IRAQ: Sectarian tension ahead of polls threatens “humanitarian crisis” - analysts

A government move to exclude a number of prominent Sunni candidates from national parliamentary elections on 7 March could re-ignite sectarian violence and create a new humanitarian crisis in the war-torn country, according to some analysts.

"Iraq is on the verge of another humanitarian crisis if the current political situation continues to worsen between the political parties or between Sunnis and Shia over participation in the coming elections," Mohammed Abdul-Aziz Jassim, a political sciences lecturer at the University of Anbar, told IRIN.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And the primary beneficiary of blocking Sunni politicians in the upcoming March elections will be ...Iran.

Chew on that for a while.
