Reader comment on item: The Alawi Capture of Power in Syria
in response to reader comment: Another victim of Arabian imperialism

Submitted by eugene quity (Philippines), Jan 3, 2014 at 22:29

the arab peninsula has a diverse culture long before the domination of islam, other faiths and religion and practices to honor god existed and flourished, they are divided into different tribes of different interpretation of the teachings of islam and other religions thats why we have the sunnis,the shiite's,the alawites, the fatimids,druze, christians,coptics etc., sunni's,shiittes and alawites are muslims but each of them practice their faith with a difference thats why we can read in the world news that they killing each other in asserting that their belief is the correct and the right ones compared to the others.

but if we study the beginnings of religion we can trace and conclude that all of the religions originate in the same region the holy land,the palestine and iraq (considered as the lost eden as describe in the writings of the ancient prophets its the individual interpretation that leads to the indifference and in fighting of these noble and chosen tribes of god. it sad to know that they do not unite and live as one in unity and tolerance of human dignity, in the end all of this religion of ours can't judge as worthy to be called and live with our creator(god) instead we will be judged on how we live our lives on earth by helping others in need and respecting the dignity and sacredness of life of every human being, all of us has sinned and there's no exception only god knows who will be permitted to be on his side to live eternally this will be revealed on the judgement day.
