For decades, Israel has been Public Enemy Number One on the Muslim street. Today, Bashar al-Assad is vying for that ignominious title

Religion is bound to destroy the earth - if they possibly can - or if their stupid holy texts mange to compel them in any way whatsoever= sure makes anyone hope to be a "believer - doesn't it?1

Hardly anyone in the media says this is a Sunni---Shiite civil war. The major split in Islam is that between the majority Sunnis and the minority Shiites. T he split goes back to events in the 7th century.Sectarian violence persists to this day from Pakistan to Yemen and is a major element of friction throughout the Middle East. Tensions between communities have intensified during power struggles, such as the Bahraini uprising, the 2003 Iraq War, and most recently the Syrian civil war.

It was freedom v dictatorship...Now it's breaking down into Sunni v Shia ...It could engulf the whole region.

A feature on Britain's Channel 4 News a few weeks back on how men from around the Arab world are travelling to the Syrian refugee camps to sexually exploit widowed and orphaned women...

Arabs see, but they choose not to comment or do a darn thing. This comes down to Arabs do not like each other. This has been proven with the Palestinistians. Saudi Arabia, Jordan get involved in Syria? As far as they are concerned, Assad made his bed.....

The Syrian civil war is just an addition to a much longer list of sectarian wars fought in the Middle East. Strangely enough the media in Europe have for example been pointing out the horrible aggression between Sunnites and Shiites in Iraq after the fall of Sadam, and the continued fighting in Libya between Islamic fractions, but in the USA that seems to be news. Sectarian violence is a very real thing in the Middle East, has been there for a long time and spreading faster and faster because of the arms build-up in the region.
