Because the Sunnis were always a physical majority as well as the ruling sect in most of the Moslem world, and so they never learnt to submit, Hupert Omuque5563, or so it seems to me. Even today, as I recall, Sunnis are 90% of the total Muslim population, while Shiites are 10%. Except for Iran and Bahrain, they are a small minority...and they only actually rule in Iran, if I understand correctly.

Brushing aside the obvious rhetorical aspect, and following tw's comment, one doesn't have to be 'tolerant' when one is solidly in the driver's seat.
