muslim nutjobs and jewchristian zionists both believe that
a) armageddon is coming
b) the messiah will be born on their side at some late stage of war.
c) this messiah will be almost the only one left alive after the coming war
d) there are no good or evil actions, only good or evil sides and their side is good.
