I find this disturbing, how about you?

This happened in Israel, the mindset over there is much different than here.

  • That is why I say stop expecting everyone to believe the same way. Do you not see how not accepting that others believing differently is a bad thing? We may not kill one another in the states BUT my GOSH....we have to stop thinking ONE way is the ONLY way to peace. Where does it start? It starts with the dogma that everyone should be the same, everyone should worship the same. It happens here too but on a different level.

  • It is extremely disturbing. It is disturbing when any sort of violent attack occurs against any woman anywhere. Would the outcome have been any different had she answered in English instead of Hebrew, who knows.

    In Africa women out gathering wood almost expect to be repeatedly raped by their own countrymen, albeit often of a different religion. As women we need to figure out how to help end the violence against all women, regardless of skin color or religious belief.

  • No more disturbing than what is happening to the Palestinians, or women of South Africa, or some of the crap that happens in our own backyard.... hmmm

    So very very true. I am a very good shot and extremely comfortable holding a weapon (knife, gun, whatever) BUT I am not naive enough to know that I will be able to defend myself in every instance.

    This could have happened anywhere, including the street you live on.

    I saw no need to mention either one of the women's religion unless it was to stir up the masses and knowing the media, that's why it was done.

  • Yes I find it disturbing that people kill each other for stupid reasons.

  • People are attacked every day, on every continent, and for every reason imaginable. This has as much to do with violent animal instincts (humans ARE animals) as anything. The only reason you are disturbed is because the word 'christian' was used.

    It is just as disturbing when someone is attacked anywhere else, and even MORE SO when they are attacked by someone whom they are supposed to trust.

  • I find any violence disturbing. The religious preference assosciated with it doesn't matter but in case you didn't know there is a war going on in that area right now so there is prone to be more violence. The religion of the victims is a moot point. It was just an attempt for you to play poor persecuted Christian but news flash you live in the United States of America. Christians aren't persecuted here, rather they tend to do most of the persecuting.

  • It is sad and disturbing. I find it more disturbing that you're saying "they" don't kill Jews and Christians here "yet." Your mind set scares me more.

  • I think we forget how fortunate we are to not be living in a war zone, even if it isn't a technically declared war. I'm sure the same sort of things went on during the American Civil war. 


    Answer by RyansMom001 at 5:16 AM on Dec. 20, 2010

  • Yes it is disturbing. However, I think it happened as much because they were women and thought to be vulnerable, as it was because of religion. The exact same things happen all the time over other things as well. They happen to people who are not Judeo-Christian, they happen all over the world and in our own backyard. They happen, it's sad but it's also an unfortunate part of life.
