How would you know ? Have you actual lived anywhere in the Middle East ? I'm guessing not so don't make assumptions out of the blue like that

It's not an assumption, it's a fact. Read the news. There are suicide bombings, car bombings and attacks on civilians all the time. Particularly in Baghdad.

They're all from the last couple of months, and there are plenty more even for that period alone. It took me all of two minutes to find out that there have been 111,000 - 121,000 civilian deaths as a result of violence in Iraq since 2003. There were over 4,500 last year. How about next time do your research or at least back up your claims with some form of evidence before calling other people out?

Well, Iraqis can stop killing fellow Iraqis, and Muslims can stop killing fellow Muslims, despite sectarian differences.

Well Iraq isn't an entirely Muslim country, or at least it wasn't before the war. It is headed in that direction though.

So is Syria, thanks to the western backed uprising.

Lol How about I don't waste two minutes of my time looking for facts online to show you when I already know first hand since I've spent my childhood in the Middle East. I took a trip down there with my family just last year for 4 whole months and guess what? I'm still here not a bruise on me. You can't just assume its a hellhole down there and just as you step out of your home your looking over your shoulder for landmines ahahah. Don't get me wrong explosions and bomb blasts have happened in the PAST but they rarely occur nowadays and although Iraq/Afghanistan aren't the best places to live they're perfectly fine. Don't believe everything you see/hear especially about the Middle East out biggest problem now is poverty imo.

It's interesting, there were many charismatic exorcists and miracle workers, healers, sages and holy men around in this era of Jesus. He just happened to be the Wayne Gretzky of his calling.. Two others of note were Apollonius of Tyana and Paul of Tarsus. The link included provides a table comparing the careers of these three contemporaries. That Jesus' legend and works should live on for two thousand years is quite impressive.

Table comparing the lives and works of Apollonius, Jesus, and Paul. Interesting stuff:

Ok so I should have put it a little clearer, but my main reply was to your original comment saying "people can't go OUT without getting BLOWN to peices" now where does that thought even stem from ? Watching too much news? Hearing about explosions happening every couple days, weeks or months? I mean you made it sound like a person anywhere in Afghanistan/Iraq cannot outrightly take step outside their house without looking over their shoulder. Posting comments like that is just damaging their image even more then what it already is. I mean I'm from Afghanistan and I've experienced the goods and bass over there I have family their whom my parents keep in touch with so I would know alittle bit more then the media. If you had made the same remarks 10-13 years ago I would have said your absolutely right but the explosions and what not have died down since what happened after 9/11.

And I shouldn't have said it was "perfectly fine" which it is not but at the same time it's not a war zone like you had made it out to be, we'll it isn't now for sure.
