Why do some hate more than others? (D)

Terry Dashner………………………..Faith Fellowship Church in Broken Arrow, OK

In this paper I’m going to bullet nations that hate some nations more than others. Many countries have one or two enemies they have been fighting since ancient times. Why do they continue to fight each other over and over without any measurable results? Why can’t they just call it even and stoprepparttar fighting for good?

Let’s look at this.

•The first bullet highlightsrepparttar 132186 continuing struggle between East and West. The East and West have had awkward relationships sincerepparttar 132187 first century A.D. The West was highly influenced byrepparttar 132188 Roman Catholic Church fromrepparttar 132189 fall of Rome untilrepparttar 132190 Protestant Reformation inrepparttar 132191 16th century. Onrepparttar 132192 other hand,repparttar 132193 East was mostly a hodgepodge of paganism untilrepparttar 132194 7th century. Whenrepparttar 132195 Muslims came out ofrepparttar 132196 deserts of Saudi Arabia to conquerrepparttar 132197 world inrepparttar 132198 name of Allah and had not Charles Martel stopped them atrepparttar 132199 Battle of Tours, I would not be writing aboutrepparttar 132200 conflict betweenrepparttar 132201 East and West. The West would have joinedrepparttar 132202 Asians (by force of course) in surrendering to Islam andrepparttar 132203 Islamic republic. The struggle today betweenrepparttar 132204 two is really not religious but political. Islam can not haverepparttar 132205 world influence it seeks without establishing an Islamic republic inrepparttar 132206 nations it dominates (underrepparttar 132207 guise of a peaceful religion of course).

•The second bullet showcasesrepparttar 132208 Middle East mess. The conflict ofrepparttar 132209 ages will climax in Israel. This is according torepparttar 132210 Bible. I have no reason to doubt that. The hate goes back to ancient Bible days. Abraham had two sons. One wasrepparttar 132211 son of promise—Isaac. The other wasrepparttar 132212 son of Hagar, a handmaid to Abraham’s wife, Sarah. Both rightfully claim Abraham as his father, and that’srepparttar 132213 problem today. The Jews are descended from Isaacrepparttar 132214 son of promise with a promised land called Israel. The Arabs of today are descendents of Ishmael and feel slighted byrepparttar 132215 Jews ostensibly becauserepparttar 132216 Jews have what they think is theirs (and family feuds can get nasty). The struggle and fighting betweenrepparttar 132217 Jews and Arabs will continue untilrepparttar 132218 end ofrepparttar 132219 age. There will be periods of fragile peace, but it will always give way to more fighting eventually. (I say this because of my Bible beliefs.)

•The third bullet highlights some ofrepparttar 132220 ancient eastern cultures that were not given national boundaries when Europe and her allies carved out a world map afterrepparttar 132221 First World War. If you remember your history, President Wilson put togetherrepparttar 132222 League of Nations which was, in some ways, a forerunner torepparttar 132223 United Nations. Althoughrepparttar 132224 US Senate would not ratify Wilson’s League of Nations,repparttar 132225 powers that wonrepparttar 132226 war went ahead and carved uprepparttar 132227 old Ottoman Empire. Nations like Turkey, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and etc., became boundaries of sovereign nations. There was one problem withrepparttar 132228 drawing up of nations. Some ancient cultures likerepparttar 132229 Kurds got nothing. The Kurds found themselves strewn across several new countries without a voice. That’s why people from Pakistan haterepparttar 132230 Kurds, simply becauserepparttar 132231 Kurds hate them.

•The forth bullet marksrepparttar 132232 fall of English and French colonialism in Asia and Africa inrepparttar 132233 19th and 20th centuries. When they pulled out of various nations becauserepparttar 132234 nation’s minerals and other natural resources were exhausted, a vacuum was created inrepparttar 132235 nations they left behind. Because ofrepparttar 132236 poverty, anarchy, and political corruption that followed, many of these nations started killing each other simply because there was no order or control. Some became wars of genocide. Some became wars of ethnic cleansings. Some became wars for political control. But all were and still are violent, having murdered millions of civilians throughoutrepparttar 132237 decades.

International Dating – When Love Really Means Going the Distance!

Written by Angela Davis

In today’s society,repparttar world really is getting smaller. As we leap from one technological breakthrough torepparttar 132183 next, we find that within micro-seconds we can transfer information from one side ofrepparttar 132184 earth torepparttar 132185 other. We can live on one continent and be employed by a company on another. Air-travel means that many people are part of a global workforce that commutes aroundrepparttar 132186 globe attending meetings in every international outpost ofrepparttar 132187 company.

This minimizingrepparttar 132188 world is filtering slowly down throughrepparttar 132189 professional world, and into our personal lives. No longer are we ofrepparttar 132190 mind set that we will one day grow up and marryrepparttar 132191 boy next door. It happens, but it’s just as likely to marryrepparttar 132192 boy inrepparttar 132193 next State, or next country …….orrepparttar 132194 one who lives onrepparttar 132195 other side ofrepparttar 132196 world. The Internet is probablyrepparttar 132197 biggest influencing factor on current day international dating.

Throughout history there have been mail-order brides. Fromrepparttar 132198 women who were sent torepparttar 132199 colonies, torepparttar 132200 women who answered small ads from ranchers out west, and more recently,repparttar 132201 Russian (and I’m sure other nationalities) who place ads of their own looking for a partner outside of their homelands. Despite this history, finding a mate through some form of media has maintained a “desperate” image – as ifrepparttar 132202 person seeking is unable to find someone to have them locally. The Internet, even with its reputation for “adult” sites has somehow managed to remove some ofrepparttar 132203 stigma, and there is now a healthy and steadily growing international dating scene.

The big question is always “Can international dating lead to anything permanent”? The answer to this is a resounding YES! Many people are prepared to take a chance on love, and move themselves and their lives to be closer to their overseas loved one. Those who do this find that they are suddenly face-to-face on a daily basis withrepparttar 132204 name they’ve been typing too for a period of time, learning how to co-habit with someone who is physically a stranger, whilst atrepparttar 132205 same time learning how to handle living in a new country. By farrepparttar 132206 worst of this is being removed from family, and takingrepparttar 132207 place of communicating with your partner online, you now spend your time communicating with your family online instead!
