EoZTV: Harold Rhode on Jerusalem, Shiites and Sunnis

Here is part 2 of my interview with Islam expert Harold Rhode.

I asked him something I had always wondered: Does Jerusalem have any sanctity to Shiites?

He answered that it doesn't; Shiites consider Jerusalem to be a Sunni innovation to Islam and therefore forbidden.

However, Ayatollah Khomeini, a smart politician, chose to use Jerusalem as a rallying cry to attract Sunnis to Shiism. Hence, the annual Al Quds Day.

Rhode goes on to describe the incredible animosity between Arab Shiites, Persian Shiites and Sunnis.
