The Shiite and Sunni are not the same as the Cathor and Prontant sects in Europe

Obviously not , given that the word Prontant doesn't appear to exist in the English language. The Cathors of Medieval France didn't actually fight with anybody and were more akin to modern day Sufi's if comparisons with Islamic sects need to be made. As a pacifist group of people they were hunted down and killed by the Inquisition. Hardly a war. (Unless of course you mean to say Catholic & Protestant, in which case you have proven that you clearly have no idea what you are talking about!)

Unfortunately most of your comment is unintelligible. The only part that I could understand is the subject title. Who says that the Cathors and the Prontant (which Google has no matches for) are the same?
