Islam’s Shi’ite-Sunni Mideast Rivalries

The most ferocious religious conflicts are often not those between different religions, but rather between various streams within a common religion. That is no longer true in the context of Christianity between Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox, but it is certainly the case in Islam, with the Shiites led by Iran hostile towards the Sunnis led by Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

To look at the current state of affairs in the Shiite-Sunni relationship, and what it may mean to Israel, we are joined by Colonel Reuven Ben-Shalom, cross-cultural strategist and associate at the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism, and Dr. Yossi Mansharof, Iran and Political Shiite Islam Expert at the JISS Research Institute and the Ezri Center of Haifa University. Analyst Amir Oren. Host Jonathan Hessen.
