The West has not had an easy time in subduing the East. To say otherwise is to deny the evidence of history . For the West to imagine it can impose its own values on the East is a grave miscalculation. For the East to imagine that the hot-headed zealotry of its warriors can intimidate the West is a fairy tale.
Unless the West accepts the East's right to determine its own future, the bloodshed that currently marks this contest between the superpowers, using Syria as a battle ground, will continue.
Isn’t it about time that the priests, mullahs and rabbis cooperate by pulling all their resources together in order to promote peace and harmony and put an end to violence and hatred?
