The Parties of God

Battle in Beirut, Lebanon

Behind the growing chaos in the Middle East, is the determination to achieve a state under God, the battle between Islam and Jews, each defending their presence in the region. When political aspirations are linked to religious doctrine, the result, inevitably, is an interminable war that cannot be negotiated. Tragically, the parties of God, dictated by rigid policy sent down from the heavens, have no means to legislate their differences – violence and chaos is the final judgment.
