One of the instruments that the enemies use is creating discord among us. I insist that we stress and place great emphasis on this matter. Brothers, sisters, Muslims in the world of Islam, if this call reaches your ears, you should know that the day when the words Sunni and Shia appeared in the American discourse, we became concerned. Every insightful person became concerned. What does America have to do with Sunni and Shia? What does such and such a Jewish Zionist politician in America who has done nothing except for showing malevolence against Islam and Muslims have to do with making judgments about Sunni and Shia in the world of Islam? Why should he say something about Sunni and a completely different thing about Shia? Since the Shia and Sunni discourse showed itself in American words, those people who were perceptive and intelligent in the world of Islam became concerned. They understood that a new scheme was being devised, and it was finally put into practice.
There is a history behind waging a war between Shia and Sunni. The English are experts at this. We have many records and abundant information about the history of waging a war, creating discord and instigating grudges between Sunni and Shia. Such discord was created by English agents whether in our country, in the former Ottoman government or in Arab countries with the purpose of pitting these countries against one other. However, the plot that the Americans have hatched today is a more dangerous plot. Does supporting a denomination against another denomination in the world of Islam make us happy? If they advocate us, should we be happy then? No, we should become sad and see what week points they have found in us that they want to use and that has made them advocate and support us.
They are opposed to the essence of Islam.
- Ayatollah Khamenei, December 29, 2015
Shias smoke Shias cigarettes and Sunnis smoke Sunnis cigarettes
One cuts your head of from left to right, the other from right to left. I forget which is which..................
There’s differences but no where near as big as westerners want to think.
There ARE differences between Methodists and Baptists - but NO WHERE NEAR AS BIG AS THE DIFFERENCES AS BETWEEN METHODISTS AND MUSLIMS.
IT’S THE SAME WITH SECTS WITHIN ISLAM. In brief - they all go to Mecca...
They are both Islamic Terrorists. By Doctrine.
I guess I am willing to believe that. However this means that for 500 years or more, people who have “no differences” have done everything they can to elevate the act and practice of slaughtering each other to the highest importance in their existence. So maybe I’m missing some subtle Point here, but the idea that they hate each other enough to go to war dozens of times and kill each other as religious Redemption somehow belies this assertion by the esteemed Ayatollah.
Garbage. They've been cutting one another's throats wholesale since 632 AD, at which point England wasn't even Christian yet.
I guess I missed the part in my history class where Baptists and Methodists killed each other for centuries over their differences. A better analogy would be Catholic/Protestant who actually did do that. But Islam is still stuck in the 16th century in that regard (if not the 7th century).
“They are oppose to the essence of Islam.”
Well, he’s got that right !
This is the face of sheer panic.
Just another Jedi mind trick from the shias as they proceeded to slaughter sunnis in Syria...
Dec. 29 2015? Was this in response to something happening then? Trump was gearing up for the primaries at that point.
I agree. They are both followers of a false prophet, a charlatan who sought worldly treasures and whose ridiculous promises of virgins in heaven inspired in his followers a fools courage.
I guess I’m saying they have much more in common with each other than with any of us. So if we attack them - they will tend to stand with each other. Against us.
Sunnis probably feel the same way, so long as their version is the one that rules.
When posting, you cut off “IMHO”.
Sunni, shia, whatever. They’re all muslims. That’s all you need to know. And beware: they all hate you, the infidel.
A muzzie is a muzzie is a murderous muzzie regardless of nationality.
