The last time the Islamic Arab nations experienced a rift of this magnitude may have been in 632 AD, when Muhammad’s followers divided over which of his sons was the rightful inheritor of the mantle of leadership of the Islamic world.  That argument laid the groundwork for the ongoing struggles between the Sunni and Shia sects.
