RE: The Armenian Genocide Monument. Yerevan September 22

You are viewing a single comment's thread:

The crusades weren't about Christianity and Islam any more than "The Troubles" were caused by Anglicanism and Catholicism. At most it was an excuse to sell political ambitions to the masses. And the modern mess in the middle east is far more a consequence of a century of foreign intervention than it is of Islam. Look at Afghanistan before Soviet intervention, Iran before British intervention, and so forth. I ain't saying it was perfect, but blaming the current situation on "religion" is an incredibly superficial examination of the situation.
