I don't believe that there is a war between religions. I do firmly believe that all religions were inspired with good intentions and trying to promote peace. That is what all the handreeds of prophets did.

The war is between civilizations unfortunately. And I've found two interesting facts in the history:

1. When big empires try to expand and make a war against their neighbors;

and 2. When small sub-nations try to destroy the country they live in.

And the most dangerous in the contemporary times is the second one, because we do not expect any big powerfull 'empires' to be created and insulting others in our days.
