Rashid al-Khayoun: Iraqi spring

Sunday, 30 June 2013

The guest of this week’s episode is Iraqi historian and researcher Rashid al-Khayoun, who says the “Iraqi Spring” began in 2003, and calls on Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki “to maintain a liberal legacy.” Khayoun says it is necessary “to correct the wrong concept of presenting Saddam Hussein as a Sunni and... Maliki as a Shiite, because sects don’t tolerate the tyranny of rulers, even if they belong to their sect.”
