You know what's sad and more than a bit ironic? No matter Quoting: Stand!
whether you're Shiite, Sunni, or whether you are Arab, Israeli,
American, Russian, etc,..we are ALL of the SAME ancestry!!!
Adam and Eve!! Every one of us are related to them.
These wars and this hatred and distrust of each other over
race, religion, cultural differences is ridiculous.
We are all human beings with inherent value and infinitely
Rumor has it that we are also capable of being intelligent..so
WHY can't we love and accept one another? In the end,
we're going to have to learn to do that anyway! I'm all for expedience
Regarding Muslims, I believe the hate and intolerance is a core part of their very religion Islam.
Quran 9:29 Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book (Christians and Jews
), until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued (Jizya is the money that non-Muslims must pay to their Muslim overlords in a pure Islamic state).
Now around, if not over 90% of Muslims are either Sunnis or Shias. Both read and believe both the Quran and Hadiths. And from a couple of hadiths:
"Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews." -- Sahih Muslim 6985
Sahih Bukhari 4.52.177: "Allah's Apostle said, The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say: 'O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him'."
