    Iraq’s Sunnis Divided Over Need for Their Own Federal Region
    by RUDAW

    BAGHDAD, Iraq – Iraq’s Sunni Muslims are united in their opposition to the Shiite-led government in Baghdad, but divided over whether the large minority should be pushing for the type of autonomy enjoyed by the ethnic Kurds in the north.

    A recent wave of protests against Prime Minister Nuri Al-Maliki’s government in the Sunni provinces – and a bloody government crackdown against demonstrators last month – has fueled calls for a federal Sunni Arab “triangle” in the densely populated regions of Iraq.

    “Now Sunnis understand why the Kurds had insisted on having their own federal region,” said Zafir Alani, a leader of the powerful Sunni Iraqiya bloc. “They wanted to secure their rights and avoid finding themselves at the mercy of central authority,” he explained, saying “Maliki’s unfair and unjust rule” had driven the Sunnis to demand their own enclave.

    Iraq’s ethnic Kurds gained autonomy following the 2003 US-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein. The Kurdistan Region has its own government, parliament, constitution and army.

    But Alani conceded that, “Sunnis have not agreed on the mechanism for such a federal region, and its implementation is not possible at this time.”

    Tariq Al-Hashimi, the Sunni vice president who fled Baghdad in 2011 after facing terrorism and murder charges, said that federalism was the right answer for Iraq.

    “From experience, I believe federalism is an optimal system for a multinational state. We are in the process of forming a Sunni federal region and there is enough support for the project. The announcement will be made at a proper time,” he said, painting perhaps an overly optimistic picture of events.

    .“I am for a Sunni region and the region does not necessarily need to be called a Sunni region. Sunnis have long wanted to have their own region,” Hashimi said.

    The idea of dividing Iraq into Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish zones was first proposed by US Vice President Joseph Biden, when he was a senator. But Washington no longer backs that proposal.

    All Sunni politicians do not back the idea of creating their own federal region, which constitutionally can be achieved through a referendum.

    “The idea of a federal Sunni region is not acceptable,” said Haris Jenabi, spokesman of the Sunni Endowment Diwan. He refused to reply to a question by Rudaw about what would happen if the vast majority of Sunnis vote for federalism.

    Qasim Kerbuli, a member of the organizing committee behind Sunni protests in Anbar province, said that the creation of a federal Sunni region is a last resort.

    “We don’t demand such a region at this time. Our priority is that Mr Maliki has to step down,” he said. “We are not ready to live under Maliki’s oppression. Our options are very clear: change of prime minister or a federal region for Sunnis.

    The PKK Has Acted, Now it is Turkey’s Turn
    by Hiwa Osman 4 hours ago


    The phased withdrawal of Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) guerrillas from Turkey into Iraq’s autonomous Kurdistan Region must be followed up with serious moves by Ankara to settle the Kurdish issue. Otherwise, it will create many problems.

    The peace agreement, which is hoped to settle a three-decade conflict in Turkey, seems to have been made with Erbil’s agreement and participation, and with its willingness to take part in helping the guerrillas settle. Erbil is coming under a lot of pressure from the rest of Iraq for allowing the PKK fighters into the Qandil Mountains and "violating the sovereignty of Iraq.”

    Last week, I took part in an evening talk show on Sky News Arabia with two other guests, one from Turkey and the other from Baghdad. The rhetoric from Baghdad was clearly against the arrangement and the temporary hosting of the PKK fighters in the Kurdistan Region.

    Here is the irony: In the past the Iraqi government showed little concern when Turkish warplanes bombed Kurdish regions inside Iraq’s international borders. But today, the issue of PKK fighters crossing into the Kurdistan Region for the purposes of achieving peace is becoming an issue for Baghdad.

    Some are even equating the PKK to the Iranian opposition group, Mojahedin-e-Khalq. The only possible explanation that one can see for this sudden interest by Baghdad in Iraqi sovereignty is due to Iranian influence.

    Tehran has been against the recent deal with the PKK, and is expected to play a role in disturbing the process. Being a step ahead of the game, Iran is expected to work through many avenues to keep the pressure on the PKK, the Kurdistan Region and Turkey.

    This is in addition to the many parties who do not wish to see peace prevail. Every conflict that lasts longer than it should produces warlords, who cannot imagine life without the conflict.

    As far as the Kurdish side is concerned, PKK leader Abdullah Ocalan has gone the extra mile with his call for peace, and ordering fighters to withdraw. In fact, quite a number of Kurds believe that the withdrawal of forces should not have happened without a response from the Turkish government to Ocalan’s March 21 call for fighters to disarm.

    The ball is now in the Turkish court. It must quickly reciprocate the withdrawal, seeing it as a part of the peace process, not an aim in itself.

    The Turkish government should quickly take serious steps and announce its plan and roadmap for peace now, not when the last PKK fighter has left.

    The longer the solution takes the more difficult it will be to achieve a permanent peace, and a just solution that dignifies the Kurds and their struggle for equality in Turkey.
