April 21 2018 By dvirtue The religious roads leading inexorably to a Syrian apocalypse

Because the jihadists know we are suckers who can be drawn in with a few video clips and an amateur production of Lawrence of Arabia. Because naïve infidels like us who sanitise religion from the public square are supremely unaware of the Islamic theology of the end times and hardly know the score that the crisis in Syria is fuelled by the expectation of an apocalyptic countdown to Allah's Armageddon.
