Sunni, Shia Dialogue.
Reuters reports on THE DIALOGUE between the influential Sunni Yusuf al-Qaradawi and Iranian politico Akbar Hashmi Rafsanjani on the subject of Sunni-Shia sectarian tensions. If you read Arabic THIS is the direct interview from Aljazeera.
Obviously a very serious subject these days and as a few bloggers such as sandmonkey say, the Sunni-Shia conflict might be the next big mid-east war. Funny how just a few years ago this realy wasn't much of an issue!! If you notice in the "Dialogue" each one of those guys are trying to blame the other camp and say who started it first. But none the less, a "dialogue" is a step in the right direction. But will the Fighting Factions realy listen though? i doubt it, because there sure isn't much of a "Dialogue" going on in Iraq and not enough condemnation from the Arab/Muslim world towards the massacres taking place there.
We have Sunni-Shia conflict rite now in Iraq, one could be brewing in Lebanon, also in YEMEN,Shia Rebels killed and God knows where else!
The Disgusting thing is all those killers, claim to be devout Muslims yet this killing is a great sin in Islam. QURANIC VERSE "Who so ever kills a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he has killed all mankind, and who so ever saves the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind," (Al-Ma'dah:32).
