in response to reader comment: Potentially Another Reason to Escape from Islamic Hatred - Among Supposed Brethren

Contemplating even further why entire family/tribes/communities are driven or similarly compelled to pick up everything and search for somewhere else better to live in freedom from the inhospitable place left behind, one must wonder in the western frame of such contemplations why the English expatriates fled the Anglican Isles for 'religious' reasons and are they comparable in their arguments to those of today when the survivors of such actions of communal extinguishments are merely seeking the same type of relief; and we question those motives?
To be sure, there are those hazards where the enemies of those fleeing are sometimes infiltrated and entrenched and hidden in the exodus in order to expand their terror to newly claimed targets of opportunities,
Dr. Pipes' forum is rife with explorations of how the Middle East paradigm has been in centuries upon centuries of relentless invasions of migratory intrusions of supposedly religiously influenced exterminations that can be reasonably associated with a rebellion to the idea that a single people are responsible for the world's ills; the Jewish people and their Holy One of Israel. After all, this is the proximal target of Islam.
Still, it is seen that Islam targets indiscriminately, with entire regions of the Middle east, now globally, left with the remnants of battles throughout the south Asian's former territories of Hindu, Buddhist, Zoroastrian and all of the minor such adherents of human searches for their deities; then to be influenced by the Jewish based mission of the Gospel of the Nazarene, the Savior of the world; which of course, by many diffident aspirations, needed to be challenged to protect their many other religious pursuits. The question became: to fight or flee? Islam chose to fight, thereby chasing out the love from Christianity with the hatred of Christ.
Couple that with the promise of the Holy One to return to Israel and the reestablished kingdom of Jehovah, Islam is faced with the prospect of competing in that arena and must occupy Jerusalem in the futile effort.
Therefore, the culture of Islam as proposed by the Iranian Islamic Regime, or the revived Kingdom of Israel as promised by the Hebrew Holy Writ, are the choices upon which the world hangs in the balance: which one would we choose now?
