US Medic Treats Terrorist

"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;" said the Master as recorded by Matthew 5:44.

My heart sank to my knees when I watched the video (below) of Army PFC Stephen Tschiderer, a medic, being shot in the chest by an enemy sniper, hiding in a van just 75 yards away. The incident was filmed by the terrorists. Praise the Lord for body armor. Private Tschiderer immediately fell to the ground from the impact, but he popped right back up, took cover and located the enemy’s position. After tracking down the by then wounded sniper, with a team from the 1st Iraqi Army Brigade, Tschiderer captured the terrorist and gave medical treatment to the man who had tried to kill him just minutes before. (Army Times)

Hat Tip to QandO Blog who asks "Did you hear the 'Allah Akbar' being repeated over and over by the insurgents who filmed this?" However, praise the Lord, all the "Allah Akbars" were for naught, as Allah lost once again.
