* no - i am mentioning some important historical milestones which did alter and inflame the relationships that currently existed in the area. prior to the creation of the state of israel there was "relative" peace between jews and muslims in the area. divide and conquer strategies ALWAYS involve inflaming differences. i am not disagreeing with you at all about the powderkeg that exists when religions revolve around chosen-ist competitive conquering mentalities. i am saying that there was a match that was lit to explode the region and that match was lit by european/u.s. imperialist motives.
