Reader comment on item: The Middle East's Tribal Affliction

Submitted by Vijay (Switzerland), Jan 24, 2008 at 12:16

For all the universal claims of Islam, 1400 years of Islam has made very little dent in the basic tribal psychology of ME. If anything, islam has only helped in tribalizing individualistic societies.
