Whoa!  I see a sweeping generalisation here!  I *know* I have some
enemies because they *behave* like enemies - they attack me maliciously

they claim to support the first object and the TS.  I *know* such people
are enemies from their behavior!

With great respect Doss, try telling this to someone who is aiming at

In Mother India, home of the "Masters" there has been a sad history of
murder, maiming and destruction, not from the wicked Christians, but
