In so many words, he said they are Zoroastrians.

He might not be totally wrong, since Iran does cultivate its image as the successor of the Persian Empire.

But it does not bode well for peace between the two states.

This is nothing new in Islam.  That belief is generally held by the Sunnis.

Even in Turkey, “Alevis” which constitute the second largest religious community in Turkey, often categorized under Shia denomination, also not considered Muslims. In fact they are so despised, they torched the hotel where the Alevis were having a peaceful conference, burning alive 35 poets, musicians, writers and intellectuals. This all happened in full view of the city, police, and the chanting sunnis as seen in the photo.

Look up Madimak Hotel, Sivas

More fabricated anger by either religious zealots or power mad psychopaths, I guess. Such nonsense, it’s hard to believe the human race has survived this long.

An aside:

I was listening to this programme (you might be able to get the podcast) the other day about “Sushi marriages” (sunni-shia). Kind of interesting. Some say it’s forbidden, others say it’s not, and that in fact it’s just normal and has been for ages.

There must be so many Muslims fed up with all the infighting and religious claptrap.

More bullshit courtesy of religion.  Why do people believe this crap?  (don’t answer, I know why)

And you are you for sunni shia peace, or international division?

I read a shia book once, saying the the USA scholars for dollars in Saudi Arabia were prsecurting shia pilgrims, desecrating holy sites etc.

Thats two political posts in a row, a record rfor me. Yawn.
