Thought the US lead intervention would turn Iraq back to that pre-1970's secular era, but it seems the intervention only exacerbated the problem:Until the 1970s nearly all Iraq's political organisations were secular, attracting people from all religions and none. The dividing lines were sharply political, mostly based on social class and political orientation. The growth of religious parties followed Saddam's ruthless elimination of all political entities other than the Ba'ath party. Places of worship became centres of political agitation and organisation.
References:The most serious sectarian and ethnic tensions in Iraq's modern history followed the 2003 US-led occupation, which faced massive popular opposition and resistance. The US had its own divide-and-rule policy, promoting Iraqi organisations founded on religion, ethnicity, nationality or sect rather than politics. Many senior officers in the newly formed Iraqi army came from these organisations and Saddam's army. This was exacerbated three years ago, when sectarian groups in Syria were backed by the US, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar

Left wing antisemitism is on a par with neo-Nazi and white nationalist antisemtism, so no suprises here. As for 'neutrality', it's just another euphemism for supporting genocide against Israeli Jews and Christians both. The 'neutrality' meme isn't even remotely neutral re real life consequences.
At what point did history become ethics? Why should we subvert the elusive search for facts to moralist concerns? If you want to be a preacher, go preach. If you want to save the world, go into politics. If you want to invent a world free of evil, take Prozac. -Dave Williams, George Mason Univ.

According to Muslim Obama they are not Christians but Egyptians and ISIS is only a "JUNIOR VARSITY club and Yemen will never let ISIS in.
Ever wonder why ISIS is doing everything possible to get us involved on the ground?
Sure wish the last president was like that. We'd be a trillion dollars richer and there wouldn't be an ISIS. And of course a lot of people would still be among the living.
No worries he'll probably cave and you war mongers will get what you want. Just be careful what you ask for.
