      it seems like the atrocities on both sides goes on and on. It has never really stopped, and a thousand years of wars where one religion or another is persecuted coming out of the biblical Middle East has continued progress, if in slow motion. The Holocaust of WWII can be linked to prevailing attitudes, following the fall of the Ottoman Empire in WWI.  

      The only difference between now and then, is technology. Tech makes it all feel much closer to home and more often.
