FRONTLINE: The War Inside Islam

A FRONTLINE special investigation into the history of the theological struggle between Sunni and Shi'a Islam, the rise of ISIS, and the political maneuvering by Saudi Arabia and Iran and their war by proxy for power and influence in the Middle East -- and the implications and challenges for the West and the world. The broadcast was supported by a cross-platform digital strategy and promoted extensively through social media, and supplemented by web-exclusive reporting and post-broadcast reports. The War Against Islam is also being released in its entirety on FRONTLINE's podcast series.
