Just a question for the Middle East mavens:
If someone was violently trying to enter your house and they are screaming for your death as they do it, do you happily let them in, or do you shoot them before they breach the front door (remember they have been there before and have killed others of your children)?
Or do you have to wait and allow them to kill one of your children this time before you respond?
Or should you instead just offer them tea and cookies and hope for the best?
And has the world set different rules for you because of how you pray to God so everyone else in the world can defend themselves, but not your family?
