I agree with your statement. It may not be religious, but it is sectarian based on political goals. I'm defending the Muslims who are being massacred in Syria right now. It's a religious obligation to defend our brothers and sisters. I'm not trying to be sectarian, but let's face the fact - the Syrian war is sectarian. Go talk to the average Shia on the street and they will be either pro-Assad or indifferent, just like Iran and Hezbul-Shaytaan (who are pro-Assad). Of course, there are Shias are who are independent thinkers and support Assad's downfall, but they are a minority. Who are the ones being killed on a massive scale in Syria? The Sunnis. When the Assad regime bombed Homs, they only bombed the Sunni neighborhoods and left all the Alawite neighborhoods. When the Alawite Shabiha and the security apparatus kidnap girls by offering them taxi rides and then taking them to security buildings where they are raped, they are always Sunni girls. You know what is sickening even more? I have seen numerous videos of this, the regime Alawite kidnappers target *specifically* Sunni girls who wear hijab to be raped. How can I sit back and not speak out against things such as this?
Go read all the pro-Assad comments on the Internet by so-called Muslims, and they are almost always by Shias. I don't blame the average Shia though, I blame their leaders like Khameini who have brainwashed them into being pro-Assad. So who are the real sectarians here? People are dying on a genocidal scale.
yes you should speak out against injustice. no one said u shouldnt. My point is that its nothing to do with shia and sunni. Let me give you a perfect example and you can hopefully extrapolate onto current events.
Firstly alawi arent shia either - they are kafir.
now let us go back to iraq in the second gulf war. Iraq was a country where shia and sunni lived together, inter-married etc then when the people took up arms it was both shia groups and sunni groups - because the army didnt fight.
So how did the west break this? They bombed shia shrines to blame sunni's and vice versa. Mossad were caught and so were british soldiers caught doing this. And other times they used their agents.
Now this happens in pakistan and all over the world. in pakistan they have used sikhs of afghanistan - as they resemble us to do this. and others including nepalese and sri lankans and ofcourse our own.
Lets get back to syria - no one denies injustice has been done and has been for almost a year. But point no.1 iran isnt supporting the killings. It has supported the assad regime as it is an ally in region and if it loses that and assad is replaced by a pro western ruler then iran is isolated. thats why iran and its proxy hezbollah have supported them.
It has nothing to do with shia or sunni. The only thing i am against is to turn into a sectarian war. the nations are doing it for self preservation and self interests.
Lets take this further. Saudi tanks rolled into bahrain when there was a shia uprising. Why? was it a religious thing? Shia's have always lived there so why now? It was a political move as saudi has its own shia population and if the bahraini shia's were successful then it would have given its own shia minority to rise. They cant afford that because a lot of its oil is produced in those areas where shia's reside.
So hopefully you see that there is no religious reason whatsoever. There are religious cloaks which are worn to get the poor to spill their blood to keep rulers in power, to make money for oil barons etc.
bro please all you can do to spe out against injustice, some of us are just saying it doesnt deserve a religious cloak - expose it for what it is. Because there will come more people who will dress in religious garb, get the sons and daughters to spill their own blood whilst they take the booty.
