, deserts and arid climates do not allow big populations so that since antiquity, after men invented agriculture and cities, in middle-east, urban and village farming populations have been more numerous than nomadic peoples.
In a desert's oasis, most of the peoples are sedentary,as relying on cultivation or hand crafts, only merchants can be called nomadic.
The nomadic peoples had opportunity to rise and have transportation means, horses, camels, a strategic superiority.
You should try to learn ecology and study ecosystems, that would make you little more clever and avoid writing scilly things about nomadic and sedentary peoples.
That's one of the reasons why Arabs left the peninsula to conquer the Middle east: to escape the arid desert and find a better environment. Their new religion was a powerful tool for them to achieve that, just like Christianity had served the European colonial countries.

Apart from the coastline and the South of the peninsula, most was completely desert and unfit for permanent inhabitation in the 7th century. There was no technology to sustain life in those days, and many caravans disappeared, swallowed by the desert sand.
Maybe you should read about it before attempting to lecture me on the subject. That would make you a little bit more knowledgeable about Arabia and avoid you to make silly statements.

After all, the Empty Quarters are reputed to have been successfully crossed for the first time form recorded memory only early last century.

In Palestine, only a few coastal towns existed, and the same alongside the Jordan river. The Arabs weren't sedentary in their majority, they kept moving according to the seasons, if only because their herds needed regularly new pastures to graze, and their economy was based on camels, sheep and goats.

As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness.

At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs [Europe, Australia, USA and Japan]. Six percent of US prison inmates are Muslim. Like any other minority, they won’t integrate, but work to build their own separate community.

From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. South Africa's Muslim population is 2%, but they control 35% of the businesses, a large percentage of the banks and have five Cabinet seats while Christians (77% of the population) have none.

They will push for the introduction of halaal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves (along with threats for failure to comply).

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia; Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world, but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions.(Ei: car-burnings in France last October.) Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats.

After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning (India, Mindanao, Philippines).

At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare [Indonesia].

From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya (infidel tax).(Sudan, Kosovo, Lebanon and Egypt).

After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide [Western Papua (New Guinea), Iran, Biafra, Turkey and North Nigeria].

100% will usher in the peace of "Dar-es-Salaam" - House of Peace - as in Saudi Arabia, Libya and Yemen.

On November 18, the Palestinian propaganda outlet, Ma’an News Agency, reported that Israel had cut power to the West Bank town of Jericho due to unpaid electric bills. Palestinian officials in the affected area appealed to Palestinian Authority strongman Mahmoud Abbas to pay the arrears of nearly $200,000. Failure to do so they added, would affect irrigation systems and cause irreparable damage to agricultural lands.

But as the Palestinians have demonstrated time and again, their budgetary priorities lie perniciously elsewhere. While Palestinians were starved of electricity due to the malfeasance of their own government, the Palestinian Authority was busy doling out cash, care of the U.S. taxpayer, to terrorists recently freed by Israel as a result of pressure from U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.




On November 18, the Times of Israel reported that 26 terrorists recently released by Israel and convicted of particularly ghoulish crimes were given lump sums of at least $50,000 a piece and cushy civil service jobs within the Palestinian Authority. Some were given lump sums of $60,000. That translates to over $1,300,000 — more than six times the amount needed to restore electricity to those without power in Jericho. To the Holocaust-denying, fascist-admiring Abbas, critical infrastructure plays second fiddle to funding terrorism.

In reality, however, it is the U.S. State Department that plays a central role in facilitating Palestinian Authority terrorism. A lawsuit by an Israeli civil rights group on behalf of Americans killed or injured by Palestinians alleges that the State Department is violating its own laws in failing to properly exercise minimal oversight over vast sums doled out to the Palestinian Authority and related Palestinian entities. As a result, money is being diverted to fund, directly and indirectly, Palestinian terrorism directed against Israelis and U.S. citizens. The clearest example of this is the way the Palestinian Authority uses foreign aid money to incentivize terrorism at the expense of basic infrastructure, the Jericho electricity crisis being the latest example.

An excellent article by Michael Dickson highlights the way the Palestinian Authority is utilizing every asset at its disposal to demonize Jews and Israel. In every sphere, from health and education to sport and the arts, the Palestinian Authority has engaged in systematic vitriol whose rhetoric is matched only by the likes of Joseph Goebbels.

It is unsurprising, therefore, that Palestinian terrorism continues unabated. From the horrific stabbing of a sleeping bus passenger to the firebombing of a couple on a routine drive, the violence has stretched the bounds of depravity, even by Palestinian standards.

The uptick in violence can also be attributed to John Kerry, who recently parroted the Palestinian Authority’s talking points lock, stock and barrel, while ignoring continued Palestinian incitement, among other malevolent transgressions. Kerry essentially torpedoed his own peace initiative by providing the Palestinian Authority political cover to harden its already unreasonable and unrealistic demands, which include, among other things, flooding Israel with millions of hostile Arab “refugees” and placing Israel’s ancestral capital under Muslim rule. Considering past Arab pronouncements (in Arabic to Arab audiences) it appears that these extreme positions are merely the first stage in a multi-staged approach to dealing with the hated “Zionist entity.”

Jericho’s electricity problems are symptomatic of a diseased and depraved Palestinian culture, one consumed by hate and a desire to obliterate another people. The sooner we come to terms with this fact and address the issue in an honest manner, unhampered by the doctrine of political correctness, the sooner a resolution to the Palestinian problem can be found.

