Hamas is sabotaging Sunnis

Reader comment on item: The Middle East and Islam Dominate U.S. Public Life

Submitted by Abudllah (United States), Jan 30, 2007 at 10:36

This may make little sense from what you see in the title, but think of it like this, Iran has been supporting Hamas recently, yet Iran is Shiite and Hamas is Sunni. Iran has made it clear their interest in supporting Hamas is to convert them to Shia Islam. This is an insult. Hamas knows this, yet takes Irans support. Why? Because they are only interested in money, so they can further destroy the Gaza Strip. Their interest is not in the lives of Palestinians, especially not their Sunni brothers, because they are worknig with the Iranians who hate Sunnis and want to convert all Sunnis. This is an outrage!

While the Sunni insurgency in Iraq is typically more violent than the Shia, for the most part, the Sunni in the Middle East are actually more often moderate. I want everyone especially in the West to know this, the Sunnis are not all terrorists. And also, Hamas does not represent Sunnis at all, they are only looknig to make money and cause suffering. They are destroying the Palestinian state, all in the name of Sunni Islam, despite their willingness to work with those who hate Sunnis and wish to convert Sunnis. If they cared so much for Sunni Muslims, they would never become the puppets of Iran.

It is time all Muslims stand up against those who would use Islam and destroy Islam for their own gains. They work for profit, not the Prophet.

Until all Muslims open their eyes and see they are being used, especially the Sunnis, this will not change. Hamas and others will allow Iran to convert all Sunnis and make Sunnis into their puppets just as Hamas has become. The Americans may have a foolish ideology, but I almost would rather see the Sunnis ally themselves with them than to be allies with those whose intent is to convert Sunnis to another sect of Islam, especially by those who openly hate Sunnis in the first place.

When will Muslims, both Shia and Sunni, open their eyes? The Sunnis are being used and converted, and the Shia are being controlled by Iran only to help Iran become more powerful.
