Middle EastThe Middle East is a region that roughly encompasses Western Asia and Egypt. The term is used as a synonym for Near East, in opposition to Far East. The corresponding adjective is Middle Eastern and the derived noun is Middle Easterner. Arabs, Persi... ans, and Turks constitute the largest ethnic groups in the region by population, while Kurds, Azeris, Copts, Jews, Assyrians, Maronites, Circassians, Somalis, Armenians, Arameans, Druze and other denominations form a significant minority.The history of the Middle East dates back to ancient times, and the region has generally been a major center of world affairs. However, in the context of its ancient history, the term "Near East" is more commonly used. Several major religions have their origins in the Middle East, including Judaism, Christianity, and Islam; the Baha'i faith, Mandaeism, Unitarian Druze, and numerous other belief systems were also established within the region more

North KoreaNorth Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, is a country in East Asia, in the northern part of the Korean Peninsula. The name Korea is derived from Goryeo, a name used by ancient and medieval kingdoms. The capital and largest ... city is Pyongyang. North Korea shares a land border with China to the north and north-west, along the Amnok and Tumen rivers. A small section of the Tumen River also forms North Korea's short border with Russia to the northeast. The Korean Demilitarized Zone marks the boundary between North Korea and South Korea. The legitimacy of this border is not accepted by either side, as both states claim to be the legitimate government of the entire peninsula.Korea was annexed by the Empire of Japan in 1910. In 1945, when Japan was defeated in World War II, Korea was divided into two occupied zones, with the north occupied by the Soviet Union and the south by the United States. Negotiations on unification failed, and in 1948 two separate governments were formed: the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in the north, and the Republic of Korea in the south. The conflicting claims of sovereignty led to the Korean War in 1950 more
TerrorismIn the international community, terrorism has no legally binding, criminal law definition. Common definitions of terrorism refer only to those violent acts that are intended to create fear; are perpetrated for a religious, political, or ideological ... goal; and deliberately target or disregard the safety of non-combatants. Some definitions now include acts of unlawful violence and war. The use of similar tactics by criminal organizations for protection rackets or to enforce a code of silence is usually not labeled terrorism, though these same actions may be labeled terrorism when done by a politically motivated group. Usage of the term has also been criticized for its frequent undue equating with Islamism or jihadism, while ignoring non-Islamic organizations or individuals.The word "terrorism" is politically loaded and emotionally charged, and this greatly compounds the difficulty of providing a precise definition. A study on political terrorism examining over 100 definitions of "terrorism" found 22 separate definitional elements. In some cases, the same group may be described as "freedom fighters" by its supporters and considered to be terrorists by its opponents more
Annexation of Crimea by the Russian FederationThe annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation was the March 2014 forcible acquisition of most of the Crimean Peninsula, internationally recognized as part of Ukraine, into the Russian Federation. Starting 21 March 2014, Russia effectively admin... isters Crimea as two federal subjects—the Republic of Crimea and the federal city of Sevastopol.The annexation occurred at culmination point in the 2014 Crimean crisis, caused by a military intervention of Russia into the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, both administrative divisions of Ukraine, earlier in March. Masked green troops without insignia, identified as the Russian military by multiple worldwide sources, took over the Supreme Council of Crimea, which led to the installation of the pro-Russian Aksyonov government in Crimea, the declaration of Crimea's independence and the holding of a disputed, majorly unconstitutional referendum, that was described by BBC News reporter John Simpson as a "remarkable, quick and mostly bloodless coup d'etat" more
United Nations' inactionUN has a record of inaction towards situations that need action. They have left countless genocides happen in the past. Just like the League of Nations failed to prevent WW2, the UN will fail to prevent WW3.
I like how it says here's pointing at you Christians and jews, when the most violent religion is Islam.
Actually secularism tends to be far more violent than Islam even.
Islam despite for being the world's largest religion, is on average peaceful. Otherwise you expect far more islamic terrorist than normal.
@Hect, I never said that it was a religion. But secular motivations cause far more violence than religious motivations. It is merely a fact.
That is offensive in the "Religions" answer! It isn't OUR fault that the world is on the verge of WW3! (I am a Christian, by the way.)
Well I would be safe in assuming you were talking to Brenden-Lawrence who was speaking about religion, you brought up the unrelated topic
@Sniper1576: playing the 'offence' card means absolutely nothing
Hect, just because most of the previous wars (Holocaust included) is based off of us Christians and the Jews, doesn't mean that we are the problem/reason to why wars start.
He put jews under religion, cause jews blow things up all the time!
Jews do not! And why are Christians there? I am offended.
@Hect Well you are correct that it was in relevant to Brenden-Lawrence's comment. But never the less, it was partially related to the topic of the poll. While Islam is fairly violent compared currently to other religions, religious violence on a whole is quite minor compared to secular violence. And to ask which one would likely cause WW3, it would obviously likely be a secular issue causing WW3 instead of a religious one. So while my comment wasn't relevant to Brenden-Lawrence comment, it was still relevant
Mathgeekjoe, I agree, but, also... Diversity of religion was the start of the fights in Afghan.
And that is like the one war started on religion compared to like 9 times as many caused by secular issues.
True, but, also, ISIS is starting to start a war based on religion. But, it could be both...
Still ISIS is only one issue capable of WW3. There are many more secular issues likely to cause it. But one thing that is constant with most of the issues, is inaction of the UN. Only way ISIS would start WW3 would be if they were ignored and left to fester, and the only way the other issues would turn into WW3 would be if they were neglected by the UN.
Christianity has reason to be included in this poll. I think he should have added Islam too, but the point remains. As for the "why" religion has divided. Ignoring the fact is not productive. For everyone who would like to think of America as a "christian nation" ignoring what that means when tied to the damage a nation can and does do, again, not helpful.
America was founded on Christianity. It even states it in the Constitution, but, lets not debate now.
@Mathgeekjoe: yes but secular issues are not the opposite of religion so I Still don't know why you made the point. So everything that's in the pole that has nothing to do with religion is technically a secular issue such as 'united nation inaction'.
@Sniper1576: cry me a river, no one cares if you're offended
I'm not trying to make a big deal. I'm just saying: some christians and jews may be offended by the comment...
@Sniper1576: Why tackle someone's argument when you can just pick a word and take offence at it?
I'm not taking offence to just one word.
@Sniper1576: take me literally if you want then. A group of words the point is still the same. Saying "i'm offended" does not constitute as an argument, If I wanted to I could be offended that your name is 'sniper' but where does that get me?
How does having my name as Sniper make you offended? And, I'm not making a claim, I'm just saying that someone could take very much offence to that.
My point exactly offence is such a subjective term that anyone could be offended by anything but the rest of us should not have to tiptoe around cry baby's who feel upset over baseless words without presenting an argument. If you don't agree explain why, do not just whine like a 2 year old and think it will help your cause.
Ok, you want an argument? Well here: The religion section shouldn't say "Pointing at you, christians and jews" because it isn't correct. WWIII isn't going to happen just because of two religions. One is because, when Hitler rose to power, it wasn't just because of the Jews, but all of the other religions that either: 1) Didn't fit the "Perfect Race" thing or 2) Didn't follow Hitler's rules/laws. Also, WWI didn't happen because of two religions, nor did it start with religion.
If you want terrorism to be repaced with islam, go ahead and put it in. I thought since the two had links, it would be hinted, but didn`t want to bame a population because that 2% of muslims. Also, if all islam people are violent, India would be in civil war everyday.
Greatkitteh, India is Hindu genius.
