The Sunni Shiite Divide: the Crimes of the Shia Rafidha

Condoleezza Rice said it in January 2007:

“There’s still a tendency to see these things in Sunni-Shia terms. But the Middle East is going to have to overcome that.”

A Kiss Is Just A Kiss, But Even As Time Goes By, Shiites Are Never Going To Be Accepted As Full-Fledged Muslims By Sunnis

“Shia and Sunni are brothers; those dividing them are traitors,” the crowd of Shiite worshippers chanted. [they do this, of course, because they are afraid of the Sunnis and want to proclaim a Muslim unity that does not exist]– Hugh Fitzgerald

Sunni-Shi’ite scuffle in Egypt: Four arrested after shoe thrown at Ahmadinejad

CAIRO (Reuters) – Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was both kissed and scolded on Tuesday when he began the first visit to Egypt by an Iranian president since Tehran’s 1979 Islamic revolution.

“The men, including a Syrian, belong to the ultra-conservative Sunni Salafist movement.” As I was saying. “4 arrested in Egypt after shoe thrown at Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad,” by Ayman Mohyeldin for NBC News, February 6:

Robert Spencer: Israel and the Ever-Elusive Muslim Unity

In FrontPage today I discuss how Ahmadinejad’s visit to Egypt shows again why the Muslim world will never be united — except in hatred of Israel.

the first visit to Egypt by a President of Iran since the founding of the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrived in Egypt Tuesday to an enthusiastic welcome from Egypt’s President Mohammed Morsi and top Egyptian officials. Yet underneath the kisses and expressions of mutual regard, the visit revealed yet again how deep the divisions are in the Islamic world – and why Sunnis and Shi’ites may only be able to unite on the basis of their mutual hatred of Israel.

Righteous Sunni Muslims Blow 45 Shiite Rafidite Dogs to the Virgins

I guess we need a template for these kind of events, then we  just adjust the numbers to whatever the daily toll is….

Twin blasts targeted pilgrims marking annual ceremony of Arbae’en near entrances to central shrine city of Karbala (Source)

Suicide bombers struck inside Iraq for the third day straight, killing 45 Shia pilgrims and wounding more than 150 as they marched from Baghdad to Karbala today.

The suicide bombers detonated cars packed with explosives at separate checkpoints outside the city of Karbala. “Two cars parked outside the checkpoints to the city exploded at the same time,” Mohammed al Moussawi, the chief of Karbala’s provincial council, told Reuters. (LWJ)

Watch out  for the inevitable  “nothing to do with Islam” claims, “real Muslims wouldn’t do a thing like that” apologies and anyhow, we all know it was da Jooozzz, the Mossad, Zionists (like me) and the big Satan, the Americans……

Attacker in Ambulance Kills 7 in Iraq

BAGHDAD (AP) — A suicide bomber driving an ambulance blasted a police compound northeast of Baghdad on Wednesday, killing at least seven people in the second major attack against Iraq’s security forces in as many days.

The blast in the eastern city of Baqouba occurred one day after a suicide bomber killed 65 people in a crowd of police recruits in Saddam Hussein‘s hometown of Tikrit. The attacks shattered the relative calm following last month’s formation of a new government by Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.   (New York Slimes)

Oh the irony: Shiite cleric in Ireland worries about Wahabites

Unfortunately, the good imam does not tell us  why Shia islam would be preferable to us infidels. Is he reading a different Koran? Or is it just another case of “my Allah is better than yours?”

EXTREMIST Wahhbais influenced by al-Qaeda are taking a hold in Ireland and some of these young adults are becoming influential in the country’s universities, the Muslim religious leader of a Dublin mosque has warned.

ABNR.ir

Imam Ali Al-Saleh, who runs the Shia mosque in Dublin’s Milltown, said fundamentalist Wahhabis who sympathise with al-Qaeda were living in Ireland and and that the recent arrest of a group of Wahhabis in Waterford and Limerick was proof of this.

“I think there is a problem with extremists in Ireland. Ireland is being used as a safe haven. We were not surprised over the arrests in relation to the plot in Sweden,” Dr Al-Saleh told the Sunday Tribune.

In other news from the RoP:

“Many extremist Wahhabis came to Ireland as asylum seekers. They are raising their children as extremists and these children have now grown into adults. There is now a problem in Ireland with extremists getting involved in university student societies. This is of concern.

These youths can be easily brainwashed. There are so many websites dedicated to extremism and so many speeches being made that influence these young people. It is a very hot atmosphere. We are warning people not to get involved.”

A bit of BS and a bit of taqiyya:

Islam is now the second biggest faith in Ireland after Christianity with approximately 32,000 Muslims living here. Imam Ali Al-Selim, chairman of the Irish Council of Imams and head of the Sunni mosque in Dublin’s Clonskeagh, said he did not believe there was a problem with extremists Wahhabis in Ireland.

“We are an integrated part of Irish society here. Nothing has happened to show us there are radical Wahhabis who call themselves as Muslim in Ireland. We as Muslims condemn all violence whether it’s against Muslims or non-Muslims,” he said.

Sure. That’s why Iran calls for ‘wiping Israel of the map’ on a daily basis and manufactures nukes to prove it….. the peace of Islam is the peace of the grave.

Afghanistan destroys books deemed insulting to Sunnis

“Books like these are more dangerous than Taliban bullets,” Gov. Ghulam Dastagir Azad told The Associated Press.

In the recent case, it was a load of pro-Shi’ite books from Iran that was destined for the bottom of the Helmand River. Ironically, the Afghan government has thus ignited sectarian strife by supposedly aiming to prevent it. And the question remains: are they concerned about Shi’ite Islam as a vehicle for Iranian influence, or simply because it is not Sunni Islam? Beyond that, there are several points of interest:

First, transparency is a prized attribute of a functional government, at least in the Western sense; it does not co-exist well with official corruption. But when a society and a government believes it is permissible to lie or equivocate in order to smooth things over or guard against non-believers (cf. Qur’an 3:28), there exists a disastrous precedent for how the government may do business when officials think no one is looking.

Second, the principle is expandable: What else will the government suppress in order not to “insult” this or that brand of Islam? Quite a bit, if the case of Syed Parwez Kambakhsh is any indication. And that begs the question of what kind of government Western forces are spending untold amounts of blood and treasure to prop up.

Above all, however, the story belies the harmony that would supposedly break out under a pure Islamic state: To say nothing of unbelievers, there could be no harmony as long as everyone was not in agreement about the “purity” of said state, and its fidelity to and enforcement of Sharia law. Even without the sense of entitlement of the “true believers” to govern and the call for open-ended warfare against unbelievers, stories like this make quite a case for the separation of religion and state.
