What do Bill Clinton and Pat Robertson have in common? The Associated Press provides one answer: Clinton, in France for talks with President Jacques Chirac, said Israelis should view [Ariel] Sharon as an example. "Mr. Sharon had not only withdrawn from Gaza, he had started a new party with the purpose of continuing to push for peace," Clinton said. "All of us who believe in peace in the Middle East are in his debt, and so more than anything else, I pray for his health." The Israeli leader's illness "puts yet another obstacle in the path of the peacemakers," Clinton said. "And it's almost as if God were testing them one more time to rise again, to keep on."

    Robertson is 100% correct on his assessment of Israel's unilateral surrender on the West Bank and Gaza. However, I do think that our religious leaders would better serve the conservative cause if they focused on logic and reason rather than religious justifications. Isreal's 100,000 citizen soldiers beat back 3 million invading Arabs, then took the land once occupied by Jordan, Syria and Egypt. They won, they took, and they held the barriers to invasion in the Golan Heights and the aforementioned territories.

    Logic says Sharon is wrong to give the occupied territories back to terrorists and Jew-haters, but being wrong does not equate to deserving a death sentence.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
