UPDATED: The "Locals" vs the "Crusaders"
UPDATE: March 17, 2017 US Hellfire Missile strikes Syrian Mosque - dozens of civilian casualties. The Crusade is on.
The Crusades During the Medieval Era
Following up on my previous post below, I was thinking about the Trump Administration's alleged "reset" of the USrael Middle East Policy. This re-set involves putting "US boots on the ground" and attempting to gather up the support of the "locals" in achieving their various "regime change" goals in Yemen, Syria, Iran, etc. There was something about this plan that was at the same time vaguely familiar and vaguely disturbing.
Then, I read a few posts on other blogs today including this one...about a "future civil war in Islam". The theory suggested that the US is attempting to sow bloody chaos throughout the Middle East in the hopes that the various religious sects will turn on, and then destroy one another in a civil war. But, remembering Assad's oft stated insistence that Syria is a "secular" state in which the religions do not play a political role...at least up until the Atlantacists embedded their terrorist jihadi proxies in it...I wondered how this would work in, say, Syria.
Finally, I remembered why the new Trump policy (as stated in the links provided in my previous post) was familiar and yet disturbing. Why, it's nothing less than a Crusade! THAT's why Assad so deliberately used the word "invaders" to describe the uninvited militaries currently present on sovereign Syrian soil. I believe the words "invaders" and "Crusaders" are interchangeable in Arabic.
In any case...Syrian President Dr. Bashar al Assad has a bombshell of a word to use at his discretion. In his next interview, were he to refer to the American troops as "Crusaders"...he would instantly put the kibosh to any hope USrael might have in garnering the loyalty or support of the "locals"... because... If there's one unifying concept that is agreed upon and embedded in the DNA of the entire Middle East population (with the notable exception of the tiny, borderless entity) it is a mortal fear and loathing of "Crusaders".
