Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

One is a globalized ideology adhered to explicitly by Zionist Jews and Protestants and explicitly and illicitly by Western world powers manifesting in a localized phenomenon ending in World War III.

The other is a gloablized ideology adhered to explicitly by radicalized Mohammedans and illicitly by some non-radicalized Mohammedans with overt support from some Mohammedan governments and covert support from Western world powers (when it suits their other objectives--of which defeating communism was but a phase of underiming Russian influence begun by Western support for the Ottomans in the 19th century and continued today by supporting Syrian rebels), manifesting in a globalized phenomenon with distinct local challenges, eding in World War III.

The good thing is that both these things play together, so there really isn't a choice as to which is better than the other.

Ah, the Kang or Kodos "choice." Either way, humanity ends up enslaved only to build a ray gun to clear a better view of Uranus.

Zionism obviously. Supporting one tiny little evil country seems a lot better to me than allowing the entire world to become built on Shariah Law.

Seeing as the Zionists would seem to be far less likely than the Islamists to saw my head off for failing to convert to their point of view, I'd choose the Zionists every time, but I'd rather not have to make the choice.

If I take Zionism, can I go with historical (secular) Zionism? Wink Any of its forms, minus Socialism, would do.

You can't have Zionism without getting Islamism thrown in, so I'll go for Islamism.

Zionism has ostensible geographic limits so I'd probably go with that.

What do you mean? No Talmud without Muhammad?  Roll Eyes

The Zionism of Herzl is an atheistic nationalist movement and has nothing to do with the Talmud. Balfour, who granted the Zionists land in Palestine, was a rabid anti-Semite who favoured Zionism because he believed Jews could not live among Gentiles and that giving them their own state would be the best way to get rid of them. Zionism necessarily leads to Islamism because it involves the displacement and humiliation of an entire nation, most of whom are Muslim, in a land considered sacred to Muslims worldwide. The Israel-Palestine conflict has been at the centre of the Islamist cause and major recruiting ground.

So, you could easily have Islamism without Zionism, but you couldn't have Zionism without provoking Islamist sentiments. So if you pick Zionism you pick both.

This is debatable because Islamism precedes Zionism by many centuries. Muhammad theologically "invaded" the land of Israel even when the Jews had neither a state nor a temple there. Thus, it is possible to say that Islamism led to Zionism because most of the Philistines became Muslims and wanted to get Jerusalem.
