Avi Lipkin gives us insights into the Islamic faith.
The Sunnis and the Shiites have been in conflict since the death of Mohammed himself. There are 1.3 billion Muslims in the world:roughly 85 percent are Sunni and 15 percent are Shiite. The one thing they have in common is their Islamic faith. You can't understand the events unfolding in the Mid East without understanding their important and complicated history and relationship.
