This is just hilarious.
Off the back of the new US House Intelligence Committe chair Silvestre Reyes thinking that Al-Qaeda was a shia organisation, the Sunday Times showed up a load of British MPs who have an interest in the Muslim world by finding they didn't fair much better in knowing the difference between sunnis and shias either.
... here is a simple cut-out-and-keep guide to the two dominant branches of Islam: Sunnis are the peace-loving, Saudi-backed wing who brought you Al Qaeda.
Shias are the peace-loving, Iranian-backed strain behind Hamas and Hezbollah. I hope that helps.
Never mind the branding of all Muslims into either being Al-Qaeda, Hamas or Hizbullah which Arab Media Watch rightly complain about. The astonishing point here is that anyone with an ounce of knowledge knows Hamas is not shia.
And this is the problem. Self-proclaimed experts, spouting off like nobody's business - making life and death decisions in the case of MPs - who in actual fact know absolutely nothing. Littlejohn meanwhile was not even put on the spot - he voluntarily took the time to compose this article and still got it wrong.
