Ghassan al-Attiyah against Iraqi division between Sunni and Shiite
Friday, 13 May 2016
This week’s guest is Dr. Ghassan Al-Attiyah, the director of the “Iraqi Institute for Development and Democracy”. He says that Arab nationalism advocates and their leaders are mostly Shiite Arabs of Iraq who cannot be calculated on Iran. He believes that the division of Iraq on the basis of the Sunni and Shiite equation does not benefit the country and its people. He says that he supports Moqtada al-Sadr when calling for a civil state, because Iraq now needs a new vision.
