He is either very brave ,or very stupid.
2. Hezbollah are just politicians with a peace making role
zionist forever   (12.09.12)
" It is important to remember that Hezbollah has grown into a political organisation with members in the Lebanese legislature and hence in a unique position to advance peace in the region " The man makes Hezbollah sound like a bunch or respected politicians who are going to be involved in peacemaking in the region. He fails to mention the fact that Hezbollah has a military wing as well as a political one same way Hamas does and they have no interest in peace making, Nasrallah just gave a speech saying they have thousands of rockets that can hit all of Israel and how they will destroy Tel Aviv in the event of another war. In 2006 Koffi Annan former Secretary General to the UN who in his days at the UN was not famed for his support for Israel placed the blame firmly at Hezbollah's door and said they provoked the war. Why does Terry Waite look at the bigger picture before saying Hezbollh have changed and now they are just politicians and have a role to play in the peace making?

However understand these people have deep aversion to anyone that don't think as they do...they deal in a culture of death ...not life and peace

Sadly Alzheimer and delusion has set in after many a beating to the skull, next to the now famous radiator. Waite you are welcome to go back to get more beatings in Lebanon next to your radiator if that means that you will get your sanity and Hizbolah deserve eachother. Waite is a true turn the other buttcheek Christian!

Ahava   (12.09.12)

11. Waite
Get Real ,   UK   (12.10.12)
For all these things you desire from Hezbollah Mr Waite, you will indeed have a very very long wait. Thought your past experience would have wisened you up somewhat.
12. As if Hezbollah
Get Real ,   UK   (12.10.12)
gives a whatsit about the Syrian Christians,and they've done wonders for those in the Lebanon.As for advancing peace in the region,he's got to be joking;has he never wondered why the West labels them a terrorist organisation? Misguided at that.
13. Number 7. Sharia law in UK/
Joseph ,   London UK   (12.10.12)
Here in the UK we have an arbitration act that allows two parties to enter into binding arbitration that can then be enforeced by the civil courts. This mans two Jews can allow the beth Din to arbitrate and then the civil law can enforce the ruling. If, however, either side says the ruling contradicts UK law there can be a judicial review by a High Court judge. The Archbishop compared the Beth Din [by name] to sharia arbitration that must comply with UK law. He did not suggest amputations, stoning and beheading!!!
