Isis defeat in Mosul could spark ‘genocide’, leading cleric warns

The defeat of Isis in Mosul could spark “genocide” in Iraq as sectarian groups clash, a Shia leader has warned.

Muqtada al-Sadr, a powerful cleric, political figurehead and warlord, believes divisions between Sunni and Shia Muslims will worsen when Iraqis lack a common enemy.

“I’m afraid that the defeat of Daesh [Isis] is only the start of a new phase,” he told Middle East Eye.

“My proposal is inspired by fear of sectarian and ethnic conflict after Mosul’s liberation,

    In an “Alien vs. Predator” match-up of evil-doers do we really care if the Marquess of Queensberry rules aren’t exactly followed to a T?
    Quite the contrary.

      Perfect logic.
      We need a common enemy so we won’t become enemies.
      Therefore we must allow them to continue to exist and perpetuate their barbarities.
      If the whole world was ‘slamick they’d still find something to fight about.

        This is one of the characteristics of islam: they define themselves more by what they are not (the ‘other’) than by any spiritualism in common.

      Muz say they love death — why should we deny them, as long as the killin’ is intramural?

    Everything islamic sparks genocide.

    We should fully support the Kurds in the North, they love the west. They could set the example for the whole region.

    So is he saying leave isis alone or muslims will kill?

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      Muzzies will kill either way.

    So I guess diversity isn’t their strength? But we’ll be different won’t we?

    Bring it on, Mookie.

    There will be peace in Iraq when the last Shi’ite and the last Sunni blow each other up.

    We could help by airdropping weapons to both sides, nothing but small arms and lots of bad ammo.

  • Tooth&Claw

    Oh please, Sunni and Shia have been at each other’s throats since old Mo died.
    Those two groups are itching to fight and to declare one group the victor. And you thought the schism between Protestants and Catholics was bad.

  • Spatchcocked

    We had the thirty years war regarding faith based mayhem…..these clowns have been duking it out schismatically for over 1000 years……OVER 1000 years and are still at it….
    Superstitious inbred barbarians.

      I am not in favor of this ‘Slow Jihad’.
      Killling a few of us every now and then just makes our Politicians and the Left —- LOVE them MORE.

    Well, that sounds terrible! However…

    I don’t care. 😉

  • Watchman

    I take this is a call for the Coalition forces: American, British, Spain, Poland and Australian, to return to Iraq and volunteer as targets so that good muslims don’t have to, and then all the muslims can line up together to shoot at those Coalition forces.

    Were ISIS to be wiped out, Trump would turn his attention to Iran. That’s when things will really get interesting.

        I would like to know why the USA protects them.
        This is one of the reasons why I wanted Trump to win.
