Around the 15th and 19th century some Indian emperors have executed several Shias Scholars and destroyed their sacred sites. In modern time, outsiders have exploited the division of the groups by using Sunnis to suppress Shias.

Despite the tension, many Sunnis and Shias refuse to allow their differences to divide, nor bring hostility between them.

Jamestown is where it all began… King James Ⅰ sent 144 men to America to settle there, and it caused a lot of bickering and fighting along the way. The English men believed that the natives that already lived there would welcome them, so they let their guard down and were attacked. The reason that the natives didn’t want them there was because their chief Powhatan received a prophecy that another group would later become better than his, and he tried to defeat any other group that opposed his. Since the natives wouldn’t help them, the men started going very hungry, along with the intense heat, and within 8 months, more than half the men died. The hunger got so bad, that John Smith started trading with the enemy, the natives.

After the French and Indian War, Great Britain was in a huge debt and had a lot more land to rule. As a result of their debt and their new land, they began to put taxes on the colonists living in that land. The colonists were angry about these taxes because they were getting taxed without representation in British Parliament. Two acts that caused some of these reactions are the Stamp Act and the Townshend Acts. The British actions after 1763 caused numerous reactions from the colonists, which ultimately led to the American Revolution.
When Britain first passed the Stamp Act colonists began to revolt and went into great upheaval. Colonists didn’t like the idea of being taxed by a country thousands of miles away, and the phrase: “no taxation without representation”, became popular. The colonists eventually got this tax repealed in 1766, one year after its creation.
