It's called the Islamic state, but they shoot up mosques. Sounds real legitimate.

Once I saw this guy on a bridge about to jump. I said, "Don't do it!" He said, "Nobody loves me." I said, "God loves you. Do you believe in God?" He said, "Yes." I said, "Are you a Christian or a Jew?" He said, "A Christian." I said, "Me, too! Protestant or Catholic?" He said, "Protestant." I said, "Me, too! What franchise?" He said, "Baptist." I said, "Me, too! Northern Baptist or Southern Baptist?" He said, "Northern Baptist." I said, "Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist or Northern Liberal Baptist?" He said, "Northern Conservative Baptist." I said, "Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region, or Northern Conservative Baptist Eastern Region?" He said, "Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region." I said, "Me, too!" Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1879, or Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912?" He said, "Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912." I said, "Die, heretic!" And I pushed him over.

Isis are salafists, while Iran is Shia, and salafists consider all Shia to be heretics/apostates that must all be exterminated

There's a reason they were at war with almost every other Islamist groups during mid 2010's, while also simultaneously at war with multiple countries.

I always think of salafism as the “biblical literalist/creationist” stream of the “Protestant” Sunnis vs the “Catholic/orthodox” Shias - and god knows that the catholics and protties have been fucking with each others’ places of worship for centuries.

(Alternately - the haredi faction of orthodox vs reform judaism, which didn’t work out great for Rabin…either way it’s a gross oversimplification, but helps me keep the factional tensions in Islam more or less straight).

I've read that most Islamist organizations are opposed to IS because they aren't particularly ideological. They are truly just a terrorist organization that wants to control people by any means necessary.

That may be somewhat true of most Sunni orgs/states (if overly broad and simplified)…but Iran and other Shia dominated countries are a whole different ballgame.

Most salafists view Iran and 12er Shia in general as the #1 group that must be extinguished to please God.

They consider “faking” being a muslim as the worst sin of all, and consider Shia veneration of certain Islamic figures (specifically Ali, but to a lesser extent other figured like Khadija and other family) and conducting burials near mosques be practicing polytheism and basically a mockery of Islam.

You’d already know this if you had a competent media class and educators growing up, but most westerners do not when it comes to this topic.

Let’s start insisting that Muslims learn about the silly doctrinal bullshit that separates Christian denoms?

Lol no. And westerners will continue to roll their eyes at Shia and Sunnis, much less insane wahhabists, scream about takfir at each other while spraying AKs into the sky
