Sunni – Shia Muslims: So What’s the Differance?

It seems that when Muslims aren’t fighting against us (infidels, Israel, or the US) they are fighting against each other. Sunni against Shia, or vise versa. Why is this and what’s the difference between the two?

This reminds me of the split in the Mormon church when the supposed prophet died. Some believed in electing (they say God appointed) and keeping it in the family. Both are around today, but the elected sect is the most popular and has the greatest number. In Islam the Sunni sect is the most popular and has the greatest number leaving the Shia with the majority of members in government power in many countries of the Middle East. Unlike Mormons of today the two sects of Islam continue to war against each other. When you get to the root of it there is no political or social reason for waring against each other. It is all religious at the bottom of it all.

I personally would rather see them fighting each other than uniting and fighting against us (any infidel, Israel, or the US). With this new group ISIS the war between the two sects has heightened even more in recent days. This may not be a popular opinion, but I think the US should just get out of the way and let them fight it out, the chips falling where they may. We have our own oil supply if we would just use it. The bottom line of why we are there at all is oil. Either side we help in this conflict is the Wrong Side.

About Kathy

I am semi retired and had lots of free time on my hands. I still work part time as a bookkeeper at the little hardware store in our small town but I still had free time to fill so I became a blogger here at The Harley Factor. I also am a compulsive beader so I started a beading blog to show off my bead work call Compulsive Beading. As I have gotten older and mostly wiser I have become very opinionated on a lot of subjects and will share them with you from time to time when I can't keep my mouth shut. Kathy Sinclair
