So what your saying is that Iran is to Al-Queda, what the KKK is to the Black Panthers if I got you right...
They wouldn't be working together..ever..
Its WND...its like the onion..but without the humor. I take everything coming from them with a fraction of a grain of salt.
In regards to a terrorist organization planning terror attacks...well, not really news..its sort of what they do...they aren't going to be planning
global bake sales after all.
Yeah, that's not too far off, actually. It's been one of the more amazing things to learn about Islam as I've made a point of trying to understand
it a bit better than the media presents it. To hear the extreme side of Shia talk, there is nothing worse than a Sunni and extreme Sunni's simply
won't stop until Shia lands are wiped to a person. (Which, when you gaze at a map and consider U.S.-Sunni (Saudi) alliances, isn't that far from
Hearing an extreme Sunni is no more tolerant or peaceful about Shia. The terms are a bit more colorful and derogatory in my experience, but the two
sides have MAJOR problems with each other. If the US backed 100% out of the entire Middle East (as we know won't happen), Saudi Arabia and Iran would
still have a fight at some point I think.
I think the Sunni/Shia fight underlies EVERYTHING else that has been happening in that region for at least the last 20-25 years, if not back much
further. Certainly, recent events though.
I think the Sunni Al Qaeda fighters could appeal to the Iranian Islamic hospitality and sheltering customs or regulations or however one wants to put
it. That whole aspect of their culture is among the more odd to my Western thinking. Even near enemies can get shelter if asking under certain
circumstances and they consider it a life/death honor thing to follow through on it as I've read.
I'm sure people who have been there will be quick to correct (welcomed if needed) if I'm real wrong on all that.
