I read an article in CNN regarding the Easter message from Pope. The Pope addressed the sufferings in Middle East, Africa and Asia. I don't understand what's his point is? He blamed religion for all the death, but he forgot to name what religion it is?
In my view, if not for Abraham, the entire world would have been a better place. The struggle between the so called brothers has caused so much blood, so much hatred that things are unbearable.
The Greeks, Romans, Persians, Indians, Chinese, all had great culture. The drive by Christianity (Europeans) has demolished every culture in the name of God. Not to be left behind the Muslims matched them act to act.
It would be better if the Pope address the issue head on. Tell the world that Christians are the reason for the suffering. He should act on the source of suffering. May be he wants everyone to convert to Christianity thus everyone can live in harmony.
Until I came to the States, I did not know how powerful the religious groups are. The only reason Bush won the second term in spite of all the suffering in the middle east is because of conservatives, who vote based on their religion namely Christianity. People here in the states see this conflict as a fight between Christians and Muslim, the same way people in the Middle East see.
I do not see an end to this conflict. May be the so called western power will split Iraq into three parts and come out. Then they will start their infighting and doom themselves.
