    If all the people in the Middle east were to renounce their religious affiliations, (which, by the way are ancient beliefs and rituals they were raised on and propogated by the clergy), then all the people would be equal and can co-exist and live together happily. Of course they can pratice the religion of the choosing as a spiritual sport just like tennis or basketball..lifts your spirt and makes you feel good, but has nothing todo with their status as eqaul human beings. Great solution to many conflicts and violence in the region and in the world.
