Spidey, a half-doz or so of us have discussed these things many times over the years.
And we ain't done yet!
Okay I'll bite,
I know that Isaac and Ishmael had the same daddy but different Momma's. Isaac' mom, Sarah wanted Ishmael dead and he escaped into the desert and started 6000 years of hatred.
I know that when Mohammed kicked off this mortal coil he left a relative and a spiritual follower to argue over who was to succeed him and it kicked off 1500 years of conflict.
But aside from owning the worlds ass for 600 years and having to put up with arabs and jews going mental, what's Britain got to do with it.
You spout history and make no reference to 800 years of Christian crusades on Jerusalem or how the British fucked up the parcelling of the Mid-East beyond recognition. I didn't read this online, my animation teacher was born in Israel before WWII and called the English terrorists. Colonialism pure and simple. Kuwait? A royal family. Hussein was right. He shoulda nuked 'em when he had a chance, dumbass.
