These aren’t Muslims and Christians killing each other. They’re Christians….both sides. I think most Americans would find it as strange as we did that two Christian groups whose beliefs are very very similar would actually want to kill each other. I suppose it shouldn’t be all that surprising – most, if not all of the killing going on throughout history has been in the name of religion. But, having grown up very Christian, it still amazed me that two Christian groups were fighting this way. To me, it would be like the Baptists going after the Presbyterians….an idea that we would laugh about.
On the Catholic side, the houses are built right up next to the wall, so close that they have chain link enclosures protecting the homes from objects being lobbed over the wall.
