Another Karbala in Syria: Open Sunni-Shia War
Monday June 3, 2013 9:37 AM, Kaleem Kawaja

Yesterday prominent Sunni cleric Yusuf Qardawi who lives in Qatar and whose TV program is very popular in the middle-east, threw all pretences of being neutral in the ongoing Sunni-Shia conflict and appealed to all Sunnis to go all out to annihilate Shias in the region. He asked all able-bodied Sunnis to come together and join in the current civil war in Syria with the intent of killing Shias. Qardawi labeled Hezbollah of Lebanon as a party of devils whom Sunnis must fight and kill.

At the same time, Nasrollah of Hezbollah who has already sent his troops into Syria to kill the Sunni rebels has declared that his objective in the region is the same as that of the Alawaite Syrian President Assad, which is to annihilate Sunnis.

Inside Syria it is no more rebels against the Syrian government. It is an open civil war between Sunnis and Shias. Thus on one side are the Sunnis of Syria supported by the Sunni majority countries of Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Sunnis in general versus Shias supported by the Syrian govt, Hezbollah of Lebanon, the Shias of Syria and Lebanon, and the Alawaites of the region.

This open Sunni-Shia war has come in the background of the eight year Iraq vs Iran war of 1980s, which too was a Shia-Sunni war. The Christians of Lebanon and Iraq are supporting the Shias in the entire region. Both Shias led by Iran, an oil-rich state, and Sunnis led by Saudi Arabia and UAE - another conglomeration of oil rich states, have vast wealth and resources and ability to buy arms from US, Russia, China etc.

In such an internecine bloody conflict the Sunnis and Shias are trying to inflict maximum damage on each other, while their common enemy, Israel and the Jews are laughing away at their two common enemies killing each other and building mutual hostile relations that will last at least a decade if not war. So for the next ten years Israel is safe in occupying the lands of Palestinians with no one to make a serious objection.

This is how the enemies of Muslims easily divide the Muslims on a global scale while they exploit their lands and resources. It has happened so many times and is happening again in front of our eyes.
