Statistics Garnished With Bible Verses

Israeli Newspaper Haaretz reported on 16.07.10 that according to a poll Most Americans would back Israel attack on Iran. According to TIPP, a polling unit belonging to TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence, it is stated there that 56 percent of Americans would support an Israeli strike to prevent Iran from building nuclear weapons. But a visit to TIPP's blog shows that the poll results are presented as simple coloured diagram without any further explanations except a poor number of adults interviewed ... and the real source: Investor Business Daily (IBD). But above all, it should be noted that the diagram comes equipped with a bible verse from the Hebrew Qohelet [the Preacher] or Book of Ecclesiastes (its latinized derivation, verses 3:1 - 3:8) as part of a text of crude war propaganda.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose," the Book of Ecclesiastes says. "A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to be far from embracing ... a time of war, and a time of peace."

 The author of the text is stated as the Investor's Business Daily Editorial.

PS:  The  Investor's Business Daily Editorial complained about Obama's health care reform 1 year ago that ""people such as scientist Stephen Hawking wouldn't have a chance in the UK, where the National Health Service would say the life of this brilliant man, because of his physical handicaps, is essentially worthless".
