ISLAM & TRIBALISM

Reader comment on item: The Middle East's Tribal Affliction
in response to reader comment: Islam discourages tribalism

Submitted by mark goldberg (Kenya), Jan 28, 2008 at 03:54

Some people claim to be muslims but still believe unconsciously in tribalism: they dont say it with their mouths, but with their actions.

Muslims in Arabia are not opposed to Israelis just because of that instinctive me against non-me syndrome: there are real issus of land and occupation etc

Trying to find ingenious reasons for arab resilient opposition against Israel sometimes reaches an absurd level like this one from the writer Prof. Pipes quotes.

Thank you
