Islam has been around for barely 1450 years, and the division, or "Fitna" as it's called by Muslims, happened about 30-40 years later (I think). It was between Hassan and Hussein(sons of the fifth man of Islam, Ali)and and the Umayyads (who later became the Moors of Spain). It didn't last long, and Hassan and Hussein were betrayed by their followers from Iraq, and were eventually killed by the Umayyads. The "traitors" later became the Shia of Ali, which literally means the party/group of Ali. The reason you see Shia followers beat the sh*t out of themselves on Ashura (the day Hassan and Hussein were killed) is that they see it as a form of punishment for betraying them. After that, all the conflicts were political and small. The Shia-Sunni sh*t started again after the invasion of Iraq.
Sure sure.

Islam explained :

A Pakistani immigrant goes to a Doctor and says "I feel terrible". The Doctor says "You need to pee and crap in a bucket for a week, Throw in a dead fish and a rotting cabbage. Put a towel over your head and inhale the vapours' for 3 days". The man does this and goes back to the Doctor and says, "I feel wonderful!! What was wrong with me?" * "You were homesick".*

OK, I rounded up...so sue me.

And I guess I owe you (and all Muslims) an apology wrecking Iraq and getting the sectarian ball rolling. Clearly, this shit is all my fault.

I am happy and excited for your misery although the coincidence of this storm and your day off have me scratching my head. This is what you do with your free time...ice fishing and changing the weather? It's a good thing we're buddies.

Hey Bud. Which would bother you most? Russia and Hezbollah condemning the attack on Syria's sovereign soil or the UN declaring that the settlements are a violation of the Geneva Convention and Palestinian rights or the Egyptians denouncing violence or Hamas and Fatah kissing up in Feb? Huh? Huh?

E. None of the above.

A. "Alleged" Israeli attack
B. UN...seriously?
C. Egyptians denouncing violence as their funerals are attacked. Hah.
D. As it should be. For good or bad they can't take the next step without unification.

Okay. Do think this Coke ad to be shown during the Superbowl is racist towards Arabs? The Arab Defamation League says it makes Arabs look dumb. I kid you not. Check it out.

Y'know, I saw this in my Al Jazeera scan this morning and decided not to bring it up on account of Ahmad's breakthrough yesterday. I didn't want to rub it in that the Arab guy doesn't have a chance but I never thought it made him look dumb...just Arab.

What happens if the spot airs, the people vote, and then it turns out to have been a tortoise and hare story all along? The Arab Anti Defamation League will look pretty silly getting all insulted then I bet.

I dunno, maybe "Open happiness" doesn't translate into Arabic but clearly all Coke was saying is that Arabs are handsome and camels are stubborn. Of course, even lost in translation it never takes much to get the masses stirred up. If they were included in the field then they'd probably be complaining about being lumped in with the leggy Jezebels.

I voted for the Showgirls.
