An Interesting Split
Now this story coming out od Saudi Arabia gives a little light to the civil war theory. However from this it does not look like it will be in Iraq but a middle eastern civil war between Shiites and Sunnis.
Saudi religious leader blasts Hizbullah
A top Saudi Sunni cleric, whose ideas inspired Osama bin Laden, issued a religious edict Saturday disavowing the Shi'ite guerrilla group Hizbullah, evidence that a rift remained among Muslims over the fighting in Lebanon.
Hizbullah, which translates as "the party of God," is actually "the party of the devil," said Sheik Safar al-Hawali, whose radical views made the al-Qaida leader one of his followers in the past.
"Don't pray for Hizbullah," he said in the fatwa posted on his Web site.
The edict, which reflects the historical stand of strict Wahhabi doctrine viewing Shi'ite Muslims as heretics, follows a similar fatwa from another popular Saudi cleric Sheik Abdullah bin Jibreen two weeks into the conflict with Israel.
"It is not acceptable to support this rejectionist party (Hizbullah), and one should not fall under its command, or pray for its victory," bin Jibreen said at the time. That fatwa set off a maelstrom across the Arab world, with other leaders and people at the grass roots level imploring Muslims to put aside differences to support the fight against Israel.
INTERESTING ISN'T IT. MAYBE THEY WILL GET IT ON AND FIGHT AMONGST THEMSELVES SOME MORE, LIKE THEY HAVE FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS.
