A story as old as Islam

“Shortly after Muhammad’s death 1,400 odd years ago Islam split into factions which have been at each others throats ever since. Internecine warfare began then and has continued right up to the present day. From the very beginning, all over the Islamic world adherents of different strains and interpretations of Islam have been busily killing each other in order to establish their dominance and it is continuing to happen as we speak. We see it in Syria, Egypt, Iran, the rest of the Middle East and everywhere there is a significant Islamic presence. Islamists, e.g. followers of Islam, killing other Islamists in the name of their interpretation of Islam…its a story as old as Islam itself.
