It's truly pathetic to see how involved these clerics get when they want to incite their followers to kill others.

It seems that the Shiite require a rallying call to defend themselves from the sunni who are slaughtering the shia wholesale in Iraq. I suspect we'll see a ramping up of the kill-fest currently taking place in Iraq and some holy killing in Syria.

We have seen a synthesis by way of the arab spring wherein the darker sides of fundamentalist islam lacks the rationalist tendencies of modernity.
