    How blind are you to blame the Koran for issuing a "'divine obligation to destroy neighboring (non-Muslim) Israel. where Jews are no longer dhimmis but are free to rule themselves'? Zionism may have started as a predominantly secular political movement, but in reality the religious claims to the 'promised land' have been fueling the settlement of 'Samaria and Judea', as they call the West Bank, using biblical names. A divine obligation to dispossess Palestinians of their ancestral lands, to destroy the development of a Palestinian state for the sake of reclaiming Eretz Ysrael, where the native population are 'dhimmis' at best and not free to rule themselves' -- this is what Zionism has been, and still is, establishing as the facts on the ground, and the social and political reality. So now you blame the Koran for the conflict, when expelling and killing Palestinians was the prize to be paid for establishing Israel, and is all but a religious imperative for the radical settlers on the WB, who are well represented in the IDF and government? That is the 'true force behind the hate and propaganda Jihadist machine against Jews in the Muslim world': the Zionist hate and propaganda machine against Arabs and Muslims in the Muslim world. Neither Muslim terrorism nor Jihadism existed before the Zionist colonial project, backed by US imperialism and evangelism.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
