I don’t usually share stuff like this, but this particular piece of garbage is so preposterous - while at the same time – villainous, that it just has to be commented on. I chanced upon it at a financial website I visit quite routinely. The “presentation” in question is basically an ad for a company called Agora Financial, and what they’re peddling is financial/investment information. Their premise on why you would be interested in their crap is the “fact” that they have uncovered a gigantic coming tsunami that has been almost 1,400 years in the making!
Built on the illogic of ridiculously warped history which includes gems such as the, shall we say, “innovation” that the (“controversial”, according to this presentation) Prophet Muhammad passed away due to the consumption of poisoned lamb, this glorified ad goes on to suggest that a war between “shias and sunnis” is coming, and that it will engulf the entire Middle East.

That very same war which certain vested interest groups tried to spark within Iraq, but which never quite took off… why? Because, frankly, the shia/sunni divide is hogwash. Shias and sunnis have lived together throughout the muslim world, and but for the funded hatred by certain despots who also happen to be the favourite customers of the world’s largest arms vendors, there ain’t much raw material to work with there.
