If an all out war between Sunnis and Shias breaks out, and we support the Sunnis, does that make us team ISIS?

Rant time.

I saw this on my phone so I can't easily post screenshots, but Yahoo made the purely idiotic decision on mobile to replace the ribbon of articles with a ribbon of comments from their head article, of which was just happened in London. Sure enough, all three of the comments loaded were all hateful anti-Islam comments assuming it was a Muslim who was behind the attack.

Instead, the attack was on a mosque.

At least 13 dead and 50+ injured in Barcelona as mentioned above, both numbers expected to rise.
