Theological Questions

Happy Shavuot : Dry Bones cartoon, Kirschen, ISIS, Sunni, Shia, Moslem, Muslim, Islam, War,
According to the Times of India, in Syria and Iraq the ISIS Warriors (Sunnis) quiz captured Muslims to find out if they are the hated Shias with 4 questions:
4 questions ISIS rebels use to tell Sunni from Shia

1. What is your name? A quick look at an Iraqi's national identity card or passport can be a signal. Shias believe that the leadership of Islam was passed down through the Prophet Muhammad's son-in-law Ali and his sons Hussain (or Hussein), Hassan and Abbas, among others. While some Sunnis and members of other Islamic groups may also have those names, ISIS would most likely associate them with the Shias.

3. Where do you live? In every city and province, even majority Sunni ones, there are enclaves that are known to be Shia. People who said they came from one of those neighborhoods would most likely be killed.

3. How do you pray? Shias and Sunnis offer prayers in slightly different ways, with Sunnis generally folding their hands or crossing their arms in front of their stomachs and Shias leaving them extended, palms resting on their thighs.
In a chilling video that appeared to have been made more than a year ago in the Anbar Province of Iraq, ISIS fighters stopped three truck drivers in the desert and asked them whether they were Sunnis or Shias. All three claimed to be Sunni. Then the questions got harder. They were asked how they performed each of the prayers: morning, midday and evening. The truck drivers disagreed on their methods, and all were shot.

4. What kind of music do you listen to? Recordings of religious songs could also be a tipoff. Similarly, even the ringtone on a person's telephone could be a clue because it might be from a Sunni or Shia religious song.-more

The latest according to Israel National News:
ISIS in Sinai Claims Attack on Hamas in Gaza
War of the terrorist groups? ISIS claims explosives attack on Hamas military post, after threatening war; Hamas is in denial.
"Islamic State's (ISIS) threats to declare war on Hamas in Gaza after the latter began a crackdown on local Salafist groups appears to be edging to fruition, after an ISIS-affiliate in the Sinai Peninsula on Friday claimed launching two "bombs" - reportedly 82 mm mortar shells - at Hamas posts in Gaza.
Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, which earlier this year swore loyalty to ISIS and changed its name to Sinai Province, claimed credit for the attack on a military post of Hamas's "military wing," the Al-Qassam Brigades in Khan Younis, located in southern Gaza."-more

View From the Middle East

The latest according to Aljazeera:
"The leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah has said his fighters would expand their presence in Syria, saying the group was engaged in an existential battle against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Hassan Nasrallah acknowledged for the first time that his Shia group was fighting across all of Syria in support of President Bashar al-Assad's government. He called specifically on his fiercest critics in Lebanon to back his intervention across the border, warning that their support for Assad's opponents would not save them from ISIL. "Today we are facing a kind of danger that is unprecedented in history, which targets humanity itself," Nasrallah said, speaking ahead of Monday's anniversary of the withdrawal of Israeli troops from Lebanon in 2000."-more

Partition

In 1947, Great Britain relinquished to the UN the power to make decisions relating to the status of "Palestine". The General Assembly appointed a special committee to deal with the matter. The committee proposed partitioning the land into two states, a Jewish state and an Arab state. On November 29, 1947, the UN General Assembly voted to accept that partition plan resolution, 33 to 13. To this day, 68 years later, Not a single Arab state has accepted Israel as the Jewish State.
