Unless there is some kind of issue with the inadvertent spreading of malware, the suspension is itself enough to stop any moral and decent person from ever considering using it.
"Vatican rejects “chosen people” claim, calls on Israel to end “occupation”" (Christians are so terrified of the Jews these days that it is refreshing to see a sincere and unapologetic assertion of Christian values):
"Greek-Melchite Archbishop Cyrille Bustros sparked an interreligious firestorm when he suggested that Israel was “using Scripture” to continue its occupation of Palestinian territory."US blasts Europe’s plan for anti-snooping network as 'unfair advantage'" The most striking thing about a sudden decline of an empire is this inexplicable inability to look after the self-interests of the empire. Always remember that this wealth-wrecking obsession with spying is directly connected to the 'war on terror', the gift of the Jewish people to all Americans.
"The Holy Scriptures cannot be used to justify the return of Jews to Israel and the displacement of the Palestinians,” Bustros said at the close of a two-week conference in Rome, Italy, “to justify the occupation by Israel of Palestinian lands.”
The Archbishop then questioned the biblical idea of a “promised land” set aside by a specific group of people.
"We Christians cannot speak of the promised land as an exclusive right for a privileged Jewish people,” Bustros continued. "This promise was nullified by Christ. There is no longer a chosen people – all men and women of all countries have become the chosen people."
Bustros led the group that drafted the synod's concluding statement on Israel and the Palestinians.
The controversial comments came at the conclusion of a two-week Vatican conference assembled to discuss the plight of Christians in the Middle East.
Pope Benedict XVI was in attendance at the synod and celebrated Mass in St. Peter's Cathedral on Sunday with the bishops."
