Thanks so much for posting Amatzia Baram's paper. It is absolutely fascinating.

...significant leaders both in Iraq and in Iran are encouraging the public to believe that they are living in a crucial historical moment and that they should expect some kind of apocalypse.

Too bad most Americans don't understand the religious movements operating on both sides. I was going to call them both radical. But it's time to stop categorizing them within the bounds of our own beliefs and just factor them into our analysis of the situation.

That's not an easy task for me.
