ABOUT THIS VIDEO

Sectarian extremists in the Middle East today use history as a tool to inflame their followers. Here’s a sermon from an Iranian-backed TV channel in Iraq in which the preacher references the killing of Shi’ite patron saint Husayn to pin collective guilt on all Sunni Muslims today. History is full of heroes who built bridges and fought for peace. For liberals in Arab lands today, it is the brightest spots in the region’s history that need to be remembered and retold.
