Video by CaspianReport goes through the reign of the last Rashidun Caliph (Ali Ibn Abi Talib), the rise to power by Muawiya I (who would later found the Ummayad Caliphate) and the sectarian split by Khwarij.
The assassination of Ali was a boiling point for internal divisions in the Caliphate. It saw Muwaiya's rise to power and the later founding of the Ummayad dynasty. The "Partisans of Ali" formed the Shia sect. And the Khwarij birthed many of the tactics and doctrines of modern day "Islamic" extremists.
