Religious war? I really don't think so. Religion is already dead. Lol.

It's modern west meets agrarian east, no more. Those in the Levant are seizing on the Islamic religion because it's a good handle on their population. It allows them a medium to connect and try to unite their people.

But they are about as fundamental a religious sort as Mickey Mouse.

Two points

You cannot claim something is not religious, if they believe in a  Deity and relgiious doctrine.
The Islamists do.
Second, you clearly did not watch the video by that answer as well

I watched it. However, I was more provoked to respond by the first points.

As to religion, I think that the Middle Eastern revolutionaries are using religion as a conduit. They are not religious, and so their movement is not religious.

What Islamists believe is irrelevant. It's what those waging acts of violence believe. Now I don't care what they call themselves...after all, all crooks lie. They are using religion, not actual believers.
