Do Shia Extremists Cooperate With Sunni Radicals?
So while Western academics and State Department Arabists apparently believe that it is highly unlikely that Iran and al Qaeda would cooperate because of the supposedly unbridgeable confessional divide within Islam, an Arab newspaper in business in Iraq believes that it is virtually self-evident that they “fly as a single flock.” If it is in fact implausible that Sunnis and Shi’ites would cooperate against the United States, why would an Arab newspaper catering to Arab Muslims say otherwise?
It is, alas, all about us. Killing us, that is. Even ancient enemies can make occasional common cause when the objective of bleeding the Great Satan is the goal.
