Iraq Sectarian violence is part of US/Israel politics

In one of AlJazeera editorials, the problems of current Iraq Shia Sunni conflict and Middle east politics is discussed. The author who is a Iraqi academic researcher and lecturer in the United States, raises some very important points regarding the causes and aims behind these recent violent outrages in Iraq.

Dexter Filkins, an Iraq based New York Times journalist claimed in a recent radio interview that the Sunni in Iraq have now “realized that the Shia are their true enemy, not the Americans.”

But the fact is that this statement contradicts history, Iraq Sunni and Shia have been living together for centuries. Modern history books are free from any reference to war between them, but not until the US-led invasion of Iraq.

The Iraq conflict is being fired up by US politics just to cover up the middle east violence by giving statements like “Muslims harm each other more than Israel harmed Lebanese”.
