    The teenage son of American actor John Travolta has died suddenly while on a family holiday in the Bahamas.

    The actor's lawyer, Michael Ossi, said Jett Travolta, who was 16, suffered a seizure, and attempts to revive him at the scene failed.

    The family were staying in a property in the grounds of the Old Bahama Bay Hotel on Grand Bahama Island.

    Jett, who had a history of seizures, was the eldest child of Travolta and his actress wife, Kelly Preston.

    The couple also have a daughter, Ella Blue, who was born in 2000.

    My prayers are with all, me thinks grex9101 is a bit out of order though, ALL human life is to be respected, politics has nadda to do with it.
    Death from Natural causes is unavoidable, but Bombs and Bullets are in human hands.
    RIP Jett & All who lose their lives as a result of "Israeli Terrorism" and Palestinian "freedom fighters".

    "Terrorism" as defined by the oxford dictionary online:
    A system of terror.

    1. Government by intimidation as directed and carried out by the party in power in France during the Revolution of 1789-94; the system of the ‘Terror’ (1793-4): see TERROR n. 4.

    1795 Hist. in Ann. Reg. 112/2 It would..renew the reign of terrorism. 1817 LADY MORGAN France VIII. (1818) II. 357 He was obliged to remain abroad during the whole reign of terrorism. 1861 GOLDW. SMITH Irish Hist. 85 Like..the terrorism of the Jacobins..it was a moral epidemic.
    2. gen. A policy intended to strike with terror those against whom it is adopted; the employment of methods of intimidation; the fact of terrorizing or condition of being terrorized. Also transf. Cf. TERRORIST 1b.

    You're missing the point, Marzbarz brought in a subject which:

    A) had nothing to do with the thread
    B) served to further his political/religious beliefs (You'll notice there was no mention of the non-Israeli casualties).

    I agree "all human life" etc etc, but I take issue when someone states their sympathies for one side, and not the other. That's prejudice and has no place on this forum, or this thread.

    I am NOT out of order on this and I take GREAT exception at someone blatantly forcing a political/religious issue on someone elses thread.

    It's a thread in which someone has died, marz simply extended his sympathy to the hundereds of innocent children currently being murdered in Palestine, including a group at a bus stop. I dont see the 'politics' nor 'religious ideology' (?!) in that. Is this one tragic death more important than the systematic massacre aka genocide being inflicted upon the defenceless Palestinians ?. You've made this thread 'political' and engage your before brain you type next time.

    I am not "biased" however correct me if i'm wrong but the Jewish scriptures preach "an eye for an eye" (BTW this would make the whole world blind)
    IMHO the very law that governs Israel is inherently based upon a barbaric system (thousands of years old) which would result in a very unstable world if every one on earth would adopt this teaching i mean what would happen if a child "accidentally " killed another child, would they want this child dead also?

    As already stated, I didn't hijack this thread. I merely took exception to someone bringing politics and religion into it. Which imo was a bad move on the part of another poster.

    There's a bag of rep waiting for you if you can tell me what the correct thing to do in the event of someone having a seizure is. I work with someone who's prone to suffering them, so it'd be much appreciated.

    i dont see the harm in mentioning others who are suffering along with Jett, Its more [COLOR="Red"]respectable [/COLOR]to say my prayers go out to Jett and all them others in palestine who are getting killed or have died just recently, then to rather mention reporting mars again then again for his religious view etc etc wtf i cant see anything about his religious views or anything else,

    Tbh my heart goes out more to them people who are getting killed, then to be allowed to die a natural death. Also if you dont like to see thread spoiling even though this is not, i best suggest you dont use forums, as people can say what they want, whenever they want aslong as there aint carp just coming out of their mouths, and again my heart goes out to everyone who has lost someone they know and to John and family. :thinking:

    Thought are with the whole family at this very hard time, as said before you shouldn't out live your kids.
    my step brother died 3 weeks ago from a heart attack while playing rugby, so know how the family will be feeling right now.

    Please don't argue in this thread guys,.

    Sparing a thought for Palestine is no problem, but this isn't the thread for a charged political argument.

    Ditto!

    Well said...

    Thanks to rugger-tyke & MarzBarz for their words. x

    It is very sad to loose anyone, especially a child. I could not imagine what parents go through.
    My deepest sympathy to anyone who has lost a loved one recently. No matter who they are, what culture, what city. Sympathy and compassion has no restrictions.
    xx
