Maybe Osama is right, that the west, is leading a crusade against the Middle East. Israel was created after WW, Lebanon is led by a Christian leader, Iraq is now in control of America and so is Afghanistan. The rest of the countries in the Middle East are pretty much friendly to the US and the West. The two countries that are in contrary to this are Iran and Syria.

But if you are going to argue as much, you need to understand the Middle East. Forget the religion (which we all know is mostly Muslim), forget the nations created after WW, which was drawn up by Churchill (or so I was told), but why don't we look at the different ethnic groups and sects of religion in the Middle East to solve the Middle East issues. Go on Google and look at the ethnic-religious map of the Middle East then cross-reference that to the political map of the Middle East.

Now after you've done that, ask yourself, why were the Middle East countries drawn up so different from it? That is because the American, Jewish and some western governments' goals are to divide and conquer the Middle East. Their goal is to make the region divided, making the people fight amongst themselves, always weak. The Middle East possesses the most sought natural resource in the world, yet they are the source of great poverty in the world? It is or that reason; a result of the goal of making the Middle East weak.

There is also the religious aspect of this. Many decision making people that lobby and control the American government have much sentiment of Christian power in the Middle East that dates back to the Islamic conquest of the middle east. I must say, as a Spiritist (Christian faith), that I do not agree with the religion of Islam. I must also say that I do not completely agree with the catholic faith. But here is the difference in my point of view.

The church is a corrupt institution just like any institution in this earth. Humans are corrupt because they are selfish. That is the end of it. That is why in any institution that is designed, there is always the need for checks and balances to maintain, or at least try to, order, fairness, and minimize corruption. The problem is, once these institutions are in place, rules are changed to slowly find loopholes in the system and allow corruption to crawl back in. That is the description of not only the Catholic Church, all religious institutions but all governments. The bible itself was a document which was edited but mostly, a document which was supposed to be somewhat an biography of Jesus, lacked most of what Jesus life was, omitting a great deal of his message.

The good thing is, is that with technology, we can rescue those omitted documents, and also with what we read in the bible we can study Jesus just life and message to the world. He had many messages but most importantly, Jesus said that if you live by the sword, you die by the sword. He also said that evil is not what goes in your mouth, but what comes out of it. I think these specific messages, and I'm sure others, contradict with Islam.

When you look at Islam we have the issue of how it was originally formed. It was formed through warfare, conquest, murder, killing of innocent people, mass religious conversion, and worst of all, ethnic cleansing. Many people might argue against that, but the proof is out there, just Google it. You can read about how Islam was created, its conquests, but you can also read about how the Middle East was conquered and changed religiously and ethnically by the conquerors. Do I approve that? Obviously, I do not approve of this.

The crusades were a direct response to these conquests. The reconquista in Spain and Portugal started right after the conquest of Iberia by the Moors. But obviously I condone both reactions because Jesus said if an enemy strikes your right cheek, present him your right. So obviously I am explaining this, not justifying it. But as far as the religion goes, with the exception of treatments of other religious groups, and females, it is a just religion with good intentions as God as the center which is always good. All these information I cited are all facts which you can find information on it in the internet.

Some atheists might argue and say oh religion is the problem in the world. They say that religion is the cause of wars in the world. I have one odd yet curiously informative response. Watch South Park - go God go episode. After you watch it, you will realize that the problem is not religion, it is us; humans. Our aggressive, territorial, selfish, proud ways are the cause of what we see today in the world.

That is all ladies and gentleman. I'm expecting a lot of responses so go ahead and argue with me, dialogue is the path to the truth. Thank you.
