Are we in for another War of 250 Years?
The London bombings of 2005 has highlighted one aspect of the so called 'War on Terror'.

The Middle East generated most of the theologies of the Western World. The differences at the core of these philosophies is being played out each day as news of more and more killings in horrifying and vivid detail reaches into our homes.

unto the people that which is theirs and render to God only that which
is His and Get the Hell out of the Middle East or we
might find that we have embarked on yet another 250 year Crusade.
