Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
To answer to why it never ends one should first ask why it ever started, and kept restarting at every change of imperial suzerain of the region: that is Egypt,Babylon,Greece,Rome,Turkey Britain,and the almost inaugurated Third Reich emperor so dearly befriended by the Jerusalem Mufti. The present suzerain, the USA, has been the first one not to lose patience with the people of Moses. On the contrary it became their godfather, and made them the caretaker of its strategic interests in the region. Indeed an apocalyptical sign of change. Might it be the harbinger of doom either of the american role in the Middle East or of Israel, or both?
