For some in depth reading:
On the Shia side of things, see Phillip Smyth‘s Hizballah Cavalcade posts at Jihadology. For the same on the Sunni side, see Aymenn Al-Tamimi‘s Musings of an Iraqi Brasenostril series, also on Jihadology. And for both and all else, well, there’s always Aaron Zelin‘s Jihadology itself!
