in response to reader comment: Islamic invaders were not imperialists and western imperialists were not religious tyrants.

Dear Prashant
Hapy new year 2018.

Thanks for your acknowledgement that Islam in its current form is not an Arabic imperialism.

However I disagree with your proposition that Christianity is not a form of Western imperialism. The American colonial invasion of the West Asia that started with the US invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 was blessed by the Evangelical Churches of USA. These are the same Churches that support the Zionist colonization project in Palestine.

The American colonial invasion was inspired as a legacy of the American exceptionalism concept which is also the main reason behind the Evangelical Churches.

So I believe that the American evangelicalism is a legacy of American White colonialism in our times.
