The conflict between X and C is not a religious conflict; it is a political conflict over the state of Israel. C has no beef with T either, though some C individuals, as well as some muslim states, have a conflict with America (which is in no sense a representative of T) over our unwavering support X when X commits grievous acts against some members of C.

The Hebrew Name for God - Elohim The name Elohim is unique to Hebraic thinking: it occurs only in Hebrew and in no other ancient Semitic language. The masculine plural ending does not mean “gods” when referring to the true God of Israel, since the name is mainly used with singular verb forms and with adjectives and pronouns in the singular (e.g., see Gen. 1:26).
