Wahabis/Salafists are the ones who comprise Taliban, Al-Qaeda members, found mostly around Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Afghanistan and elsewhere. they are pretty much, the Muslim version of the Evangelical church; only, if they're not kept under control, they can get dangerous. Salafists are the ones who are sniper-shooting Syrians and doing suicide-bombings around Syria and Iraq.
please look at this short beautiful story of:

please distinguish between sunni Muslims and extremist Wahhabi (Salafi).
Salaf literally means "past people"[=Sahaba] and Salafi means who follows Sahaba of prophet. but today Salafi is same as Wahhabi. but they do not like to be called Wahhabi. they prefer to be called Salafi. Wahhabism is founded by Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab based on beliefs of Ibn Taymiyyah in Saudi Arabia. today Wahhabism is based in Saudi Arabia and is propagating beliefs of Wahhabism in world very powerful and with high financial support by petrodollars from Saudi Royal family.
Wahhabi is in fact supported by US, Israel and England to make conflict inside Muslims and finally to destroy Islam.

"[en.sahih] Have you made the providing of water for the pilgrim and the maintenance of al-Masjid al-Haram equal to [the deeds of] one who believes in Allah and the Last Day and strives in the cause of Allah? They are not equal in the sight of Allah. And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people. [9:19]"
