Peace under Islam? And yet the Sunni/Shia tribal divide has given the Middle East hatred, blood & fire for centuries
I can't understand why everybody looks to the U.S. to wipe out ISIS, the terrorist group that's carving out huge swaths of land on both sides of the Syrian and Iraq borders and trying to create its own country that would make the Taliban seem like kindergarteners. Saudi Arabia, for one, who unleashed much of this insanity with their 'Wahhabi' movement, variously described as 'ultra-conservative', 'fundamentalist', 'orthodox', 'austere', etc., exported throughout Islam, and one of the reasons 'ISIS' and 'Al Qaeda' exist in the first place. And now they want us to kill the movement, which I hope somebody does, but why does it have to be just us? We should charge the Saudis for every bullet expended, as well as "Hellfire" missiles and all the money it takes to fly each drone. We unleashed much of the *** in the Middle East, but the Saudis made it their goal to spread their brand of Sunni Islam throughout the world. *** !! Never forget that 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were Saudi!
ALL ABOUT Saudi Arabia, A TRULY FASCINATING COUNTRY: One of the most insular countries in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia has emerged from being an underdeveloped desert kingdom to become one of the wealthiest nations in the region thanks to vast oil resources. But its rulers face the delicate task of responding to pressure for reform while combating extremist violence. Named after the ruling Al Saud family, which came to power in the 18th century, the country includes the Hijaz region - the birthplace of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad and the cradle of Islam. This fact, combined with the Al Sauds' espousal of a strict interpretation of Sunni Islam known as Wahhabism, has led it to develop a strongly religious self-identity. Saudi women live under a wide range of restrictions, from dress to driving. Saudi Arabia was established in 1932 by King Abd-al-Aziz - known as the Lion of Najd - who took over Hijaz from the Hashemite family and united the country under his family's rule. Since his death in 1953, he has b ...

Shia/Sunni Islam & the fight for power in the Middle East by
After Muhammad died, a series of Caliphs governed the Islamic State: Abu Bakr (632-634), Umar ibn al-Khattab (Umar І, 634-644), Uthman ibn Affan, (644-656), and Ali ibn Abi Talib (656-661). These leaders are known as the "Rashidun" or "rightly guided" Caliphs in Sunni Islam. They oversaw the initial phase of the Muslim conquests, advancing through Persia, Egypt, the Middle East and North Africa. Umar improved the administration and built cities like Basra and canal and irrigation networks. To be close to the poor, Umar lived in a simple mud hut without doors and walked the streets every evening. After consulting with the poor, Umar established the first welfare state Bayt al-mal. The Bayt al-mal or the welfare state was for the Muslim and non-Muslim poor, needy, elderly, orphans, widows, and the disabled. The Bayt al-mal ran for hundreds of years under the Rashidun Caliphate in the 7th century and continued through the Umayyad period and well into the Abbasid era. Umar also introduced Child Bene ...
The reality of Wahabi linked with kufar لعنت خدا بر وهابي Shia genocide: The United States’ role - Tehran Times “Whoever helps in the killing of a believer even with a part of a word, he will meet Allah on the Day of Judgment with the following words written between his eyes: ‘Doomed from the mercy of Allah’,” said the Prophet of Islam (S). On 10 January, a series of bomb blasts ripped through Quetta, Pakistan, killing more than 100 people and wounding hundreds more, most of them Shia Muslims. The Al-Qaeda-linked extremist group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, whose stated goal is to transform Pakistan into a Sunni Islamic State, has claimed responsibility for the barbaric bombings. The attack has highlighted the ongoing cold-blooded campaign of Shia ethnic cleansing taking place in Pakistan, which has received sparse coverage in the Middle East and has been largely ignored by the Western media. A brief survey of recent news headlines from Pakistan emphasizes the gruesome reality of this inten ...
