Re: “El Gallo Giro

My husband and I willingly make the trip from Boise when we have a craving for good, quality mexican food (which is often). We have yet to be disappointed. The service and food are great. justicenow is correct, Enrique does seem to be there all the time. He has a constant eye on the place and keeps his staff alert of customer's needs. HIGHLY recommend the trip to Kuna. Pay no attention to the location, it's worth it! Just don't expect to get a table quickly on Friday or Saturday nights!

Re: “Ishtar Market and Restaurant

After reading this review I jetted off to see for myself last Friday. LOVED it. I shared the Ishtar Plate with my husband and it was plenty of food for both of us. MMMmmm loved the cucumber mint salad. I also enjoyed looking around the Market after we ate. I'll be purchasing my spices and olives there next time! We took a sample of each of the desserts from the counter to go. Great flavors, even better prices. We will visit often.

Re: “An Ex-Xian's Xmas

My apologies. Please replace "Profit Mohamed" with Prophet Mohamed.

Re: “An Ex-Xian's Xmas

Jesus existed. He left a considerable following that was persecuted for hundreds of years. Followers that were killed and others that lived in hiding and moved about; the poor followers that were a product of their lives and their religion therefore having very little to no belongings offering the “proof” you demand. In order for items to make it 2,000 years, it’s kind of like a game of statistics. Out of X number of items that were not destroyed initially in that era, only a certain number were left in the types of places or buried in the types of climates that will preserve them. And items were made much poorly than by today's standards, particularly the texts, which were all hand written on things as feeble as papyrus scrolls?

Josephus was mentioned earlier and shot down, but what about Josephus? He writes of many, many, people that have been corroborated to exist through other evidence and is in fact deemed credible by historians? Why would Josephus have been fooled so easily? Think about it. If you say Jesus doesn't exist, then it's like saying anyone else Josephus wrote about didn't exist. Wouldn't that look stupid?

King Herod existed because the remains of the stuff he built are there, and in the Jewish records where it is written. But the guy he tried to kill as a baby, oh no... he didn’t exist. Pontus Pilate? He existed, according to Roman chronicles. The High Priest, I forgot his name, he is listed in the Jewish record as well, the head Pharisee. Yet Jesus, the figure of which all of these proven figures revolve around and are famous for, didn't exist.

Even the profit Mohamed recognized Jesus Christ as one of God's messenger:
Surah 2:136
Say: "We believe in Allah, and the revelation given to us, and to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to all prophets from their Lord: We make no difference between one and another of them, And to Him do we submit."

I get that through history and today there are multitudes of really half-ass examples of “Christians” in this world who do more damage and trauma than they have the insight to realize; but why so much hate for a man that taught of love and peace? This same guy that turned over tables at the temples which were corrupt with greed and hypocrisy (hmm…like some churches today, no doubt) and instead spent his time with the rejected of their society, the untouchables: prostitutes, tax collectors, etc.
