Gerald Steinberg, writing in the Wall Street Journal (July 17, 2006), explains that in order to get Israel out of Lebanon in 2000, France promised Israel that if they would withdraw to the international border... "France and its partners would send peacekeepers to prevent terror and missile attacks against Israel, help the Lebanese army take control of the border, and disarm Hezbollah."

Most of all let's remember that they are not out of the reach of Jesus Christ. Both the Apostle Paul and Jesus' disciple Simon the Zealot were terrorists before their conversion.
