This was the reason I was careful with him from the beginning. Many of my friends seem to listen to his podcasts and read his books. One day, a good friend send me an article that talks about Islam, the middle east and how the west should approach the situation (found it!).

This was my answer to her when she asked me to comment it:

    Just commenting this piece. I am not sure if this guy is just writing what the president of the United States should say or if he is just not aware of what the actual truth is.

    Europe and the United States are the cause (yes, the cause) of the current state of terror in the world. Their interventions in the Middle East lead to the issue we have now. And this guy suggests more intervention by strengthening the people that need our help (how? More weapons probably).

    Islam is a religion that needs reform, that is true. Reform was happening and people we're changing, slowly! Iran or Palestine in the 70s was more liberal than now, because change was happening and coming from the people.

    Now however, Europe and the states messed up the region, invading, changing systems etc. and always selling it as "for the good of the people" while in reality they produced a vacuum that can only be filled by populists locally. And with the same trick they continue on doing so.

    Have a look at the oil prices and you will know that this strategy was very successful 🙂

    I don't know what solution there is. All I know is that they should stand up and say "we fucked up, we have to take in any refugee that comes because we OWE them that". At least that is my opinion

Right now, in the book, he is shit-talking every religion for similar reasons as to why I left Islam. As long as he sticks to the science of consciousness without trying to explain to me how the middle east works, I guess it is fine.
