Saudi Arabia vs Iran: The Sunni-Shiite Proxy Wars

Worth a listen.  Less than 5 minutes. Educational.

Note:  Shiite ideology seeks leadership from the line of Muhammad.  Ali was the 4th Caliph and the 1st from Muhammad’s blood.  The Sunni seeks leadership from those most knowledgeable and worthy in the ideology of Islam. Abu Bakr was the 1st Caliph.  His daughter was married to Muhammad, Aisha, at a very young age (7).
