Hello spa !

Thanks for your kind words.

> West do not like Orthodox Christians. Proof:

a: Armenian Genocide,Syrian Christian Genocide in the middle east.

b: Bosnia ,Kosovo.<

How can the West like Orthodox Christians if the final aim of the big game going on at present is the control of Orthodox Russia and her enormous natural resources ? You first isolate your main enemy by weakening him and eliminating his friends and allies and strike when he is too weak and alone to resist.

> I feel the west ,particularily America has come under the bad Influence of Islam. <

To me the West and especially America seem to have reached the stage which ancient Rome reached at the end of the Roman Republic and which Sallust summed up as follows : "In Rome everything is for sale. This Republic will perish the moment it finds a buyer rich enough to purchase it". Well, the Saudis are quite rich and they have tried to buy power in America. And I'd say not without visible success.
