    Could you fathom how infuriating it would be to have been Clinton trying to mediate between Arafat and Ehud Barak? I'm sure who killed whom in 800 AD were being argued.

    Ah, yes, I get your point. Disputes and grievances, one Middle Easterner to another, probably do transcend millennia. Of course I was referring to the complaints that Middle Easterners have with America.

    definitely. You can never get to an end if you are always arguing over a beginning. Therein lies the problem in the M.E.

    This vid shows all major religions' beginning and expansion paths.

    Ok, but even your own video shows that Christian expansion was in response to Muslim conquest and aggression.

    So, when was the last inquisition? Is it even remotely on the scale of Muslim aggression? I think not.

    It's the same thing. Convert or die. Religion is a tool for these kinds of guys to grab power over others.

    Ok, So nearly 200 years ago....And the practice was outlawed. And this you equate to today and Muslim aggression? How many died during the Inquisitions? I'd bet less than what is going on today with Muslims.

    Nah... 30 years war which was Catholics going after protestants in central Europe. That itself was 7.5 million on the low end.

    Convert or die. Different religion, different time... but same crap.
