For this assignment, create a 10- to 12-slide presentation in Microsoft PowerPoint that addresses the following points:
- What are the points of conflict between Sunni and Shia Muslims? Where do their interpretations of Islam differ significantly?
- How and when did these conflicts come into existence?
- In what ways do they share the same beliefs? Is antipathy toward the West an automatic position?
- Identify which nations are predominantly Sunni and which are Shia. Illustrate with a map.
- Provide an example of at least one significant terrorist action by each branch of Islam.
- Discuss whether counterterrorism authorities should prepare differently for Sunni terrorism than they would for Shia terrorism.
