Corrupt Government Officials – Many of Whom Are Atheists – Use the Most Extreme Forms of Religion to Divide and Conquer Us
Fundamentalist Muslims, Christians and Jews all think they are in a “holy war” against the other guy.
They assume that Christianity, Judaism and Islam are mortal enemies. As such, they assume that Saudi Arabia (the seat of most fundamentalist school of Islam) fights for Islam, Israel for Judaism and the U.S. (which has the most Christians of any country in the world) for Christianity … or religious tolerance.
They’re being played.
Radical Islamic Syrian “rebels” have allegedly offered to “trade” the Golan Heights to Israel … in exchange for military aid.
The Saudis – along with the Israelis – say that Arabs are not ready for democracy.
Israel has also repeatedly been caught impersonating Muslim extremists. For example, Israel admits that an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including U.S. diplomatic facilities, then left behind “evidence” implicating the Arabs as the culprits (one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to identify the bombers, and several of the Israelis later confessed) (and see this and this).
NBC News reports that Israel backed a Muslim fundamentalist terror group against Iran.
The Sunday Times reported that Saudi Arabia has tested the ability to stand down its air defenses to allow an Israeli strike on Iran to pass through its airspace. After the Arab Spring, Israel views the Saudi government as “guarantor of stability”, according to the New York Times. In 2011, Israel approved a German sale of 200 Leopard tanks to Saudi Arabia. The approval came from Uzi Arad, the national security advisor to Benjamin Netanyahu.
And the U.S. has long backed Saudi Arabia … and the Madrassa schools within Saudi Arabia which teach radical, violent Wahabi beliefs.
The Washington Post reported in 2002:
The United States spent millions of dollars to supply Afghan schoolchildren with textbooks filled with violent images and militant Islamic teachings ….
The primers, which were filled with talk of jihad and featured drawings of guns, bullets, soldiers and mines, have served since then as the Afghan school system’s core curriculum. Even the Taliban used the American-produced books ….
The Council on Foreign Relations notes:
The 9/11 Commission report (PDF) released in 2004 said some of Pakistan’s religious schools or madrassas served as “incubators for violent extremism.” Since then, there has been much debate over madrassas and their connection to militancy.
New madrassas sprouted, funded and supported by Saudi Arabia and U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, where students were encouraged to join the Afghan resistance.
And see this.
The U.S. also directly arms, funds and otherwise supports the most violent fundamentalist Muslim terrorists – including Al Qaeda – against the more moderate Muslims and secular Arabs. Indeed, the U.S. backs Islamic terrorists who are persecuting Christians and Jews.
Yet the U.S. not only strongly supports Israel, but many of the most fundamentalist American Christians support the most fundamentalist, hard-line, radical Israeli Jews. And the Israeli government supports the Christian fundamentalists.
These 3 countries – centers of 3 different religions – are also all fighting on the same side in various wars. For example, the U.S., Saudi Arabia and Israel are all fighting against the Syrian government, and backing Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood. (Indeed, the New York Times reported that virtually all of the rebel fighters are Al Qaeda terrorists.)
In reality, corrupt government officials – many of whom are atheists – are using the most extreme forms of religion to divide and conquer us … while they are working together with “enemies” from the “opposing” team.
