If you want the history of the Middle East..and it's mindless tribalism in a nutshell, remember the scene in "Lawrence Of Arabia" where Omar Sharif shoots an Arab of another tribe because he used his water hole.
Pacifism is a shifty doctrine under which a man accepts the benefits of the social group without being willing to pay - and claims a halo for his dishonesty.
