Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

@ sana 11 iregardless of whether the suras(muhameds revelations) are in chronological order or not does not mean that he did not say them . The fact of the matter you cant label yourself a religion of peace if your prophet condones violence.

Re: “Why is Israel bombing Gaza?

I have read the Koran and it seems to me that Mohamed goes from being a relativly peacefull follower of God to someone who condones violence to unbelivers including Jews and Christians. To say it is a religion of peace is inacurate. Jewdaism is also not a religion of peace just read the old testament. Christianity however is a religion of peace whether its followers have adhered to it or not is another matter. There is much more room and excuses to use violence when the book you follow condones violence hence why we have the issues in the middle east right now. (excuse the bad spelling)

Re: “R.I.P., Voting Rights Act

Interesting how the person reviewing emails is not letting my comment through. This editorial board (rodney Carmicheal and the head editor) have been givien many opportunities to do the right thing and address the vast racial discrepancies in the city of Atlanta and Fulton county government. They have dropped the ball each time. This papers readership is made up of mostly people from Atlanta and should pay close attention to the issues of this city. If 83% of your emploees are one racial make up and your population is 40 something percent the other as in Fulton county then there is a big issue there (or news story). Here is the link to the AJC article on the racial disparity in the city of Altanta and Fulton county government. http://www.myajc.com/news/news/local-govt-… .

Re: “R.I.P., Voting Rights Act

All I will say as this editorial board (rodney carmichael and the senior editor) have been given many chances to do the right thing with regard to writing about equal representation in our city and county government and has dropped the ball. I live in Atlanta so I care about those areas allot more than I do others, including Norcross. We need to ask this paper to do the right thing and represent the best interest of this city which is to have a diverse work force. This papers readership is almost all city of Atlanta and Fulton county residence. This is a BIG story. People cant get jobs in Fulton county government because of their race.

Here is the link to the AJC article about how 83% of the fulton county work force is black but the popilation is 40 somthing percent.

Re: “R.I.P., Voting Rights Act

Why dont you balance your stories with news of why there is no diversity in Atlanta or Fulton government. HMMM becuse it is about white guilt not what is right. It is wrong to discriminate no matter if you are white or black, however it is more acceptable to discriminate on a white person. As seen by this paper time in and time out we will not see a balanced story ever (kind of like Fox news fair and balanced).
