In the early 1950s people answering the Iraq census didn’t know whether to pick “Sunni” or “Shia” coz many were mixed.

In 1958, Egypt’s Grand Mufti declared that Shiism will be taught in Al Azhar as the fifth school alongside Sunni schools of jurisprudence.

In the 1960s Sunni Saudi Arabia supported the Zaydi Shias in Yemen in a civil war against Egypt-supported Republicans.

In the 1980s, the majority of the Iraqi army fighting Iran in the Iraq-Iran war was made up of Arab Shias.

The current dynamic isn’t a conflict of sectarianism but a willful and cynical sectarianization of a regional power struggle.

— Iyad El-Baghdadi (@iyad_elbaghdadi) January 13, 2016
January 13, 2016 at 11:35AM


Tyrants are rarely ideologically committed to Sunnism or Shiism; but are happy to exploit either when it’s expedient.

— Iyad El-Baghdadi (@iyad_elbaghdadi) January 13, 2016
January 13, 2016 at 11:36AM


Also, trying to connect every conflict today to a conflict that happened before it is tempting but often anachronistic.

— Iyad El-Baghdadi (@iyad_elbaghdadi) January 13, 2016
January 13, 2016 at 06:00PM


Btw, a common thing modern sectarianists do is present a re-reading of history that fits their narrative.
