When reading philosophy and metaphysics articles in the Quodlibet Online Journal of Christian Theology and Philosophy , I sometimes visit their discussion boards (and find much there with which to both agree and disagree). The latest featured forum regards the Arab-Israeli Conflict . It offers some food for thought regarding our ongoing conversations regarding Islamic Fundamentalism, in general, as viewed through the lens of the Arab-Israeli Conflict, in particular.
Below are the threads most recently posted for your perusal and comment here or for your participation there.
