Oh, I don't know... isn't there supposed to be peace in the Middle East right before Armageddon? We should probably hope for the endless conflict to continue for at least another couple of generations.

LOL. Another day, another dollar, and another thread where muslims are being depicted as backward fanatics who want to blow things up. That's the whole range of your ''wisdom'' displayed here Belgarion? Not too convincing, not too convincing.

for starters, get rid of salafists, let multiple segments of society express their opinions, share the wealth, attract more economic opportunities and build up good school systems.

Or in the case of Arabia I guess we can just wait till the oil runs out and it becomes near enough uninhabited again.

its stupid to think the main reason is religious, nobody in turkey judges someone for his/her religion and live together, it is pretty similar in other middle east countries.

Pagan, Christian, Zoroastrian, and even a very small number of Jews who came down to trade.

Yes it was. And that goes against the idea of religion as the main cause of war in the region, and certainlly is not the fault of Islam. The ME was a warlike area since the beginning of history.

Well all regions of the world were war-like areas in ancient times. The reason that the ME is still like that today is mainly becuase of the pedophile terrorist from mecca.
