      Representatives of rival Muslim streams showed viewers of Egypt's Al-Shabab TV just how disunited the Muslim world is a program streamed via internet on Sunday, September 9.

      Sunni activist Walid Ismail attacked Shi'ite activist Mahmoud Ahmad Mahmoud, after the latter made less-than-complementary claims regarding his wife's morals. This followed a claim by Ismail that Mahmoud had been disowned by his family after he turned to Shi'ite Islam.

      The debate was monitored, translated and republished by MEMRI.
