And denounced Sunni Vice President Tareq al-Hashemi on Monday, Maliki, calling him a conspirator and unjust and is allied with the Shiites in Iran and religious hatred of his movement to measure the death sentence issued against him on Sunday in connection with incidents of killings carried out by sectarian death squads.

The ruling was accompanied on al-Hashemi, a Sunni minority leaders bombings and attacks on Shi'ite targets that killed about 115 people in one of the bloodiest days since the withdrawal of U.S. troops in December. The government quickly Hashemi blame Sunni insurgents.

He called al-Hashemi, speaking from exile in Turkey to remain calm but also called to express their strong opposition to the prime minister who is now his efforts to preserve the unity government composed of Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds scattered apparently since the arrest warrant Hashemi on the same day that I left when U.S. forces.

Hashemi said at a news conference in Ankara that al-Maliki and its legal system finished the last stage of the theater campaign against him by a kangaroo court.

"We call on the Iraqi people to stand up to al-Maliki and his aides who want sectarian strife" and to oppose what he called Prime Minister plots and provocations quietly.

And develop internal unrest in Iraq's Shiite majority in the face with Sunni Arabs and minority Kurds. The tension rages in particular with regard to the distribution of oil wealth.

But Iraq and its population of 32 million won its share of ethnic and sectarian divisions that pervades the region, where Sunni leaders have been in most other countries Shiite confrontation with Iran and its allies, including President Bashar al-Assad.

The issue of al-Hashemi for many Sunni leaders in Iraq a clear example of political interference in the work of the judiciary by the Shi'ite leader say he controls the security forces, by retaining control of personal defense and interior ministries.

And many Sunnis feel Iraqis that they have become marginalized since the fall of Saddam Hussein nine years ago and the rise of the Shiite leaders in the elections sponsored by the United States. Sunni politicians have accused al-Maliki not to implement a power-sharing agreements backed by the United States, a charge supporters deny Maliki, noting some Sunnis who occupy important positions.

Said Saad logistical leadership coalition of state law, led by al-Maliki for the death sentence issued against Hashemi he would not hold the political process or destroys them. He said he refuses to turn the issue into a political issue, saying it was a judicial issue.

But Maliki's performance shows that a discount is quite severe.

Has revealed al-Maliki, a former language teacher West made ​​his way upward in the ranks of the Shiite Islamic Dawa Party for skill in the use of Iraqi political factions against each other and maintain a balance in the midst of difficult regional diplomacy.

After al-Hashemi fled the country earlier this year exceeded Maliki short-term boycott of the parliament and the government of the US-backed Iraqi bloc of the year and ended up more division which increased power of Shiite leader in the last command.

In recent Maliki took advantage of the divisions in the Kurdish and Sunni blocs to overcome an attempt by his opponents to join forces with some of his Shi'ite allies to impose a no-confidence vote.

And despite the fact that Iraq is much calmer about the height of violence reached in 2006 - 2007, the attacks yesterday followed the style of attacks that have emerged since the withdrawal of U.S. troops at the end of last year, a suicide every three or four weeks strike widely across Iraq فيقتلون Dozens of people in coordinated attacks.

Iraqi authorities were quick to download Sunni insurgents said they those with sectarian goals responsibility for Sunday's attacks that targeted security forces and cafes, mosques in Shiite neighborhoods.

Analysts say al Qaeda's wing in Iraq represented in the group, the Islamic State of Iraq, which weakened fight U.S. forces for years began to benefit from the money and morale high with Sunni Islamist fighters crossing the border into Syria to participate in the fighting there.

Said John Drake, a security analyst with any to any group of consultants "are likely to terrorists seeking to sharpen any sectarian tension. This does not appear that the terrorists in an alliance with al-Hashemi, but it is highly likely they are trying to take advantage of the communal sensitivity of his case."

The insurgents aimed to exploit the wider discontent among Iraqis who are fed up with the government's failure to restore basic services after more than nine years on the U.S. invasion.

But there is a bigger question mark with respect to the stability of the country in the longer term may be linked to what is happening in Syria, where a majority of Islamists large part of the Sunni forces that are trying to overthrow Assad, who belongs to the minority Alawite Shiite and his family are long-standing Arab ally of Iran.

Maliki is also close to Iran, which provided him like Syria haven from persecution under Saddam he resisted calls by Sunni Arab leaders to take a tougher stance against Assad.

Maliki relies who has been prime minister since 2006 to help Tehran Shiite rally in his home and supported both Tehran and Damascus his fragile new government after inconclusive parliamentary elections in 2010.

Syria represents a sensitive issue for owners. And feared Shiite leaders in Iraq and Iran that result in the collapse of the Assad government to divide Syria on a sectarian basis and eventually lead to the rise of radical Sunni regime hostile to Baghdad.

Iraqi leaders criticized Damascus for harboring militants sneaked across the border when U.S. troops fought against Al Qaeda and Sunni Islamists. Baghdad fears he could Former Baathists and other Sunni Islamists of using Syria again a haven for attacking Iraq under the new system.

The bounce off the wave of violence already from Syria to Iraq again. Baghdad officials say that Sunni Islamist fighters crossing the border into Syria from Iraqi territory. The missiles hit a Syrian border town of Qaim, Iraq this week, killing a young girl.

And linked to many of the Iraqi Sunni tribes in the border areas in the provinces that are considered strongholds for the year bonds of kinship and sympathy with its fellow sons of Syrian Sunni tribes.

Said Sheikh Hatem Suleiman Sheikh one of the largest tribes in western Anbar province, said Iraq will witness a storm, adding that the crisis in Syria will probably end during the next few months and that will be difficult for Iraq.
