Great Moments in Religion-Crushing Recalled

There was this disturbing quote on Israellycool:

"According to a senior IDF source, crushing Hizbullah is not feasible sinceĀ 'it is impossible to crush a popular, religious movement.'"

Before jumping to that conclusion, let's think about that. Off the top of my head:

  • Cult of Baal (and Molech, Asherah, etc.) in ancient Israel? Crushed!
  • Mayanism? Incan worship? Aztecs? Crushed!
  • Emperor worship in Imperial Japan? Crushed!
  • And, everybody's favorite, Branch Davidianism? Not just crushed, but Janet Renoed!!!

Maybe this general should read a MacArthur biography or something. If he doesn't cowboy up in a hurry, we should call Chuck Norris on him.
