A Lack of Respect and An Insult to God

The history looks like a kind of repeating itself.

But it is alarming that the mankind have lost respect to their history and ancient legacies.  Due to a lack of respect to their own history, the mankind might get caught in a great crisis.

The first urban civilization started in Mesopotamia.  But the US launched the War on Iraq in 2003 in the wake of the 2001 Terror on New York and Washington DC, sending troops to the region including Mesopotamia to topple the Saddam Hussein's regime.  The US also sent troops to Afghanistan where once Alexander the Great marched in his most eastward campaign of conquer.  And, subsequently Syria was put in turmoils of a civil war when the US started to withdraw its troops from Iraq.  Syria and its capital Damascus were once occupied by the Roman Empire.  Syria has a long history even from the era of conflicts between Greeks and Persians.

These historically important regions have been key regions of today's international tragedies in these years.  And they have become sources of millions of immigrants and refugees.

As the US and its allied nations have not fully respected the past history, bloody tragedies have ensued there with the rise of an evil group called IS or ISIL.  If this trend should continue, Western Europe might face another tragedy, since the region was once occupied by the Roman Empire.

However, the more decisive tragedy can happen in Israel if it should face a critical turmoil or war in this context.  It means all the historic regions of the ancient period for the European Civilization in the west of the Indus River suffer tragedies, since the mankind do not respect the history.

So, before such a tragedy happens in Israel or Palestine, we have to show more respect to the history.  Otherwise, the more drastic bloody situation might happen in and around Israel, which should involve the US and Russia in a very dangerous manner.

Anyway, about 2000 years ago, the current border area between Syria and Turkey was one of the most active areas for ancient Greek and Roman troops against Persia and other Asian opponents.  And still today, there are many bloody military operations in the area.  Then what is the progress of the mankind along the history?  Where is the progress of the mankind along the history?

God might look at these situations as an insult to Him, since He had given great religions to the mankind and especially Europeans in those regions.  God might judge that the mankind should perish due to wars in those areas since they cannot save themselves by leveraging the religions they received there from the God.

In this context, the situations in Syria and Iraq might lead to a real crisis of the mankind and especially Europeans as well as Americans and Judaists.

Luk 1:3 It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus,
Luk 1:4 That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed.
