I’ve posted this reply in another thread about who is responsible of the killings in Iraq :
it is a sunni sect which consider Ibn Taymiyah as their founding Father, they have an extreme and aggressive look against who does not carry their beliefs, to sufis, ash’arries and especially to Shiites, and some might consider these sects as infidels and faithless !
They find Jehad as a necessity and a must, and thats why we find them in Afghanistan, Chechneya and Iraq, taking into consideration their perception of the american presence in the middle east and iraq as oppression and invasion, so they must be fought, killed and slaghtered.
But why the Shiites ?
First as we have mentioned, to those in Al Qaeda and its followers and admirers, Shiites are being looked as though thery are:
- Infidels - Not muslims
- American Agents - because they accepted the american presence and co operate with them
- Since the leaders of the Iraqi Government , the dominating iraqi party and the prime minister noori al maliki are shiite, and shiite are in power, salafi’s think that shiites pose a threat to sunnis in iraq.
It is important to mention that those groups - the wahabis and salafis - before the mid ninties were actually “nurtured” and “strengthened” by the saudi and the US governments to fight communism !
The Saudi Government played an important role in the seventies and eighties in supporting and backing up those groups with their ideologies in afganistan and in different countries. So it is quitley correct of we say that these extermist groups are a mkae of saudi and US.
These groups are being disapproved and rejected by most muslims today and disagree with their acts ! Even some wahabis today cooled down a bit and backed off some of its beliefs as it is being rejected by many but still are considered extreme
And I would like to add that one shi’ite clergymen was beheaded couple of years ago, and he is considered a muslim ?
Than who is blame ?
Is it islam ?
Than why some muslims are being targeted !
Before the sectarianism war today which started after blowing up the holy shiite shrines in samarra earlier this year, shiites were continually killed daily, and the most recent was the explosion in Al Sader City yesterday !
Shiites are a part of Islam and they are beheaded 1000 times more, than who is to blame ?
