    Will going back to pre-WW1 borders stop the strife in the Middle East?...

    The Demise of Middle East Borders
    May 27, 2013 - A common theme running through much of the leading commentary on the Syrian crisis is the idea that the principal borders of the modern Middle East, created by the 1916 Sykes-Picot Agreement, are about to be fundamentally altered if not erased completely. In mid-March, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu gave a university speech in which he said that the political order in the Middle East created by the Sykes-Picot Agreement was coming to an end. He envisioned Turkey’s influence returning to those areas which were once under its sovereignty but were lost to the European colonial powers.

    I cannot take this article seriously and see it, from an Israeli source, as simply more Zionist Hasbara propaganda. Of course, Israel wants present ME borders torn down, its a way to grab, to steal, more land.

    The demise of NATIONAL BORDERS---is actually a very fundamental concept
    in the Utopian ideology of "DAR AL ISLAM" For those who do not know--
    this construct disdains "NATIONALISM" in favor of "CALIPHATE"----The
    caliphate is a monotheistic ----DIVINELY ORDAINED government. Anyone who
    questions the idea that people very interested in either establishing
    a CALIPHATE or reestablishing ----one ----and rejects that idea that included
    in that idea is a concept of DOING AWAY WITH NATIONAL BOUNDARIES----is
    either lying or ill-informed. A few years ago---Achmadinejad---announced in
    a General meeting of in the UN-----his simple statement of the FACT OF
    THE COMING CALIPHATE-----in these words "ISLAM IS THE RELIGION FOR
    ALL OF THE WORLD" -----read that "WORLD WIDE CALIPHATE".

    However practicalities do reign-----and no one is stupid enough to
    believe that the whole world is about to give in to this idea. Erdogan
    would be delighted to just have his chunk-----the OTTOMAN EMPIRE---
    and---of course----Iran could start on its road to utopia with its
    very own SHIITE caliphate "HEZBOLLIA" There is yet another movement
    afoot----in the world ---which is an advocate of "WORLD WIDE THEOCRATIC
    MONOTHEISTIC GOVERNMENT"---<<<< this thing is supposed to be a
    syncretism of the "christian and muslim world" which---of course --
    together constitutes a MAJORITY OF THE WORLD's population

    (anyone getting a bit of a twinge that he knows a few people
    who seem to be //// leaningggg///// in such a direction???/////___
