Another Sunni Shiite Rift
By Micah Halpern

Friday February 27, 2009

I've Been Thinking:

The inner conflicts within Islam are getting more and more pronounced.
And the West remains oblivious, uninterested, or simply uninformed.

Case in point:
Morocco just recalled their ambassador to Iran.
Why? Because Iran insulted Bahrain last week.

Here's a recap:
In the middle of negotiations between the Iran and Bahrain, Iran ridiculed the Shah of Iran for liberating the 14th Province which is today's Bahrain. And so Bahrain walked out on the negotiations.

Some background:
It seems that earlier in the week The Supreme Leader, The Ayatollah Khamenei, said that Bahrain was truly Iran.

What we have now is a very big Sunni Shiite rift.
Bahrain is Sunni and Iran is Shiite.
Sunni newspapers throughout the Muslim world have decried Iran's arrogance, asking how dare Iran encroach on Bahrain sovereignty?

Morocco acted in defense of their fellow Sunni Muslim brothers and withdrew their ambassador.
In the meantime, Ahmadinejad sent a note to the Emir of Bahrain asking that they come back to the table to talk about natural gas. He did not apologize, he did discuss the great history of Iran.

This episode is not over yet.
