Sign this petition to reject Sunni-Shia violence

This petition had 117 supporters

Sectarian violance between Shia and Sunni muslims is escalating. The violance is intensifying and it is spreading to more regions of the world every year. Unfortunately millions of tolerant Shia and Sunni muslims are silent and do not realize how dangerous this situation is. Today we are witnessing violance in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq. Tomorrow it can expand into a full scale war between Iran and Saudi Arabia, There are large Shia (and Alawite) minorities in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait and Turkey. There is a large Sunni minority in Iran. 

The extremists who like to spread sectarian hatred are vocal. The secular and tolerant muslims are silent. It is time to express our concern and try to become more vocal in promoting tolerance between Shia and Sunni muslims. This is not a call for accepting the opinion of the other side. This is an invitation to all Shia and Sunni muslims to accept their differences and pledge to reject the growing sectarian hatred. Each Muslim must say I respect the right of other Muslims to be different even when I think their believes are wrong. 

Please sign my petition to show that you do not approve of discrimination or violance of Sunni against Shia and Shia against Sunni. Our voice must be stronger than the voice of hatred. Let us work together to raise at least one million signatures (yes I realize this is a very large target!) to send a strong message to political leaders of the Muslim world.  (Please forward this petition to others.)
