#6 “ Shiites believe the Prophet Mohammed should have been succeeded by his son-in-law, Imam Ali, and leadership of the Muslim world should pass through the prophet's descendants. Sunnis don't believe the leadership of the Muslim world should necessarily pass through hereditary succession.”

#7 “ leading stream of Islam in Sunni Saudi Arabia, is extremely anti-Shiite, since certain Shiite practices conflict with Wahhabi Islamic practice. These include grave visitation and inordinate reverence for the Prophet and his family.” We can only hope the Saudi’s kill the Shiite sect. Notice how similar Shiite is to Sh1t?

As I recall, the oil is under the Shiite part. If they were allowed to think themselves equal, they might start getting ideas about who should profit from its extraction.

#10 AFAIK, Hazaras are the principal minority associated with Shiism in Afghanistan. They're said to be descended from Mongol invaders. I thought Islam was supposed to turn the meek into stone killers. Obviously failed with the Hazaras.

TBH, though, what's equally likely is that their Mongol conqueror forebears converted so they wouldn't have to conduct a root and branch extermination of the Muslim subjects they ruled over. Hard to shear a bunch of dead sheep. Same reason Henry of Navarre became a Catholic. Whatever the merits of Tengrism as an aid to morale in wartime, Herat is worth a shahadah.
