Pete, Sorry to break in but...
"Money does not bring happiness for sure... "
You need to rethink this if you meant it as a statement of your own belief. I think the answer is just the opposite and you can't understand history with out understanding this point!
Have a great day, please excuse.
PS, Your earlier post mentioned miracles in the new Testament. The correct explanation of the miracles can be found on Barbara Thiering's websites. The great unwashed love miracles, they love their naivete'. So leaders gave them miracles in spades. And yes this naivete explains quite a bit about the mideast (and us) even today. (This PS is a response to your first post.)
