Rockets and Revenge

I've been watching a series of reports on Vice called "Rockets and Revenge" by reporter Danny Gold. In the series he spends time in Gaza and in Israel and does his best to present both sides in an unvarnished manner.

What I have learned from watching the series is that religion is evil, evil, evil.

On the one side of the conflict we have a religious group that lays claim to all the land because their God told them it was all theirs and that is recorded in their religious texts written thousands of years ago. On the other side of the conflict we have a religious group that lived on that land for generations before being exiled to set up a country defined by the UN.

The one constant you will hear from BOTH sides is that "God is with us." This actually does happen to be the exact same God of Abraham that both parties are claiming BTW. Not two different gods. Both sides claim it is God's will that they do what they do. It is sickening to hear so many atrocities being committed and people absolving themselves of those atrocities because it is "God's will."

Here is a link to the latest installment. I suggest watching the whole series.
