Milani explains that Iran and Egypt are very similar and that what happens in both places has shaped what happens in the Middle East for a hundred years. Milani notes that Egypt is the most important center of Sunni learning and that Iran is the most important center of Shia learning. The two countries, he says, have been very much in competition with each other for hegemony over the Islamic world.
