03/11/10 – Raed Jarrar – The Scott Horton Show

by | Mar 11, 2010 | Interviews

Raed Jarrar, Iraq consultant for the American Friends Service Committee, discusses the Iraqi political landscape in the wake of recent elections, the reemergence of former Prime Minister Ayad Allawi in a popular non-sectarian nationalist coalition, how the US occupation has distorted Iraqi politics and prevented the formation of functional government, unfounded fears that a US withdrawal will incite a civil war and why Iraq’s ‘sectarian’ strife is better understood as a political struggle between nationalists and separatists than a religious fight between Sunni and Shia.
