roots of conflict in Iraq

Reader comment on item: The Roots of Iraq's Rebellion

Submitted by donvan (United States), Apr 13, 2004 at 19:47

The root cause of the violence in Iraq, as with all the region, is because of a common shared, philosophy : Mohammedism. This philosophy originated, expanded ,was promulgated by a merchant-turned-philosopher in the 7th century. The philosophical
underpinnings center on absolute submission to dogma, and on pain of death, rejection of the dogma. The hostility and aggressiveness demonstrated reflect the depth this deviant philosophical system had embedded itself in the population.

We see practically no critical critique within academia of the philosophy of the person Mohammed. We see much ado about the sophistry and nuance how various groups have embraced Mohammedism and their ritual displays. The solution is to destroy the
militants abroad with uncompromising military force. Domestically: discredit, vilify, much the same method used to discredit the economic philosophy of Marx and Hegel during the last century. Moderate Mohammedism is a hope; a faith, a belief which
serves only to inhibit destruction to the animating philosophy of the unfortunate followers of this philosophy of death, slavery,and inhumanity.
