Alexander the Great reportedly destroyed the Persian archives in Persepolis, including their wisdom book Avesta.

Default World War I

Most of the battles in WW I, though I am interested in what led up to the war, and U.S. involvement. And Canada's role in the war, since that really cut the apron strings from Britain.

Whites were victims for 1000 years when the Arabs conquered North Africa up all the way into France starting in 700AD and on the other side the mongols did the same thing. Terrible history that is hardly taught because it is not politically correct.

You mean the holomodor where 20 million innocent people were starved to death by the Soviets in Ukraine or 100 million killed in Russia by the soviets or were millions of Palestinians were forcibly displaced by Israel and land of Egyptians was taken.

Anything involving war and violence. All comes from man's animal nature and selfishness when allowed to overtake reason and rationality.

Funny, in the novel The Godfather, the character Don Corleone is portrayed as expressing basically the same thing.

Speaking of the Bolshevik revolution which was heavily supported by the Jewish intellectual community and with Marx and Trotsky (Lenin’s counterpart and both Jews) being vital to the creation of a communist state.
