Remarks about the Intellectual Roots of anti-Shi‘ism

Global Salafism

The chapter traces the introduction of anti-Shi’ism into the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood through Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab, Muhibb al-Din Khatib and other thinkers of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood. It ends by considering the important Syrian thinker Sa’id Hawwa and the sectarian condemnation of Alawi dominance of the Ba’th party in Syria. Anti-Shi’ism found its way eventually, through Abu Mus’ab al- Zarqawi, into the civil war in Iraq, where it has been used to justify attacks on Shi’i civilians.

Keywords:   al-Zarqawi, Sa’id Hawwa, Muslim Brotherhood, Alawi, Anti-Shi’i, Ba’th, Syria, Iraq
