Edwin Moise writes: "Leftist political groups are notorious for the way they attack one another, fighting over doctrinal differences." I also noticed this phenomenon among leftist groups.

A similar phenomenon is noticeable among Islamists, who differ only on issues such as tactics not end results. John C. Zimmerman University of Nevada Las Vegas
