SHIA/SUNNI have been slaughtering each other over 1.400 years

No it hasn't. Certainly far less so than schisms in Christianity.

It is said (difficult to check) that Shia and Sunni often used to share mosques. Extremely rare in Christianity.

I'm just telling you - 8 years old and not a single review in Amazon US or Amazon UK.

And its likely to be a pack of lies.

Sectarian War: Pakistan's Sunni-Shia Violence and its links to the Middle East OUP Pakistan, Aug. 2, 2012 - Political Science The book is an account of how the Shia-Sunni conflict was relocated from the Middle East to Pakistan after the rise of Revolutionary Iran in 1979, through the mediating agency of the rulers in Pakistan and the proliferation of the religious seminaries funded by Saudi Arabia. ... The book facilitates an understanding of the phenomenon of terrorism in Pakistan today.

Pakistan's Sunni-Shia Violence

Sectarian Divide | 101 East

Sectarian violence between extremist members of Pakistan's majority Sunni and minority Shia communities has resulted in the deaths of thousands of people since the 1980s.

Al Jazeera English 13 Sep 2013

More from 101 East on:

Pakistan: Sectarian Divide

Analysts say Pakistan is increasingly becoming the battleground in a proxy war between Saudi Arabia and Iran.

They claim the bulk of the violence more recently has been committed against the Shia community.

Bomb blasts this year alone have killed hundreds of Shias, with Sunni hardline group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi claiming responsibility for most of the violence.

The extremist group has an openly anti-Shia agenda and is banned in Pakistan. It is classified as a terrorist organisation by several Western nations.

Rights group Amnesty International says the Shia Hazara community is particularly vulnerable to being targeted. The Hazara tribe is ethnically Mongolian and its people have oriental features that make them easily identifiable from the rest of the country's population

So, can the Pakistani authorities protect its minorities and if so how?

101 East speaks with the families of victims of sectarian violence, from Pakistan's Shia as well as Sunni communities. We also speak with Hazaras who have survived attacks in Quetta, and those who are fleeing the insecurity they face while living there. We film with counter-terror police and the government and talk to them about efforts to end sectarian violence.

HEYAaaa BOT!! speech_balloon

Do you really think anyone would actually even get the courage or DARE getting a review on a book about  ZITSLAMIC matters? Will you get some reality?

Since the author is living in hiding with two body guards to protect him when he has to get out to visit his close family!!

Catching up on the US and the red summer of 1919?

Or the result of the US forcing millions of Afghan refugees on them with "Operation Cyclone", surely the most disgusting evil sadistic and malicious policy ever inflicted by one sovereign nation on another.

A number of the lefties could do themselves a favor and read this book, instead of always giving a bogus excuse why they are so violently on everyone's throats! 




Keeping silent is a type of cowardice when occasion demands speaking out about facts as a result to save lives.
