Talk:Wahhabism

We seem to be missing the criticisms of the Wahhabi movement from Shia Muslims. Wahhabi-ists consider shrines and icons to be a form of idolatry, and so destroy any remnants of early Islamic architecture and history, from Shia shrines containing portraits of Mohammed (a big thing in Iran, apparently) to their proposed destruction of Mecca and Medina.-- 194.81.33.57 (talk) 17:08, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Links with Islamic extremism[edit]

This section needs an overhaul and updating. I will attempt overhaul and expand it, keeping intact the links with Sayyid Qutb, Taliban, and al Qaeda. nobsIt all depends what ISIS is. 18:47, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

Merge with Salafism?[edit]

Salafism and Wahhabism overlap quite a bit, and their histories are very much intertwined. Should they be merged? CorruptUser (talk) 21:07, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Maybe. The current version of this page suggests Wahhabism is merely a subset of Salafism. I'd say go ahead and merge. FüzzyCätPötätö (talk/stalk) 21:26, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
Ideologically, it's easy to explain what each is. In practice, it is not so easy to explain what group of Wahhabi are at war with which group of Salafists, and why. Or why the warring groups each lay claim to the same name of each other's ideology. nobsI was in Bagdad when u wer swirling in yur Dads' bag. 00:02, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
