Economics and human practicality have finally triumphed over backwards superstition and religious dogma underlying the Sunni-Shia conflict, which has caused 100s of millions of unnecessary deaths, war, global terrorism, and destruction over the past few hundred years.
In a hugely symbolic victory of sound economics and practicality triumphing over stupid, backwards and idiotic sectarian violence, religious, and ethnic discrimination, the French oil refining company Total has successfully brokered a joint oil drilling/natural gas development deal with Qatar (Sunni dominated) and Iran (Shia dominated) as joint partners.
Only a few weeks ago, Saudi Arabia (source of Sunni aggression in the Middle East) and the rest of the Gulf Cooperation Council (“GCC”) issued a stern warning to Qatar not to get into bed, with or do business with Iran, a Shia-dominated country who have been mercilessly attacked, vilified, and isolated from the rest of the Middle East, Europe and United States at the behest of Saudi Arabia and its ally, Israel.
The list of demands handed by Saudi Arabia and the GCC (backed by the US and Israel) to Qatar, given only 1 week to comply, was altogether unrealistic, ridiculous, over-arching, over-bearing, and all at once impossible to comply with (e.g., closing down the Al Jazeera News Network which is the only relatively free media operation in the Gulf State area).
Now the Russian news outlet “Duran” reports in their new article “Qatar, Iran, a French gas company and one natural gas field” that Qatar and Iran have together openly flouted Saudi Arabia (and the rest of the GCC, U.S. and Europe) to work together in the spirit of economics, practicality, independence, individuality and mutual cooperation to develop energy together with a leading European nation, France, for the benefit of their respective nations.
Few people understand the massive and earth-shattering global ramifications of such a development – this is literally the beginning of the end of the openly hostile, violent, destructive, and disruptive Shia-Sunni Islamic conflict which has ravaged the Muslim World for the past few hundred years, resulting in untold death, destruction, war, terrorism, and disturbance to the Middle East and the rest of the world, killing hundreds of millions of people.
This Sunni-Shia conflict has also been successfully exploited and used by countless countries, intelligence agencies, unscrupulous businessmen, and individuals all across the planet to line their own pockets with gold and silver, all at the expense of the world and its security.
Those nations representing the P5+1 (United Kingdom, China, Russia, Germany, USA, France) which helped to negotiate, broker, crystallize, and then finalize the Iran Nuclear Agreement can now sit back and smile triumphantly, as that deal literally paved the way for such a monumental development and achievement for humanity, peace in the Middle East, and diplomacy, rather than outright war, cacophony, destruction, war, terrorism, and death all across the world.
Human reasoning and insight has overcome the idiotic superstitions and hocus-pocus discrimination held by generations of people in the Middle East, to try and preserve the world, and avoid World War 3.
Now let’s see who tries to dissuade and derail this burgeoning French/Iran/Qatar oil/gas development deal – as they will then have revealed themselves to in fact be the enemies of humanity, and the source of global wars and destruction to begin with for the past few hundred years, responsible for the deaths of untold countless innocent souls.
