Israel is reputedly the holy land of the palestinians and therefore She will be fought for by the Palestinians and supported by other arab nations until the Israeli Jews (and other ethnicities) leave Her altogether.
In this way the palestinians justify a "holy war" or "Jihad" against Israel and her citizens, claiming She is rightfully theirs by religious right. This is their so called "holy land" remember.
Eygpt, Syria, and Saudi arabia, as well as the other arab nations support the Palestinians and their methods of terrorism to "drive the infidel out of their holy lands." However She does not seem to be a unique arab holy land in the middle east. In fact the truth is that every Arab country is considered their "holy land." According to Bin Ladin, Saudi Arabia is the holiest spiritual land on this earth. According to the Palestinians it is Israel. Iraq cite Kuwait as a holy land. Afghanistan is a holy land for the Taliban
I propose that this veil of religiousity is nothing more than an excuse for terrorism and a conspiracy to drive every westernized and indeed democratic nation out of the middle east region which they clearly veiw as an "arabs only" zone. The west, are constantly accused of racism against muslims; Is the total expulsion/ eradication of every non-arab in the middle east not slightly racsist? How many "holy lands" can one religion have? As i see it Islam is fundamentally one religion; cleverly manipulated by arab dictators to further their own cause; that of total control of the middle eastern region.
And so the Americans hit back. At a time of turmoil and instability in the region just one country has the balls to usurp an evil dictator and free a country from a reign of terror, whilst the UN and the world stands by in indignation complaining that it's about oil.
This is not about oil, just as the cold war was not about oil. The USA plays with spheres of influence, and like any democratic superpower has outlets around the world from which to base her ideology. Call it economic imperialism if you will, even ideological imperialism… But I believe it is borne from the inherent need to see a world in her own eyes, a democratic world. America would need to pump oil for over 5 years to recoup her financial loss from the war, notwithstanding the valiant men who have fallen whilst doing their jobs.
You may think that they invaded a country, but most Iraqi's I have met are exstatic that the country is free of Saddam; their only reservation being that we may pull out before safetly is established. Which is what the Americans would do if the rest of the world had their way…
