Yes they are a problem since they never accepted the presence of the Jews in that region

things were bad way before 1948. it all started in the 19th century

looks like the Muslim Arabs are not so much in favor of multiculturalism but now they demand it in the western countries

ZN, I'm sorry but you're talking shite. Jews lived in Syria and Palestine before European colonization, along with other groups. Syria is a multi-religion state and it's your government, along with others that were in the process of destroying that co-existence, in favour of Salafi jihadists taking control.

As for multiculturalism in Palestine, let me guess, who's been destroying that in favour of privileging ONE group? :excited:

Regime changed worked well in Germany, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Grenada, Panama and Iraq. Iraq's had huge economic growth, and democracy. Iraq has made a significant contribution to defeating the Sunni Arab terrorists in Syria. Central Iraq has seen amazing stabilisation as huge numbers of Sunni Arab terrorists and Sunni Arab terrorist supporters have chosen to leave. The great thing is that the Shia militias can talk to the Sunni Arabs in the language that they can understand.

Oh please, Rich! Don't insult your intelligence. A hard-core racist like you isn't going to claim that Germany is a tribal society like Syria or that Japan is like Afghanistan. If you make up an argument, you should at least try to believe in it. Your argument is not credible and you don't believe in it yourself.

If we were writing the year of 1619 and not 2019, then yes, your argument might hold, because the US could have incited hatred of the Protestants against the Catholics, or vice-versa. Or the US could have armed Bavaria to fight Saxony, or vice versa. Yes, that would have worked, but it would not have worked 4 centuries later.

Iraq has been in constant turmoil since the US illegally removed its government together with its civil and military administration. The US is in violation of the Geneva convention because it has not taken care of the administration of occupied territory. Instead it let the country descend into chaos and permanent civil war. Since your country has destabilized the ME with its imperialistic greed, Iraqis have had no peace. There are nearly a million killed, nearly 20 million displaced in the region and many more who live in precarious conditions in constant fear and insecurity. And all of that only because of the perfidious Albion.

The region will never find any peace until Shiites together with Iran and Russia drive the Americans and Brits out.

US military aircraft crashes near Syrian border
A US military aircraft has crashed in western Iraq, the military has confirmed, according to Reuters. Other reports indicate that up to seven people may have perished in the crash.

US Central Command (CENTCOM) has confirmed the fact of the crash and the presence of US military personnel on board the aircraft. “Rescue teams are responding to the scene of the downed aircraft at this time,” it said in a statement, adding that no more details were available at the time.

Local sources, cited by Lebanese-based TV network Al Mayadeen, report the aircraft was a Chinook transport helicopter carrying ammunition. It crashed in western Iraq near the border of Syria. Seven crew members were reportedly killed in the crash. The helicopter is believed to have caught fire after it hit the ground, due to the volatile nature of its cargo. ... an-border/

Russia says U.S. plans to strike Damascus, pledges military response
Russia said on Tuesday it had information that the United States planned to bomb the government quarter in Damascus on an invented pretext, and said it would respond militarily if it felt Russian lives were threatened by such an attack.

Valery Gerasimov, head of Russia’s General Staff, said Moscow had information that rebels in the enclave of eastern Ghouta were planning to fake a chemical weapons attack against civilians and blame it on the Syrian army.

He said the United States intended to use the fake attack as a pretext to bomb the government quarter in nearby Damascus where he said Russian military advisers, Russian military police and Russian ceasefire monitors were based.

“In the event of a threat to the lives of our servicemen, Russia’s armed forces will take retaliatory measures against the missiles and launchers used,” Gerasimov said in a statement. ... y-response

The MSM isn't reporting it because it would implicate their moderate rebels using chemical weapons to attack civilians in Aleppo that time that happened, which they framed the SAA/govt with. The MSM doesn't report the gains by the SAA either vis-a-vis taking control of East Ghouta. The same happened in other parts of Syria when the army got territory back.

Also Shamine Narwani has done a lot of really good journalism inside and out of Syria since the beginning of this so-called conflict. 8)
