Is religion the main cause of war as some critics claim? Not according to research by Bradford University: Only 10% of all wars in the 20th and 21st century have had a clear religious motivation. Even Arab-Israeli wars were judged to be primarily nationalistic, not religious. The report states that in the 20th century, ‘atheistic totalitarian states (Stalin’s Russia and Mao’s China) have perpetrated more mass murder than any state dominated by a religious faith. The report noted the positive role of religion in pressing for non-violent resolution of conflicts and that ‘very few, if any, wars in the past 100 years have been purely religiously motivated wars’.

David Cameron has vowed to examine licences for the sale of arms to Russia after claims they breached a ban. It comes after MPs warned export licences for the sale of arms, including components for anti-aircraft guns, remained in place despite fears Moscow was arming rebels in Ukraine. Downing Street said the UK had not sold arms to Russia’s armed forces since March. The Prime Minister, who has criticised other EU countries’ deals with Moscow, said he was confident that was still so but the claims would be examined in detail.
