    This is a great story...I remember once being one of only 4 people to get off a plane and enter Bangladesh during the middle of a coup, but I've got nothing on this guy!!

    Not all of the armies in this war are Islamic. The basis of the war is divisions between clans, rather than religions per se. If you dont understand the basis of the conflict, maybe ask rather than guessing.
