Royston BS: Did Yahweh have an absent-minded fit? (39) RE: BS: Did Yahweh have an absent-minded fit? 06 Mar 10

There are some Arabs that believe God blessed them with all that oil, that they might be so rich and powerful and advance their marginalised beliefs about the nature of God and the worship of God.

Whereas most Arabs (the ones that have not managed to seize the petrodollars for themselves) tend to regard it as a curse upon their society: some sort of punishment that brings death, murder, poverty, violent fundamentalism, foreign invasion, foreign manipulation of culture and society, foreign arming of murderous dictators so that they can extinguish dissent and keep the oil flowing out of the country.

My sympathies (can you tell?) are with the latter group.

Arguably, God did the Children of Israel a favour.
