My apologies to you guys. We only know the words we read online.

Sorry.


You're only forgiven if you come back to The Forum's Minecraft server. :p

I'd like to add, though, that the deaths in Syria have been happening daily for over a year, whereas this arson is just one single-hitting issue. If you wanted me to find where any of those posters talked about the death of individuals sincerely in the past, it'd be pretty hard to find considering the timespan Id have to look through.

What the hell is worse about this than killing people

I don't get why this seems to almost piss people off more than actual crimes against humanity

I find it funny that people care this much about some old buildings.

The reactions in this topic have topped many, not all, but many of the reactions to actual human casualties. This is like when people cry over a dog more than a human, but with some old piece of s*** bricks.

Apparently history isn't important.

As a student of history, things like this pisses me off to no end. Another sad tale in the Middle East's fall from grace.

This synagogue isn't the only one. Syria is one of the oldest nations, Damascus one of the oldest cities. I'm sure this synagogue is one of many national treasures and artifacts that have been destroyed in this conflict. And the Middle East, the birthplace of human civilization, has likely lost TONS of artifacts of historical significance thanks to the constant wars and conflicts. It's truly one of the saddest parts of the Middle East crises.

However, people should stop jumping on Orca. Fact is this is only a tragedy to history buffs and lovers. It's OK to not care about history. It's NEVER OK to not care about human life. He is perfectly justified in saying human life > old buildings, because at the end of the day, that's true.

I value history and historical sites but people reach a point where they are clearly white knighting.
