The reason why it didn't work is the same reason Christianity can't end Islam or Judaism can't in Islam or Islam can't end everyone by prayer or bead-rattling or by affirmation -and- is why all of those people put most of their time into pragmatic strategies (the ones who don't are easily wiped out).
Iran is a perfect example -- compared to Iraq or most Middle Eastern countries.
