    Catholics and protestants clash not knowing that they both are equally wrong in following Christianity, a religion and teachings created by Paul.

    The Shia and the Sunni clash is political. While the Shia as direct decendants of the prophet claim they are the superiors and should rule over the Muslims, the Sunnies just deny that and say that every one is equal, and no superiority claims in Islam. The shia's dont hate the sunnies because they both carry the same Quran and because they know sunnies can never be shia's. They just want them to recognise the Shia's as the superiors.

    Some sunnis hate shias. Some shias hate sunnis. Some catholics hate protestants. Some protestants hate catholics.

    But by no means all. Not a majority. Not even a large minority. Most live in peace, and accept that while their brothers and sisters have different faiths, they are still people of faith. Many even marry people of other faiths, while maintaining their own.

    Sunnis and Shias dont hate each other, the differences between them is only minor. Catholicism and Protestantism are like different religions...

    It's just the disagreements on some branches of faith. That's what really causes the problems. So I'm assuming that's why Catholics and Protestants fight as well. Not really because of 'hate'.

    I for one do not hate any shias or any muslims or any non muslims.

    World wide, in Modern Times, Cotholics and Protestants don't try to kill each other... That was just an Irish Thing... "The Troubles" were an extreme example of how Theism IS a form of mental illness.

    As for the actual question...

    Look at Saddam's "Ba'ath Party".

    It was founded upon Nazi Ideals...

    ► Google Video Search for: "saddam and the third reich"

    http://www.google.com/search?q=saddam+and+the+thir...

    from the website for The History Channel's "Saddam and The Third Reich"

    Few people realize that the Baath party was actually formed upon the principles and organizational structure of the Nazi party.

    Iraq, because of its oil and hatred of Jews, was an important battleground between the Axis and Allied powers in World War II. Nazi propaganda was broadcast throughout Baghdad, and Iraqis often went on rampages against Jews throughout the war. One of the most ardent Nazi supporters during WWII was named Khairallah Talfah. Talfah was Saddam's uncle.

    After the war, many of the key Iraqi Nazi supporters, all of whom evaded prosecution, wound up involved in Saddam's rise to power. This special examines the key individuals of the Iraqi-Nazi connection,

    the little-known battle for Iraq in WWII, and the strange link to Saddam Hussein.

    A good user post on the Doc I found:

    A fascinating documentary presented by the History Channel that links Saddam to Hitler through Michel Aflaq through Amin al-Husseini. Among the many ironies is the fact that Aflaq, one of the founders of the Ba'ath Party, was a Greek Orthodox Christian. Also, that the title "Grand Mufti" was created by the British, and that Grand Mufti al-Husseini was made a General by Hitler.

    The connection of al-Husseini to many modern day events is startling. Yasser Arafat was his nephew, and Michel Aflaq founded the Ba'thist party on al-Husseini's principles of Arab Nationalism. While head of a 30,000 man Muslim SS force that terrorized Hungary and Yugoslavia during WWII, al-Husseini's crimes against civilian populations laid the groundwork for the Bosnian War.

    As to any relevance to current events, the documentary reminds us how Iraq was formed from three separate, sometimes warring, regions of the Ottoman Empire: Mosul, Basra, and Baghdad. Now that the butcher Saddam is no longer there to hold these disparate regions together, could that be the answer to extricating ourselves from this folly?
