With constant violence arising between the two sects, it seems they can't come to the conclusion that they are equal in any way, shape, or form. It is as if each believes the other is a lower class than their own. Both are Islamic sects and aside from some religious practices, they aren't too different to the point where they should believe one is necessarily better than the other. However, the amount of Sunni there are in comparison to the Shiite is very alarming with the Shiite being highly outnumbered. The Sunni more than likely have the idea that since there are more of them than by default the must be the more important of the two sects. The message somehow needs to get across that they are all equal.
