'I don't think [that word] means what you think it means'


A commenter writes on the Jews, especially those who don't support Palestinians, must be expelled, demanded Students Representative Council at South African university thread (paragraph break added):

How about the headline…Muslims students at major US university who refuse to recognize Israel's right to exist will be asked to leave. As an AMERICAN, I grow weary of always having to take the moral high ground over Muslims.

As a Christian, why can't I act as badly as a Muslim? Fight fire with fire and deport Muslims from the US? Because Jesus said I shouldn't act that way?

Might be a good idea to brush up a bit on Christianity there.
