Reader comment on item: Insight into Obama's Middle East Policy?
in response to reader comment: failed Bush ME legacy

I think there are any number of solutions that could work in any area of the world where there isn't a Muslim base/government. There aren't going to be any "common sense" solutions or intellectual banderings over how to resolve the system in the Middle East.

If you look into many of the discussions on this medium here, you will see that all kinds of people from many different religions and other beliefs from a number of nations try to talk sense or make political suggestions. When it comes down to it, the Muslims don't want to see any other solution other than their own absolute dominance of not only the Middle East, but the entire planet. If you want solutions, then you are going to have to understand the Islamic mind set which is really adamant about what it wants whether through compromise, a treaty, ceasefire, or anything else. The rules shift but, always come down to one absolute - beg, borrow, steal, murder, rape, lie, sign treaties, or whatever it takes to get the non-Muslims to temporarily buy into whatever is currently convenient for Islam. There is no intellect or sense when you come down to the basic "Islam".

If you or anyone else wants to dicker, compromise or "work out" a peace plan, then the the Mulsims will comply in any way to dither away time until they have whatever power it takes to subject mankind while they are perusing and think-tanking new solutions. Good luck, because that is all a non-religious game plan has against the insanity of the Middle East and their blind allegiance to whatever it takes to "dominate".

Islam has nothing to do with love, sense, intellect, logic, truth, history, or anything else except whatever it takes to dominate with a vengeance. The poor and repressed of the world are kept
poor" and "repressed" for a reason. The Middle East alone has ten times the wealth neccessary to wipe out all poverty and repression on the entire planet, but it won't happen.

The stew pot of rage and hatred is kept alive in the Middle East to release against the blind and totally unjustified hatred against anything not Islam. That especially goes against, first, the Jews, and then the believers of jesus Christ. These are satan's primary opponents. Secular society will blindly follow their own belief systems irrelevant to the real wars being fought.

Greed, hate, power, wealth, and self-indulgence are hoarded by the powerful in all nations to their own ends - greed, hate, power, wealth, and self indulgence. The Muslims throw another element into the stew pot - a "god" of lust, blind revenge, and seething hatreds.

We are talking about changing the "hearts" of mankind, and that won't happen without supernatural intervention - God. Everyone eventually comes to the point where the agenda of self predominates. The God of Jesus Christ has the power, love, forgiveness, and only game plan that will win out against God's weaker rival Satan (disguised as Islam, Hinduism, Buddism, etc.). Satan is far more powerful than anyone gives him credit for. He is "the father of all lies". He is desperate to get mankind off God's timetable and plan. He will do anything to de-rail God's plan because he knows the ultimate end.

Secular society can dither around all it wants to. Those with the "god" driven "plans" will eventually dominate, and only one of those will win the platform that the whole universe is based on - truth, love, integrity, and the one God that insists on allegiance to those and him. He provides the only plan that does away with mindless greed and the ever multiplying hatreds of man.
