    Modern Muslims have religious conflict with: Hindus in Kashmir;
    Christians in Nigeria, Egypt, and Bosnia; atheists in Chechnya; Baha’is in
    Iran; Animists in Darfur; Buddhists in Thailand; each other in Iraq, Pakistan,
    Somalia, and Yemen; Jews in Israel; Why is Islam involved in more sectarian and
    religious conflicts than any other religion today? In fact, why is Islam the
    only religion in conflict with every single one of today’s major world

    But you think belligerent pugnacious Islam has legitimate grievances in this
    constant conflict, and that, for example in Palestine, Islam is just defending
    its own reasonable interests?

    No, not at bottom. At bottom what we have in Islam is a violent, expansionist
    totalitarianism. That’s why Islam is in conflict all over the world with every
    other religion.

    You honestly have to be a robot. Did you even try this time to cohere an actual argument this time, or do you just have a template that you copy and paste all your ‘I hate muslims’ rants?

    Why do you always attack me instead of the facts presented?

    Are you denying Muslims are fighting jihadist battles against all the religions I have listed above? If so, then make your case.

    Otherwise we can only assume you know I am right and your default position is to attack my credibility as a means of deflecting the issue – an issue you cannot debate cogently.

    Arafat, don’t flatter yourself with with calling what you present as facts. These may have been events that have occurred, but these are facts that are disattached historically form Palestine (Hence you digging for the bottom of the barrel with applying various historical time periods throughout various economic models to a 67 year old occupation of Palestine) . Palestine comprises of various religions and has prior to colonizing [something that you really seem to not digest]. Anyways, calling yourself a credible source is like using a white supremacist for empirical facts surrounding the civil wars politics.

    As well you tend to forget that other religions have their sectarian shock troops as well, where Hindu nationalists kill en mass Muslim minorities in India, Christians in Lebanon, former Yugoslavia, and in Palestine during the duration of the crusades where fanatical and sectarian. These Christians throughout their time period with either the expansion of the Roman empire throughout the middle east thanks to Alexander the Great. You tend to turn a blind eye to the inherent fanatical violence of those on the far right such as the Christian Death Squads in Lebanon during ’83 killing Palestinians en mass or Kahane and Jabotinsky’s fascist crews destroying all that lay in their path. This was prior to “Muslim” fanatics in Palestine taking reigns of their liberation movement during the late ’90’s after the gutting of the PLO and Fatah. You have to remember that Hamas did not form until the ’80s where the occupation of Palestine had been raging since 1948.

    Your cognitive dissonance as usual rages worse than a migraine while manning a jackhammer. Continuous, nauseating, and omnipresent.
