For those of us not clear on the distinction between Shia and Sunni, much of the rhetoric presented here in prior posts argues with the same force as the arguments between the Judean People's Front, and the People's Front of Judea.

These differences are rooted in so many deep historical and spiritual disagreements that it is impossible to make an objective statement like the one you are asking for. As Post 2 says with respect to the religious aspect of it, who is to say? It is ultimately a matter of faith. That so much violent politics has resulted from this difference is a profound tragedy, since of course the two parties agree on so many fundamentals.

This can not possibly be answered in an objective way.  Of course people who are Sunni will think they are right and the Shia are wrong.  And there's simply no way for human beings to know for certain which is right.
