Are you not contradicitng yourself?
Hey. Let's drop it. How come you still don't get my point? If you read my posts carefully you'll know what I mean. I'm losing faith in the honesty of your intentions. It really wasn't my point to take a pot shot at you - I just don't blame religion for everything because it takes us nowhere.
Here is my point again and for the last time. Either you get it or forget it.
The creation of the state of Israel was a political decision. There might have been some Zionism to it, but the Palestinian resistance would have been the same if there had been no idealogy. The sending of settlers to the west bank of the Jordan is a political step as well. It is aggravateing the Israeli-Paletinian situation.
The religious mess is a spin-off. Religion was used as a catalyst. Palestinian suicide bombers are indoctrinated with it and so are fundamentalist Jewish settlers.
However there had been Jews and Arabs in the region before Israel was created as a state. THe situation was much more peaceful despite the religious differences.
What is the real reason for this mess? The religious differences or the creation of Israel? Of course as it is now whole generations have been brought up in religious hatred. But the original reasons were political ones. And the only possible solutions are ones which address the political dimension of the problem.
Don't you know any stable multi-religious societies? I think they are much more common than religious war sistuations. WHy? Because there are no political reasons to start war.
