Sectarianism In The Arab World

Both the Saudi royal family and the Iranian regime are responsible for the sectarian violence in the Arab and Muslim worlds as they embarrass and support sectarian militias. However, the Qatar royal dynasty has followed them.

The Sunni-Shiite dispute is much lesser than the Orthodox-Catholic dispute, for example. Massive massacres have never been made as happened in Europe between the Catholic and Orthodox 'war lords'. Historically, most of Sunnis condemn the massacre committed against descendants of prophet Mohammad (peace being upon him).

The Sunni-Shiite dispute has never been on religious basis. Ruling dynasties always (throughout the history) exploit the differences to keep their control over Muslim people.

Undoubtedly, 'foreign hands', like Israel and the U.S. administration are supporting their Saudi-led Gulf monarchies, which irritate 'Sunni' public opinion against Shi'as, in order to stop the Iranian influence over the 'Middle East'.

However,the Saudi and Iranian regimes must stop their ugly (and poisonous) wars, which will increase hatred and wars between Muslim and Arab people.
