    The US quagmire in Iraq and Afghanistan, and troubles with Iran, and particularly Pakistan all stem from the limitless inspiration Islamic mullahs, imams, and ayatollahs effortlessly whip up by pointing at the sheer spectacle of US funding of Israeli land grab and oppression in their occupation of Palestine. This partnership is caricatured in the Arab world as "The Great Satan" in cahoots with "The Little Satan", a partnership universally painful and humiliating particularly in Middle Eastern society, and utterly corrosive and debilitating to US efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan. So an irresistable force, America, has met an immovable object, Islam, and the result is unholy war in Iraq and Afghanistan; spread globally by jihadist terrorists, WHO FIND THEIR PRIME INSPIRATION IN THE PALESTINIAN CONFLICT. The only way out is the Saudi Peace Plan, now accepted as the standard for peace. The whole world understands, and is united on this.
