That is a most exceptional piece of writing. I totally applaud the author.
This war is hardly about religion, though I know many would like to make it seem that way.
This war is a continuance of World War 1, World War 2, and the Cold war.
In this situation, religion is used much like nationalism, as a tool of propaganda to round the masses.
This war is very much about religion. It began over a thousand years ago when Muslims attempted to expel anything non-Muslim from the Middle East. It's awar that has continued from that time to this, in one form or another. WWI, II and the Cold War are relative newcomers to the game.
It's a clash of cultures based on religions that will end only with the subjugation and/or annilhilation of one side or the other.
Oh it goes back far longer than that my friend.
I fear that this war, is a war that has been fought since the days of the 12 tribes of Israel. Perhaps, even farther than that.
My point was, that this particular stage of what's going on, is just a reliving of the Cold war and the World Wars.
The Soviets backed the Arabs, and logically, the US backed the Israelis.
This is where the US starts to peak their little heads in.
Not in a global sense. In a global sense, this war didn't begin until a concerted effort was made my Muslims to expel all non-Muslims from an entire region of the Earth.
The wars fought during the days of the 12 tribes of Israel were mostly for local control, not a concerted effort by all Muslims to destroy all Israelis.
You don't seem to understand that it doesn't matter whether there name is "Muslim" or "Benjamite".
Islam is simply the religious blanket thrown over this branch of culture.
As for it attempting to expel all non-Muslims, that is fallacious propaganda.
Of course I don't understand. Was just waiting for that.
Fallacious propaganda would be anything contrary to historical fact. Kinda like what you're trying to sell.
It's history bro, until someone else comes up with a history book with different facts, I ain't gonna believe you.
I agree with GunnyL 100%.
