Any thoughts from those who know something about Eastern Europe on this thesis?

"The truth of the matter is that the current conflict is but a manifestation of an ancient schism between East and West that has been tearing Christianity apart for 1,500 years."


It seems farfetched to me, but my most extensive experience with Orthodoxy has been in Palestine, where sectarianism between Christians is pretty much non-existent.
