It had no anus. I always figured it must dribble shit from both ends.

I have renamed you Dr. Pushmepullyou.

These maniacs only want Israel to exist because it's required for their deranged death cult.

It reminds me of a quote by Al Franken:

"Republicans support Israel because it plays a key role in the second coming and the Apocalypse. Which would, of course, end in the fiery death of all Jews."

Guess that's why they call themselves "Pro-Israel" instead of "Pro-Jew".

Glad to see he's retired.

12/8/2012 10:01:28 PM


So Jesus is the Prince if Peace and you say to be at war. And I take it you're Christian? If so you should be javing some major cognitive dissonance

12/8/2012 10:49:27 PM

...or stop bulldozing innocent Palestinians to continue expanding your illegal settlements. They're not all affiliated with Hamas, you know.

12/8/2012 11:53:08 PM


Another fundie who only cares about Israel because he believes that it is necessary for his preeeeeciiiousss [/Gollum] Rupture...

As for their claims of self-defense:

I have precious little in the way of sympathy for the Hamas extremists, but I have far less still for the overarmed Zionist bullies who have been bombing and starving the Palestinians, breaking international treaties and sabotaging every attempt at peace ever since they stole the Palestinians' land on the rather flimsy pretext that their ancestors used to own it two millenia ago. I have no problem with Jews as a group, I'm aware that not all Israeli are assholes, I can even sympathise with the situation of Israeli who were born in Israel after it was created and thus have no other country, but fuck do I hate these Zionist assholes! The lesson people are supposed to take from the Holocaust is not "how to pull it ourselves while pulling a Karma Houdini"!


Abraham should have had fewer sons.

Don't you mean that Yahweh should have tied Abe's tubes? (instead of making Sarah fertile)

Just imagine, without a fertile Abraham, no Judaism, and thus no Xianism and no Islam... It could all have been avoided...

Does the phrase "pouring gasoline on a fire" mean anything to you?

12/9/2012 4:45:08 AM


Joy. Another person who actually wants the Apocalypse.

12/9/2012 10:34:54 AM



Let's hope the "Karma Houdini" part is an illusion. I'm sure, in the future, things will change. We don't know when or how. But every wicked political regime/system falls sometime.

12/10/2012 5:17:13 AM


The more I hear from the Evangalist wing the more I see a strong desire for a different type of Holocaust, the wholesale slaughter of Jews from full on war.

No peace talks, no treaty enforcements and no comprimise just their precious Armeggedon fulfilled. While the flock congregates around the big screen satellite feeds with fevered anticipation of havoc Sunday Sunday SUNDAY!

"Advice for Netanyahu: 'Give war a chance'"

"He asserts that peace will only come from the Prince of Peace"

'Only Nixon could go to China'. But at least Jimmy Carter was the go-between & ultimate mastermind behind the Israel-Egypt peace treaty.

Jordan has diplomatic relations with Israel:


'Jordanian King Abdullah views Israel as a vital regional ally in the Middle East'

As does Azerbaijan:


'Azerbaijan is one of the few majority Muslim countries besides Turkey, Egypt, Jordan and the former Soviet Central Asian republics to develop bilateral strategic and economic relations with Israel'

And Azerbaijan is the only other Islamic country that - along with Iran - has a mainly Shia Muslim population.



'Democratic Party of Libya figure Ahmad Shabani said on 23 August that the Libyan opposition wanted the support of the international community, including Israel, despite the state's current lack of diplomatic relations with Libya. When asked if a democratically elected Libyan government would recognise Israel, Shabani responded, "The question is whether Israel will recognize us." He said his party supports a two-state solution for Israel and Palestine'

Syria...? The way things are going, re. this 'ere 'Arab Spring', it's not looking too good for you War... er, I mean Peace-loving fundies, eh?!

Jimmy Carter. Boutros-Boutros Ghali. Ban-Ki Moon. Hillary Clinton. Now, if memory serves me right, re. my RE classes at school, but didn't your 'Prince of Peace' himself say - as part of his Beatitudes, on his Sermon on the Mount:

Matthew 5:9: 'Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.'

Also a certain little piece of Scripture called Isaiah 2:4. I also remember - not so many decades ago - in the US that, among you right-wing fundies, whenever the words 'Jew/Jewish/Israel' cropped up in conversations, invariably said fundies would reply with 'Christ-killers!'. Yep, there's those granite-solid, unmoving (because 'Conservative' is defined in the Oxford English Dictionary as 'Averse to Change') Christian Principles, yessiree! [/hyper-sarcasm]

Shoot first, ask questions later?

This is real life, not a fucking movie. You are as much a Doctor like Dr. Seuss was a doctor.

12/10/2012 10:58:57 AM


Can you honestly think of a worse time to evangelize?

12/10/2012 11:37:50 AM


... did this guy just say that jews are praying for the return of Jesus?

"He's the only one that can bring peace. When He comes, there's all kinds of havoc that's raised,..."
