This is nothing comparing to what we read in the Book of Numbers. I don't recall the chapters since I don't have a Bible but you can easily search about it.
In one occasion the God of Israelites demands from the armed forces when they entered in a conquered (city and this atrocities are vary from nation to nation) to do the following:
1.Either to kill the ALL including infants and animals and destroy their belongings and their gold
2.Either to kill including infants and animals a keep the belongings
3.Or to KILL all MALES including infants, kill all women who are not virgin(how can you define a virgin woman in a time of war, specially if she is quite young?)and also keep the female infants.
4.In some occasions God demanded to demolish the City and in some other cases not
If this is not war crime then what it is? The Hellenic nation knows from first hand genocides and war crimes that Turkey commited against us, and Turks acted like the Israel Nation. Actually it is called GENOCIDE to 1.5 million Armenians 0.5 million Greeks in Asia and 1 million Assyrians just to establish their Othoman nation in the early 20th century.
I'm very sensitive in this kind of behaviour, but I cannot accept that God really told to the Israelites to do those GENOCIDES and war crimes. If it was really God's command then who will save us from this kind of God?
And I guess JW's have simmilar attitude of a God commiting the GREATEST GENOCIDE in history by wipping out from the face of the Earth 97% of humans.
