in response to reader comment: the Ideology...; In Response to Sohel Bahjat's response

First. Shia have extremists too, I'm not denying that. Also, Shia do believe only in Defensive Jihad, just like Jews who believe in defending their homeland. Also, the Iraqi Constitution states clearly that the Iraqi army shall not fight in any other country.

Regarding Al-Mizan Tafseer, yes they might agree with the Sunnis that Mohammed fought wars, but Shia have more resources to follow and those are 12 infallible Imams who never ruled in government, except Ali. You are wasting time, efforts, and money because Iran's support for terrorism is not even 5% of what the Saudis and Qataris are doing, yet all the west solely concerned about Iran.
