Was He There?

Last week, Israeli commandos killed nine people, while seizing a ship carrying supplies to the people for the people of Gaza. The news media do not seem to have released a full list of all the people on the ship, but I wonder if Jesus was there. He likes hanging out with people who are imprisoned and he enjoys feeding the hungry.

For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me (Matt 25:42-43).
On second thoughts, he could not have been there. The Syrophoenicians are only allowed the crumbs that fall from the Israelis table (Mark 7:28).

I was not joking. This is a serious issue. Nine people are dead.

I was actually being facetious. My interpretion of Mark 7:28 was deliberately twisted and wrong. I assumed that when put in black and white, the distortion would be obvious. The sad thing is that these twisted words reflected what many American Christians believe.