Muhammad said: "Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him" (Bukhari 9.84.57). The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law according to all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence. So Joseph's father was just being pious, you greasy Islamophobe.
"Imam embraces Christianity," from Pravoslavie, November 15 (thanks to Filip):
The Linga portal with the reference to the Spanish radio station &#1057;adena &#1057;ope tells about the joys and tragedies of a young man who turned to Christianity from Islam.
Mario Joseph was born in an ordinary Muslim Indian family. His father prepared him—the third among six brothers—as a spiritual leader: thus, aged 10, Mario entered a Koranic school, and when he returned from it at the age of 18, he became an Imam-khatib in a local village Mosque.
However, the young man turned to Christ, and this choice made him a target even for his own father who, having known about his son's conversion to another faith, threatened to kill him. Moreover, his father erected a gravestone in advance in a local Muslim cemetery with the epitaph containing the young man’s name and date of birth.
The Spanish radio station &#1057;adena &#1057;ope managed to talk with this young Catholic preacher and learn certain facts from the history of his tremendous trials.
"From age 18, I was an imam and regularly delivered sermons,” begins Joseph.“One Friday I was fervently talking about Isa al-Masih [Jesus the Messiah], saying that He was not Allah. When I finished my speech, someone asked me: "But, after all, who is the Messiah?" On that day I could not find a proper answer; my knowledge in this sphere was extremely poor".
Again and again Mario returned to the Koran, to the Muslim Holy Tradition (the Sunna), to various commentaries of the exegetes of authority, but could not find the answer. To the contrary, he noticed instead that the only woman's name mentioned in the Koran, was the Name of the Most Holy Mary; moreover, according to tradition Muhammad died, while Isa was taken to Heaven alive. "Then, after long thought, I decided to leave the dead one and to follow the Living one," explained the young man.
According to Mario, the choice was not an easy one: "Before making the final decision, I besought the Lord for a long time to give me true guidance... Once, still hesitating, I opened the Koran, and I came across the following ayah (inexact translation): "If you doubt what we granted to you, then ask those who read the Scriptures before you. The Truth from your Lord has come to you; so do not be among those hesitant!" Then I started reading the Bible, and upon its completion I was absolutely convinced of truthfulness of the Christian Scriptures; and at last found my God-Redeemer!"
Knowing that apostasy in the Muslim law is punished by the death penalty, Joseph ran away from his home to the nearest Catholic educational center.
However, the father found the young man, and after beating him violently, he locked him naked, bound hand and foot, without food, in one of the rooms in his house for 28 days.
"When I opened my eyes, I saw my father, holding a knife in his hands,” remembers Mario.“I was sure that he would kill me, as he was a Muslim-Wahhabi... He asked me: do I still accept Christ? When I said "yes", I was literally blinded by a bright light that gave me strength. Immediately I cried loudly: "Jesus!"... The light disappeared and I saw that my father had fallen down and caught himself on his own knife (Glory to God, though the injury was deep and bleeding, it was not dangerous), and saliva was flowing from his mouth. Relatives at once took him to the hospital and in their hurry left the door open. I took advantage of the opportunity, freed myself and ran away back to the educational center".
The young man firmly believes that a true miracle occurred to him: "This light gave me who am by nature weak and thin, then exhausted and hungry, enormous strength and endurance... Nevertheless,

Rio, I lived and worked in Saudi Arabia for three years, in Taif,. There is nothing that you could ever say that would change my mind on the stupidty of 99% of the Saudi population and the koran. I had one Saudi tell me that allah would never let a bomb fall on Mecca, allah would make them bounce off, and he was dead serious. They all can't get a grip on reality. Those that I worked with were all educated people or so they thought. Your a liberal fool chasing rainbows.

You shouldn't generalise. Not all Muslims are as gullible or brainwashed as your SA example. Many are very realistic and wise to the modern world. Many in fact do not get involved in politics or religion at all, apart from some basic cultural observance.
A Malay Muslim has nothing to do with a Saudi, and a Pakistani Muslim is completely different from a Tatar Muslim.
Stupidly, most people put them in one lump!

I cannot see anything wrong with liberalism, mostly when I look back and see how it has improved society in the last 100 years.
It's bigotry, chauvinism, nationalism and xenophobia that are at the origin of most conflicts.

More than 11,000 children have died in Syria's civil war in nearly three years, including hundreds targeted by snipers, a new report says.

Summary executions and torture have also been used against children as young as one, the London-based Oxford Research Group think tank says.

The report says the majority of children have been killed by bombs or shells in their own neighbourhoods.

It wants fighters trained in how not to put civilians' lives at risk.


Their report, Stolen Futures - the Hidden Toll of Child Casualties in Syria, examines data from the start of the conflict in March 2011 to August 2013.

Of the 11,420 victims aged 17 and under, 389 were killed by sniper fire.

Some 764 were summarily executed, and more than 100 - including infants - were tortured, the report says.

Boys outnumbered girls among the dead by around two to one. Boys aged 13 to 17 were most likely to be victims of targeted killings, the report says.

The highest number of child deaths occurred in the governorate of Aleppo, where 2,223 were reported killed.

Report co-author Hana Salama said that the way children are being killed is disturbing.

"Bombed in their homes, in their communities, during day-to-day activities such as waiting in bread lines or attending school.

"Shot by bullets in crossfire, targeted by snipers, summarily executed, even gassed and tortured," she said.The data was provided by Syrian civil society groups recording casualties
