Sorry but the rise of militant islam in the modern era is very much a creation of the UK and the U.S, this goes as far back as the early 1900's when the British Empire over saw the destruction of the Ottoman Empire.
I really think you should be able to discern that "Muslin on Muslin" violence can be attritubted to many historical factors but that is certainly outwith the context that is being reffered to. And to attribute 95% [source lol] of all violence to Sunni vs Shia is a gross over simplification of what is actualy happening.

America caused, created and funded ISIS and Al Al Qaeda. The problem came when America caused religious hatred all around the World. Are you denying this my friend?
What I deny is that this Islam extremism is a US creation. That extremism has always been there, it is not anything new. 95% of the violence is Muslin on Muslin that goes back to the power struggle after Prophet Muhammad's death. What we see in the west is just a splash over as to what really goes on.
What created ISIS is the vacuum that Obama left with our total departure, and this age old hatred within the Muslin would between the Sunni/Shia. The Shia slammed the Sunnis and so ISIS sprung up in defiance, and grew with nothing to stop them, not really a US creation.... well unless the US goes back a few 1000 years...
the vast majority of that region has been controlled by warlords for about 2000 plus years
