Since Rich D. has run away from this debate, I will just post my arguments WRT the Richard Dawkins quote. (Rich D, Richard Dawkins, interesting little coincidence)
"a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser;"
Not much of a challenge here.
Vindictive: disposed to seek revenge: vengeful
"And I will lay my vengeance upon Edom by the hand of my people Israel: and they shall do in Edom according to mine anger and according to my fury; and they shall know my vengeance, saith the Lord GOD." Ezekiel 25:14
Bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser:
The Bible says that god ordered the distruction of 60 cities, including the murders of all in the cities, men woman and children. Deuteronomy 3:1-7
