God wars/globalization: from Jehovah to Adam Smith

Syed Badrul Ahsan reflects on wars and skirmishes waged in God’s name

Armstrong is a very poor guide to world religion!

We are talking about a progression in the Axial Age, perhaps: Israelitism gives birth to jihad, which begins to exteriorize in Christianity, exploding in Islam as jihad. The issue was globalization via religion.
Note that the critique of religion as ‘violent’ by the New Atheists should be fair enough to compare not just religion and non-religion, but all forms of globalization. The process of gloabalization via religion seemed like a good idea at the time. Now they do the honors of jihad via economic bullshit handed down by Adam Smith.
Armstrong gets away with sugar doses to her public, viz. the idea that there was hardly a jihad in Islam.
