Reader comment on item: The "Shocking Document" that Shaped the Middle East Turns 100

The last paragraph would be a wonderful suggestion if not a one relatively new phenomenon. Islamist forces seems found a rational in continuing devastation in the Middle East as a source of ever growing flaw of refugees. They see it as an effective means of proliferation of Muslim culture, religion and influence.

And rightly so. As we can observe, Islam occupies ten times, perhaps more air time on TV and radio than twenty years ago. More Muslims occupy important positions in politics and media. Given unproportional birth rates further increase in number of refugees will prove such strategy working.
