Samaritan's Purse: Lebanese Muslims "Softened" to Gospel

As you might expect, Samaritan's Purse, the Christian organization run by Franklin Graham (of "(Islam is a) very evil and a very wicked religion" infamy) has been exploiting the war in Lebanon to proselytize:

Samaritan's Purse has continued to reach out through its partners to the war-devastated people of southern Lebanon. "Right now," [Ken] Isaacs notes, "we're supporting a network of six pastors and over 20 volunteers who are working out through the schools."

One thing that has been interesting, the ministry spokesman says, is that "many Muslims have asked, 'Why are you Christians doing this?' -- and it has started a dialog." He says this crisis has softened the hearts of many Muslims in Lebanon to the spiritual truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

This is much the same as when SP had battalions of missionaries lined up to invade Iraq after the military campaign started.

I find it all very cynical and calculating (not to mention extraordinarily disrespectful to the people living there & to their culture & religion: par for the course for FG, however, who is the heir apparent of the Spanish conquistadors).

The better question for "Samaritan's purse" is why do they support the bombing of Lebanon in the first place...I'd reckon the civilians' hearts arent going to be soft about the selfish desire of the christofascists acid trip ride to rapture land.
